Phase 1- You will have read and complete Knowledge Reviews for Peak Performance Buoyancy (PPB), Search and Recovery Diver(S&R), Night Diver, Underwater Navigation, and Deep Diver.  Although we recommend these particular Adventure Dives, you can choose others to replace PPB, S&R, and Night.

Phase 2- You will join your PADI Instructor at Windy Point (Lake Travis) on Saturday morning.  Your Instructor will review the Knowledge Reviews with you then complete PPB, S&R, and Night Adventure dives.  On Sunday morning you will complete a Deep and Underwater Navigation Adventure dive to complete the required training.  An optional 3rd Adventure dive can be completed for an additional fee (see below).
