A scuba diving certification or ‘Open Water Diver certification’ allows you to dive anywhere in the world. Similar to driving a car, scuba diving requires specific knowledge, skills and training. A PADI Open Water Diver certification is your passport to underwater adventure.
You can become a certified diver in as little as four days, or over the course of a year.
You must be at least 10 years old, able to swim, and in good physical health to enroll in a scuba diving course.

1.Knowledge development- During knowledge development, you’ll learn all about scuba equipment, familiarize yourself with scuba terminology, and watch videos of diving skills. It is self-study, so you control the time it takes for you to comfortably go through the material. Most people pace themselves and complete their knowledge development over a few weeks but it can be completed in a matter of days.
The most popular choice for knowledge development is eLearning, an independent study option where you read, watch videos, and take quizzes using your computer or mobile device. Complete your scuba studies whenever, wherever it’s convenient. On average, the program requires eight hours to complete.
At the end of knowledge development, you’ll take a final exam to ensure you have a thorough understanding of scuba diving essentials. Your PADI Instructor will answer any questions you may have along the way.
2.Pool practice- You’ll take your first breath underwater in a calm environment such as a swimming pool. You’ll practice basic diving skills such as clearing water from your mask, ascending and descending. Your instructor will demonstrate and review the skills with you until you’re comfortable performing them on your own. When you feel ready, you’ll move on to the final phase, open water diving!
3. Open water training dives- You’ll learn to dive by diving to a maximum depth of 60 feet. The open water course includes four open water dives in total, usually done over two days. With your instructor by your side, you’ll practice the skills you learned in confined water, and explore the underwater world.
• Price- $395 for the total class. Gear included are your BCD, regulators, tanks, weights and wetsuit. $175 is due upfront for the cost of the eLearning. Once this is paid you will receive an email from PADI with your link and code to start your academic sessions.
• Not included- Personal gear: mask, snorkel, booties and fins. Travel, lodging and food during training
