The Open Water Diver course is the world’s most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle. 

The Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

Knowledge Development (home study or in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving
Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills
Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!
If you’ve tried diving through a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full Open Water Diver course certification.


To enroll in the Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must:
Be 10 years or older (eLearning requires an extra registration step for students under 13 years due to international internet laws)

The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is . . . well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you’ll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you’ll make 4 confined water dives and 5 open water dives.
