This course is designed for people that want to learn to dive, but don’t have a lot of time on their holiday. The Scuba Diver course teaches you all of the basics of scuba diving over 2/3 days and will allow you to gain a certification to dive anywhere in the World under supervision of a diving professional to a maximum depth of 12m.
You will complete the first three chapters of the PADI Open Water Manual and DVD. At the end of each chapter there is a "knowledge review" to ensure that you have understood the information. Your instructor will assist you with this and administer a short quiz. This is not meant to test you, it is to ensure that you understand the information. If there are any gaps in your knowledge your instructor will ensure that you understand before moving on.
Your instructor will demonstrate basic scuba skills to you in either a swimming pool or shallow bay which you will then practice. Only once these skills have been mastered will you move on to Open Water training. You will complete 3 confined water segments (usually in one session).
