The UTD Recreational 2 Diver (Advanced Open Water Diver + Nitrox)

What is the goal?

During your UTD Rec 2 class or Advanced Open Water Diver class you will be taken through a series of dives that build upon the basics you learned during your open water training. But now we can focus even more on the more goal-oriented dives, like a deeper dive into navigation and diving with a light for communication, and even the optional night dive. Learn how to use an SMB. You will also be introduced to the first light form of critical skills training where your instructor gives you surprise failures during the dive. You will also learn how to dive with Nitrox and you will push your depth limit to 100ft or 30m. Our aim is really to advance your open-water skills and give you even more confidence to take on more challenging dives.

Who is it for?

Are you looking to expand on what you learned in your Open Water Diver course and would like to dive deeper? You can sign up for your UTD Rec 2 class today and you will not be disappointed, Looking to enjoy reef walls at the depth where the big fish hide, and visit those illustrious wrecks that ly beyond the 60ft 18m depth look no further this course will give you the skills you need to get there.

How long does it take?*

Normally the UTD rec2 Advanced class is done over 5-6 dives or 2-4 days.

What equipment do I need?

It’s really recommended at this stage that you start looking into investing in your own equipment. It is so much more likely that you will continue diving and get out more often if you have your own gear. But talk to your instructor about buying gear and rental possibilities.

What can I do after?

As a UTD Rec2 Diver or Advanced Open Water Diver, you can dive to 100ft or 30m using Nitrox 32% oxygen enriched air to extend your bottom time.

How do I get started?

Step 1: Purchase these online materials. These materials will be yours for life. Also, any future updates to these materials will automatically be updated so you can stay current with the latest knowledge. During the buying process, you will be guided through a registration waiver. Here you can choose your instructor. After the waiver has been completed your instructor will also be notified 

Step 2: Reach out to your instructor and schedule the class

Step 3: Get going with the online materials and supplemental materials you might receive.

Step 4: Spread the word you are taking this class, and start building your UNIFIED DIVING TEAM.

The costs and pricing structure for UTD courses is almost always built up in 3 sections
1:The price for the course materials you buy directly at the UTD website.
2: The price for the in-person instruction from your instructor
3: Local fees or diving expenses. These could be entry fees, pool rental, equipment rental, etc. inquire with your instructor for details about this. If this course requires the instructor to travel to or with you, the students share the traveling costs of the instructor.

*The course duration is determined by a baseline of the abilities of the average students and coupled with what we need to comfortably introduce the skills and go over the theory content. 

However, when you buy a UTD course from one of our instructors, you pay for training not for a “plastic reward for participation”. We will give you the ability to look at your strengths and weaknesses, and during the class, we can expand on your strengths and improve on your weaknesses. 

Scuba Diving is highly skills-based and theory-based, throw in some complex equipment and you get a mixture of many aspects to master. You should be comfortable with all three aspects to get the most out of your diving and be safe. All of us learn at different paces. It is therefore almost impossible to give everybody the same timeframe to master the complete curriculum.

Some students might need more coaching or just more time to master certain aspects of the course. You can always do so by seeking out more training outside the curriculum and the time constraints of the standard course layout. You can find the price for extra training with your instructor. 

If you together with your instructor decide that more training is needed, we have a document called “Path to completion” It will give you a clear path to reach your goal. That can be a beginner taking the first scuba class, or the advanced diver moving into technical diving. All will succeed…at their own pace.
