Scuba Diving Courses: Getting Your 1st PADI Dive License
When People talk about taking Scuba Diving Courses or getting your ‘PADI’ they are talking about The PADI Open water Diver course, a 3-4 day program that fully trains you to dive independently. We recommend people start from Open water diver. However maybe you don’t have 3 days? If so you can certify as a PADI scuba diver in 2 days. This is part 1 of the open water diver course and it allows you to get your foot on the ladder of certification by allowing you to dive with guidance in shallow waters until you have the time to complete part 2 for full open water diver certification.
Have you Started your Scuba Diving Courses else where already? Perhaps you are looking for a PADI Open water Diver Referral Course. This is for those who have completed the Classroom and confined water pool sessions already and simply need to complete the open water dive segments of the PADI Open water Diver Course.
