Take a Scuba Lesson with the PADI Open Water Diver Course and get your PADI scuba certification. 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 ( in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
- Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills (normally in a pool)
- Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!
- If you’ve tried diving through a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.
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 will be learning in a pool to do all the different skills needed to keep you safe in Open Water. You will then do four dives at a local dive site under the supervision of your PADI Instructor to qualify.
The Scuba Gear You Use
In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear. The equipment you wear varies somewhat, depending upon whether you’re diving in tropical, temperate or cold water. You can find everything at http://www.sloughscubastore.co.uk/
The Learning Materials You Need
PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course and we will provide you with the Ultimate Crew pack which contains everything you need to complete the course. 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 DvD demonstration. Then you’ll jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor. Later, as a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures and to review what you learned.
