You can also choose the Computer Diving and Rift Diving courses. Each course you complete can earn you credits toward other certifications. 

You have 8 El Nido dives sites to choose from: South Miniloc, Twin Rocks, West Entalula, Pagluguban Dive Site, Popolcan Island, Helicopter Reef, Nat Nat Beach, and Address Reef. All of these sites are home to diverse marine life, which will make your diving courses more memorable.

When you are finished with your 5 specialty courses, you will be able to do advanced open water dives without assistance.
