SCUBA DIVER Short on TIme and just want the basics!

The PADI Scuba Diver Course with OCEANADDICTS

Are you short on time, but would like to become a certified Scuba Diver, then the PADI Scuba Diver certification might just be for you. This course is a subset of the PADI Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification. On certification you will be required to dive with a PADI Professional. The Scuba Diver course is  a good warm-up for the Open Water Diver course, if that's your ultimate goal.

PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor to a maximum depth of 12 metres / 40 feet
  • Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in other diving activities as long as they have the required supervision
  • Continue their dive training and complete PADI Open Water Diver certification and other courses such as Project AWARE and equipment specialty courses


The Fun Part

The Scuba Diver certification allowes you to experience the underwater world.  Upgrade to Open Water Diver whenever you want! With less time than the Scuba Diver course takes, you can make the jump to Open Water Diver certification and start scuba diving independently whenever time allows or you're up for more. This course is perfect for the person that has no time and is about to head away on a holiday where the dive will be guided by a Divemaster.


What You Learn

All the basics of scuba diving through knowledge development, a set of scuba skills in the pool that you'll use again during open water dives. During the course you'll cover material and practice skills related to topics such as:

  • Buoyancy skills including comfortable ascents and descents, and breathing underwater.
  • Streamlining your swimming skills and buddy diving techniques.
  • Diving environments and aquatic life you're likely to encounter.
  • Preventing common problems underwater.


The Scuba Gear You Use

You'll use all the basic scuba gear. You may want to invest in your own mask, snorkel and fins since these personal items are a lot more fun to use when they fit properly.  You'll wear a scuba wetsuit to enhance the comfort and relaxation during the PADI Scuba Diver Course.


The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Scuba Diver - book and video on DVD package or a multimedia DVD. PADI's Scuba Diver materials provide a comprehensive overview of basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Once you're a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures.
