SCUBA diving for Beginners in 3 easy steps
Licence to DIVE
Your first level of SCUBA Certification: The PADI Open Water Diver Course
Whether your aim is to be an Ambassador of the Ocean, explore the coral reefs or simply earn some bragging rights, your SCUBA Diving certification starts with the PADI Open Water Diver Course. For a licence to explore 70% of our planet, your SCUBA course is surprisingly easy to begin. All you need is to be 10+ Years old, have adequate swimming skills and decent physical fitness! “Yay! I’m eligible!”
PADI Instructors are bound to an international curriculum so courses are standardized and licenses are internationally valid for your lifetime. With no prior experience of SCUBA needed, students go through three inter-related Modules or Phases.
Modules 1 & 2 at our customised training facility
Module 1 or Knowledge Development imparts basic principles of SCUBA diving essential for safe diving practices.
Module 2 or Confined Water Dives builds basic SCUBA skills and confidence.
Bright-eyed and ready to go, we then head out to our Open Water Dives in Module 3. Here, skills are mastered and confidence boosts as we explore the reefs over four dives.
Through all this, your PADI Instructor works tirelessly to keep safety and education their top priority. With your PADI Instructor satisfied with your performance, you have now entered the ranks of an international community of adventurers and explorers as newly certified PADI Open Water Divers.
“Woohoo! What do I do now?” Your Licence now allows you to travel and dive the world with your certified buddies to a depth of 18 meters/ 60 feet. So, is it hard to learn to dive? It’s as easy as Module 1, 2 & 3!
I must warn you though and those who are certified would agree, SCUBA diving is highly addictive! You may find yourself longing for the ocean in the midst of your bustling city.
