Upon completion of five dives, you will obtain a certificate of Junior Advanced Open Water Diver if you are 15 or younger, and an Advanced Open Water Diver certificate if you are 15 or older. You will be qualified for a dive up to 21 meters if you are 15 or younger and up to 30 meters if you are 15 or older.

If you find yourself attracted to a particular type of diving (e.g. Deep Diving, Underwater Navigation, Nitrox, etc.) and want to strengthen your skills as a diver in this area, you can carry on directly with the specialty because you have already completed the first required dive.
