If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderful world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The Open Water Scuba Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.

What You Learn

The Academics and Pool Training for the Open Water Scuba Diver Training is the FIRST step in learning how to dive:

  • Blended Knowledge Development  Classroom and eLearning to help you understand basic principles of scuba diving, and
  • Pool Training Dives (Confined Water) to learn basic scuba skills.

To get your certification, you will need to complete four additional Open Water Diver certification dives  (OW cert dives) after you complete this training  (confined water and knowledge development).  You have 12 months after completeing the training to complete these OW certification dives.
