Feel like doing something totally different for your children's' Birthday - why not a Scuba Party?

 


Back to TopPADI Open Water

The PADI entry level for Scuba Certification is the the Open Water Diver Course. This is in three parts with details shown below.

These will be held over two / three sessions as necessary with the first session involving an introduction to the course, giving you your course materials and showing you the PADI Introduction to Scuba Diving DVD. The exact timings & venue will be confirmed between the students and the PADI Open Water Instructor but will be held during the evening from approximately 6:30 and 10pm.

The Skills Development Sessions

These are held on two evenings at either the British Club or at the Outram School pool on two of Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings.
The sessions will be held between approximately 6:30 and 10:30pm.

Qualifying Dives

The final part is the 4 qualifying dives in open water. These will be arranged separately at suitable (and safe) open water training sites in Malaysia. Other options are available
and can be discussed with your PADI Instructor during the commencement of the course.

Minimum Open Water Training: 5 Adventure Dives including Deep & Underwater Navigation Dives

Increase your knowledge, experience and confidence with the Advanced Open Water Certification.  Successful completion certifies the diver to a maximum depth of 30m.

For this you'll be pleased to know that there are no quizzes, exams or pool sessions....just some short chapters to read in the AOW manual and a knowledge review for each..

We normally do the Night Dive and the Deep Dive which means that after the weekend you will be qualified to do night dives and dives down to (30 - 40m) with a buddy. If you can complete the relevant knowledge reviews prior to the trip for these two Adventure Dives that saves a lot of time on the trip.

Depending on what else is happening on the boat we usually try to do some of the other three Adventure Dives necessary to complete the requirements of AOW qualification (one of these three has to be navigation).

These dives need to be done as part of a trip, and that depending upon the trip depends on what adventure dives are available
