You will get a PADI manual and DVD for home study then schedule a class time to take 4 short quizzes to be sure you’re getting it. We will them review the RDP or dive computer to log your dives. At the end of the class, you’ll take a quick exam that makes sure you have all the key concepts and ideas down. You and your instructor will review anything that you don’t quite get until it’s clear. There is no lecture this is all home study and we administer tests.
This is what it’s all about – diving. You develop basic scuba skills by scuba diving in a pool or body of water with pool-like conditions. Here you’ll learn everything from setting up your scuba gear to how to easily get water out of your scuba mask without surfacing. You’ll also practice some emergency skills, like sharing air or replacing your scuba mask. Plus, you may play some games, make new friends and have a great time.
Over the course of these dives, you attain the skills you need to dive in open water.
Open Water Dives
After your confined water training, you and the new friends you’ve made continue learning during four open water dives with your PADI Instructor at a dive site. This is where you fully experience the underwater adventure – at the beginner level, of course. You may make these dives near your home or at a more exotic destination while on a scuba vacation.
