Who this course is for
Traditionally the Open Water Course has been viewed as the first step for a certified scuba diver, the Scuba Diver Course was introduced for those who do not have enough time for that program. This one, being a little more than half of the open water course content, typically runs over 2 days, compared to 3 to 4 for the open water. If you only plan to dive to 12 meters or shallower, with a professional divemaster or instructor, this course is for you. After completing this program, you can upgrade to the full open water course anytime by completing the balance of the course.
What’s in it for you
With this course, you gain your first scuba diving certification, valid for life, and recognized anywhere in the world. You will be qualified to dive to a maximum of 12 meters, with a divemaster or instructor. You will be able to continue your training to PADI open water diver at any time.
