The Process

Academics

PADI's Online Training program is designed so that you can learn the academics at your own pace when it is convenient for you. You can complete the academics online and be ready to jump into the pool immediately.

Equipment

In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear, including a mask, snorkel, fins, regulator, buoyancy control device and a tank. The equipment you wear varies, depending upon whether you’re diving in tropical, temperate or cold water.

Pool Training

When you're fitted with your scuba equipment you can begin your pool training. We will put into practice the techniques you learned in the academics program. Your training dives will be logged and skills mastered before you move on to open water.

Open Water Training
