Effective August 2010 RSTC approved the Supervised Diver standard.
This standard covers the requirements to conduct dives for divers with a limited diver rating.
These divers must dive under the supervision of a certified dive professional to a limited depth. The Supervised Diver standard is a subset of the Open Water Diver standard. All the information and skills required for certification as a Supervised Diver are part of the Open Water Diver standard. Agencies that offer this level of certification may have procedures a diver completes to upgrade to an Open Water Diver rating.
