PADI Scuba Diver
Thinking of getting certified for an upcoming vacation, but don't have the time
to put into a regular diver course? Now there's a quick and easy program designed
especially for you! This is your chance to slap on some fins, strap on a mask and
experience an intense adventure in a short amount of time.
Why PADI Scuba Diver?
The PADI Scuba Diver program is a pre-entry level certification that is perfect
for vacationers or people who only plan to dive a couple times a year.
What do I need to start?
As a subprogram of the PADI Open Water Diver program, the PADI Scuba Diver rating
allows you to get certified quickly and easily by minimizing time constraints. With
the PADI Scuba Diver certification you can dive under the direct supervision of
a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor, Instructor or higher professional on your
next vacation or dive trip
Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water
can earn a Scuba Diver certification. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child
between these ages, there is a PADI Junior Scuba Diver program available.
What will I do?
Throughout the course, you’ll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive
equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by completing pool dives, knowledge
development sessions and by making two open water (ocean or lake) dives.
How long will it take?
PADI programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the
course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you.
