About PADI eLearning courses
During the PADI Open Water Diver course, you’ll learn what you need to know to explore the underwater world using scuba. Most people find it a rewarding challenge.
The PADI Open Water Diver course has three parts: Knowledge Development, Confined Water Dives, and Open Water Dives. Knowledge Development covers the principles, concepts and terms you need to know for dive safety and enjoyment. During the Confined Water Dives, you learn and practice scuba skills in a pool or water with pool-like conditions. You’ll enjoy making one or more mini dives, which take you through the same steps you follow when you take your open water dives. To complete your training, you will practice, apply and demonstrate what you learn during four Open Water dives at a local dive site.
Earning a PADI Open Water Diver certification shows that you met the course requirements. Dive centres and resorts require proof of certification before they rent scuba equipment, fill scuba cylinders or book dive excursions.
As a PADI Open Water Diver, you will be able to dive to a maximum depth of 18 metres/60 feet. You will be qualified to dive in conditions as good as, or better than, those in which you trained. It’s just the beginning of a lifetime filled with dive adventures.
