One thing I get asked all the time.  “Which courses should I pick for my MSDT Prep?”  The night diving course is a good choice.  The Night Adventure Dive (Night Dive #1) is not core now for Advanced Open Water Diver.  A lot of AOW courses still do it though.  If so, then divers must do the Night Diving Knowledge Review (Part I) from the Adventures in Diving Manual.  The min. age for this dive is 12 years.  If you are a night diving instructor, then you may teach the full PADI Night specialty to Jr. Open Water Divers.  If AOW students choose night diving, then you can teach them the Night Diver speciality by doing Dives #2 and #3 and KR Part II from the Night Diver Manual, which they would then need to own.  PADI Divemasters must have done some night diving.

Night diving can help you to schedule more dives for your guests.  Students may do a max. of three training dives in 24 hours.  “Night diving” now means any time after sunset to before sunrise.  Night diving is a great way to teach some of the skills that you will need for wrecks and caverns.

When night diving, you will see different behaviour from diurnal life, e.g. parrot fish excrete a cocoon sleeping bag made from mucus.

As the night diving student course has a min. of three night dives, the instructor course has a min. of one.
