What do you learn ? 

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three distinct sections …

Theory : The theory portion of the open water course includes book work, videos, study questions, and quizzes. The 5 dive theory modules cover a range of topics such as pressure-depth relationships, the underwater environment, dive planning, and equipment.

Pool Work : During pool (or “confined water”) classes, students practice basic diving skills in the pool. Divers practice all the skills that they use on open water dives like ear equalization and mask removal and replacement in this controlled environment before entering the open water.

Open Water Dives : Under the watchful eye of an instructor, you will apply the knowledge and skills learned in the theory and pool sections of the course on real open water dives.
