Gaining the PADI Scuba Diver certification allows you to start diving only under direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster or Instructor. This does however restrict your diving experiences. We strongly advise that you take the PADI Open Water Diver Course which allows you to dive with any other diver at the same level of higher.
The course takes approximately 2 & 1/2 days to complete.
All sessions area available for referral to a Dive Centre abroad if not wishing to complete the qualifying assessment dives here in Kent in the UK.
We also can also arrange privately tailored courses to meet your requirements and schedule.
The course involves completing all knowledge Reviews and quizzes 1, 2 and 3 from the Open Water Diver Manual (home study) and then attending the knowledge development sessions 1, 2 and 3 with a PADI Instructor in our classrooms at Dive Machine.
You will then complete confined water pool sessions 1, 2 & 3 and finally complete Open Water dives 1 and 2 with flexible skills.
Children aged 10-14 will qualify as Junior Scuba Divers and be limited to 12m depth.
This includes: Use of all the necessary diving equipment throughout your course. Your own personal course CrewPack with, student manual, dive log book, electronic recreational dive planner (erdp), how to use the erdp booklet, blue Zipper waterproof wallet, PADI sticker etc.. On completion of the course you will receive your PIC Diver qualification card.
