Open Water Course - €425 - (With Ultimate Crewpack, Certification, Manual, eRDPML and PADI SMB)
The PADI Open Water Diver course includes three parts: Knowledge Development, Confined
Water Dives, and Open Water Dives. Knowledge Development covers the principles, concepts
and terms you need to know for dive safety and enjoyment. During the Confined Water Dives,
you learn and practice scuba skills in a pool or water with pool-like conditions. You'll enjoy
making one or more mini-dives, which take you through the same steps you follow when you
make open water dives. To complete training you practice, apply and demonstrate what you
learn during four Open Water Dives at a local dive site. There are 5 sessions in Confined Water
and 4 sessions in Open Water. Earning a PADI Open Water Diver certification shows that you
have met the course requirements. Dive centres require proof of certification before they will
rent scuba equipment, fill scuba cylinders or book dive excursions. As a PADI Open Water Diver,
you'll be trained to a maximum depth of 18 metres and are qualified to dive in conditions as good as, or better than, those in which you trained.
It's just the beginning of a lifetime filled with dive adventures. Shallower depth limits apply to divers under the age of 16.
The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:-
Knowledge Development (online, independent study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore!
