As easy as that! You’re on the best trek to become an Open Water Diver!
To be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver, you need to be at least 10 years old, medically fit for diving, and able to swim. Also, you will have access to a tablet.
eLearning time commitment: 5-10 hours.
The practical part on site: 12 hours subdivided into 3 morning or afternoon trips.
Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications, and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.
Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters, and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.
As you progress through the material, you’ll be presented with interactive presentations, including videos, audio, graphics, and text. Short quizzes gauge your progress and review and correct anything you might miss. This allows you to progress efficiently and at your own pace. To complete the five required Knowledge Reviews, you must be connected to the internet and logged in. After completing each Knowledge Review, you’ll receive an email from PADI with the results, so please check your spam filter or junk mail folder if you don’t see one.
