By the end of the course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge to dive at home or abroad and be an ambassador for the underwater world.
Prerequisites & Minimum Age Course prerequisites:
10 Years or older, medically fit for diving, able to swim, comfortable in the water.
Divers certified between the ages of 10-14 earn a Junior Diver certification

Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.
Completion of the Diver Medical Form could ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive. If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN. (DAN.ORG)
During the Open Water Diver course, your instructor will ask you to:
- Float or tread water without aids for 10 minutes
- Swim 200 metres/yards with no aids or 300 metres/yards with mask, fins and snorkel
The PADI Open Water Course
Phase 1 : Knowledge Development
You must be at least 10 years old, able to swim, and in good physical health to enroll in a scuba diving course. You may be required to get a medical with a physician (we’ll advise you if this is the case). If you meet these qualifications, the first thing you’ll do is learn scuba diving fundamentals during phase one, ‘Knowledge Development’.
During knowledge development, you’ll learn all about scuba equipment, familiarize yourself with scuba terminology, and watch videos of diving skills. It is self-study, so you control the time it takes for you to comfortably go through the material. Most people pace themselves and complete their knowledge development over a few weeks but it can be completed in a matter of days.
Following completion of your self-study, you’ll go into the classroom phase with your instructor which could require up to eight hours to complete. At the end of knowledge development, you’ll take a final exam to ensure you have a thorough understanding of scuba diving essentials.
Phase 2: Confined Water Dives
During phase 2, you’ll take your first breath underwater in a swimming pool. You’ll practice basic diving skills such as clearing water from your mask, ascending and descending. We’ll demonstrate and review the skills with you until you’re comfortable performing them on your own. When you feel ready, you’ll move on to the final phase, open water diving!
Phase 3: Open Water Dives
You’ll learn to dive by diving to a maximum depth of 60 feet. The open water course includes four open water dives in total, usually done over two days. We’ll be with you as you demonstrate your mastery of the skills you learned in confined water and begin your exploration of the underwater world.
Most student divers complete their dives close to home. There is an option for you to complete your four “check out dives” on a tropical holiday; ask us about an Open Water referral which allows you to take the knowledge development and confined water sessions in one place and your ocean dives in another!
After completing four open water dives and all course requirements, you become a certified diver – a title that will last a lifetime.

Your PADI certification never expires; but if you haven’t been diving in a while, it’s better to be over-prepared than risk a problem because you forget something important. Dive shops also appreciate seeing a recent ReActivated date on your certification card.
It’s easy to fit a scuba refresher course into your busy schedule. Using a computer or mobile device, watch videos of how to perform basic scuba skills and review dive planning and safety procedures – whenever, wherever it’s convenient for you.
Complete an optional water session where you’ll practice setting up dive gear, make ascents and descents, and review any scuba skills you may have forgotten.
