OPEN WATER DIVER The World's Most Popular Scuba Diving Course

The PADI Open Water Diver course with WATERDOGS SCUBA and SAFETY LLC

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderous 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!

Your PADI Open Water certification allows you to dive to 60 ft maximum depth with a buddy of equal or greater experience, in conditions that are as good as (or better than) those in which you learned to dive.

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).
  • Demonstrate comfort in water and have basic swimming skills
  • Prior to any water sessions return the completed Medical Statement and have physician’s approval for diving, if needed
     

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 WATERDOGS SCUBA and SAFETY LLC Representative to ensure your comfort throughout the course.

Class Includes

  • Some self study (with manual and video)
  • 3 Personalized Classroom lectures
  • Up to 3 pool sessions
  • PADI Course materials, Manual, ERDP and books (included)
  • Four Open Water dives (2 days Park fees @Pennyroyal Quarry)
  • DAN insurance on student while training (self initiated)
  • 6 month subcription of DIVE TRAINING magazine
  • PADI Certification fees

Equipment Needed

  • Student provides basic snorkling equipment (Mask, Snorkel, Boots and Fins)
  • WATERDOGS SCUBA and SAFETY LLC will provide all scuba equipment required (BCD, regulator, wetsuit or drysuit, tanks and weights)

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course - book and DVD package or a multimedia DVD. Recently PADI has enhanced this program by offering the learning material in an Elearning environment via the internet.

Contact WATERDOGS SCUBA and SAFETY LLC 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 (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor.
