OPEN WATER DIVER The Way The World Learns To Dive.

The PADI Open Water Diver course with DIVEWORLD

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wondrous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.


What You Learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!

If you've participated in a Discover Scuba Diving experience , the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.


The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you'll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.


The Scuba Gear You Use

In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer, and standard accessories. The equipment you wear will be chosen by a DIVEWORLD professional to ensure your comfort throughout the course. Why not add the PADI Dry Suit Specialty to the basic course to increase you comfort while training?


The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course - traditional manual and DVD package. Recently PADI has enhanced this program by offering the learning material in an E-learning environment via the internet and offline on a tablet, you choose which method suits your learning style.

Contact DIVEWORLD to personalise the best study option for you!

PADI's Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you'll jump in the pool to practice these skills with your instructor.

 

Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:

  • 10 years or older (PADI eLearning requires a minimum age of 13 years due to international internet laws).
