PADI Open Water Diver Course
& Beyond in Pune
The PADI Open water course is easily one of the most popular Recreational Diving Courses globally and is your passport to the “certified diver” fraternity.
Designed to take a beginner through the stages of converting into an independent SCUBA Diver, the Open Water license is your first true step into the beauty and magic of the Oceans.
As long as you are 10 and above, can swim 200 meters freely using any swimming stroke, and tread water for about 10 minutes, you are eligible to sign up for the PADI Open Water Diver Course. 10-15 year old earn the Junior Open Water diver certification allowing them to dive to 12 meters while everyone above 15 years dives to 18 meters / 60 feet below.
Absolute SCUBA has a fun yet intensive approach to this Course; we believe solid foundations (read, Good Training) make for a good and safe diver. You will find our Instructors are warm, friendly and complete Professionals when it comes to Training.
The PADI Open Water Diver Course has 3 modules to complete within a Year of starting. Module 1 & 2 completed form a “Referral” – where you can complete the last module and your Course with any PADI SCUBA diving centre in the World.
Or you could simply join us on any of our monthly Dive trips to complete the Course with an Absolute Experience! We guarantee it will be Different.
Read below to know more about how to get your SCUBA diving license (a.k.a certification card) and explore the other 70% of your Blue Planet !
Theory, in short, is the most essential thing to know about SCUBA diving. It’s not boring sermons to go through; you read through relevant information on what goes on when you SCUBA dive – to your Body, to the air you breathe, to the equipment you use and understanding the Element of oceans themselves. You learn about “Diving Tables” and learn about Nitrogen! The theory prepares you for an easier transition into the world of SCUBA before Module 2 begins.
Knowledge Reviews at the end of each chapter prepare you for your SCUBA theory sessions with your Instructor and a Final Exam.
This theory comes to you via PADI e-manuals and we strongly urge Students to sign up and get access to this Manual well in advance of their Pool Training sessions. It doesn’t require more than a daily hour of dedicated studying to complete the manual and reviews in 5-6 days and doing so will better prepare you for Module 2 next.
