The eLearning modules cover topics such as dive equipment, diving physics, physiology, dive planning, underwater communication, and safety procedures. You can progress through the materials at your own pace, and there are knowledge assessments to test your understanding.
Confined Water Training
Once you have completed the online learning portion and passed the knowledge assessments, it’s time to put your skills into practice. You will participate in confined water training sessions. Under the guidance of a PADI Instructor, you will learn and practice scuba skills in a controlled environment, such as a pool. These sessions will cover essential skills like equipment assembly, underwater communication, buoyancy control, mask clearing, and emergency procedures.
Open Water Dives
After mastering the necessary skills in confined water, you will move on to the open water dives. The course includes four open water dives spread over two days. During the dives, you will apply the skills learned in the confined water sessions and explore the underwater world. An experienced instructor will accompany you to ensure your safety and provide guidance throughout the dives.
Upon successful completion of the knowledge assessments, confined water training, and open water dives, you will be awarded the PADI Open Water Diver certification. This certification enables you to dive with a buddy to a maximum depth of 18 meters (60 feet) and is recognized worldwide.
