How does the course Work?
Simple - you complete knowledge development at home with your manual and a DVD. Your instructor will then ask you to complete 5 quizzes to check understanding.
Then it's off to a local swimming pool to learn how to dive and develop your skills. This is the safer place to master and practice before going out into open water. There are five modules to complete during these sessions.
Now to the open water. This can be the sea or an inland lake or quarry. You will need 2 days to complete at least 4 dives. As part of these dives you will be demonstrate that you can be a diver and handle any problems underwater.
Once all this is completed - your instructor will award the prestigious PADI Open Water Diver Certification.
