Computer Diver

The SDI Computer Diver Course is designed to expand a diver’s knowledge in the use of their personal dive computer (PDC) and is primarily intended for divers who are certified with agencies using traditional dive tables for planning, rather than PDC’s throughout training.


Who this course is for:

  • The certified diver looking for more information to maximize their use of a PDC for scuba diving


Course prerequisites:

  • SDI Open Water Scuba Diver, SDI Junior Open Water Diver, or equivalent

  • Minimum age 18, or 10 with parental consent


What’s in it for you?

  • Upon successful completion of this course, graduates may engage in diving activities without direct supervision of the SDI Instructor so long as the following limits are adhered to:

  • The diving activities approximate those of training

  • The areas of activities approximate those of training

  • Environmental conditions approximate those of training

  • Also, the SDI Computer Diver certification counts towards a single specialty rating to achieve the SDI Advanced Diver Development Program.


  • SDI Computer Diver minimum requirements:

  • Satisfactorily complete the SDI Deep and Dive Computer Knowledge Quests with a passing score of 80%, followed by 100% remediation by the Instructor

  • Complete all open water requirements efficiently

  • Demonstrate mature and sound judgment concerning dive planning and execution

  • Note: Junior divers (ages 10-14) must participate in diving activities with a parent, guardian, or dive professional.
