PADI Open Water Course - FULL COURSE

Who should take this course?

If you’ve always wanted to take scuba diving lessons, experience unparalleled adventure and see the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. Get your scuba diving certification with the PADI Open Water Diver course through SCUBA DIVING SCOTLAND – the world’s most popular and widely recognised scuba course. Millions of people have learned to scuba dive and gone on to discover the wonders of the aquatic world through this course.

To enrol in a PADI Open Water Diver course (or Junior Open Water Diver course) with SCUBA DIVING SCOTLAND, you must be at least 12 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required.  If you are under 16 years old we may be restricted on what courses we can teach due to the child's capabilities or due to the size and fitting of the Drysuits for Open Water dives.

What will you learn?

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development ( online, independent study or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
  • Open Water Dives to use your skills and explore!

You may be able to  get college credit in some countries outside of the UK for the Open Water Diver course.

Short on time? The  PADI Scuba Diver course might be right for you.

How can you start learning now?

Enrol in Open Water Diver Online – PADI’s eLearning option – and you can start learning right away. PADI Open Water Diver Online gives you the background information you need to dive safely and allows you to study at your own pace through an interactive computer-based program. Get started now!

You can also start learning with PADI’s home-study materials – Open Water Diver TouchTM (a tablet app) or the Open Water Diver Manual and Open Water Diver Video (a book and DVD package). Stop by your local PADI dive shop to enroll in the course, get your materials and start reading the book and watching the video. Your PADI Instructor will schedule time with you to check your progress and make sure you understand important scuba diving information.

What scuba gear will you use?

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.  However, in Scotland we generally wear a Drysuit with undersuit for the Open Water dives.

Check with your Instructor at SCUBA DIVING SCOTLAND about the gear you’ll use during this course and get advice regarding buying your own equipment.

Next Step

Breathing underwater for the first time is something you’ll never forget, so don’t wait.
