The PADI Distinctive Specialty Courses with WEST SHORE SCUBA

PADI Instructors who have special scuba diving interests and expertise can write their own specialty diver courses. Some of the more popular distinctive specialty courses are described here, but your instructor may teach others that are specific to your local area. Be sure to check with a local  PADI dive shop about what is available and unique to the location.

Zombie Apocalypse Diver

Each student will be given a copy of the Zombie Apocalypse Diver Student
Manual and Survival Guide.  This book won the highly coveted Pulitzer Prize*.
Successful completion of the course will entitle each student to a Zombie
Apocalypse Diver

This class was designed with the diver in mind.  You will learn:
-Zombie Biology
-Zombie History
-Types of Zombies
-Real Life Zombies

Upon successful completion of the course:  A plethora, yes a plethora, of 
accolades will be bestowed upon the diver.

frames left after the apocalypse, but you can use it as kindling.

Second you get your PADI certification card which clearly states that you hold 
the rank of Zombie Apocalypse Diver!  Not that anyone will check your C-card 
after the world ends.
