Serious Diving Go Pro
If you don’t have enough time to complete the PADI Open Water Diver Course then you can begin your training and earn the PADI Scuba Diver. This includes the first 3 modules of the knowledge, 3 modules of the pool or confined water training and 2 open water dives.
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 Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor to a maximum depth of 12m.
- Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in other diving activities as long as they have the required supervision.
- Continue their dive training and complete PADI Open Water Diver certification and other courses such as Project AWARE and equipment specialty courses.
