PADI Scuba Diver

Short on time and long on the urge to become a certified diver? The PADI Scuba Diver certification might just be for you. This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification.

This certification allows for ample dive experience and is a good warm-up for the Open Water Diver course, if that’s your ultimate goal. PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Instructor to a maximum depth of 12 metres.
  • Continue their dive training and complete PADI Open Water Diver certification and other courses such as Project AWARE and equipment specialty courses
The Fun Part
The Scuba Diver certification opens the door on the underwater world for anyone who’s thought that a course would take too long or be too difficult.

  • Upgrade to Open Water Diver whenever you want! With less time than the Scuba Diver course takes, you can make the jump to Open Water Diver certification whenever time allows.
  • What You Learn
All the basics of scuba diving through knowledge development, a set of scuba skills in the pool that you’ll use again during open water dives, and an appreciation for the underwater world that will keep you coming back for more bottom time every chance you get!

During the course you’ll cover material and practice skills related to topics such as:

  • Buoyancy skills including comfortable ascents and descents, and breathing underwater.
  • Staying warm underwater, streamlining your swimming skills and buddy diving techniques.
  • Diving environments and aquatic life you’re likely to encounter.
  • Preventing common problems underwater.
 
The Prerequisites for This Course
To take this course, you must be:

  • 15 years old (or 10 years old for Junior Scuba Diver certification). Complete a medical statement or present a doctor’s authorisation showing you are ‘fit for sports diving’.
