“The purpose of the Self-Reliant Diver specialty course is to recognize and accept the role of the buddy system and its contributions to diver safety while identifying and developing self-reliance and independence while diving. There are two reasons for an experienced diver to take the Self-Reliant diver course: To develop the skills of planning and carrying out dives without a partner when preferred or necessary and to sharpen skills of diving self-reliance, making the diver a stronger partner in a dive pair or team.“
