Course Overview

DRAFT OLD VERSION LIVE

A student may decide to do a "Try Dive" or a "Discover Scuba Dive" session before deciding if they wish to do a certification course.

A student would then do either a "PADI Scuba Diver Course" or a "PADI Open Water Course" to get certified as a PADI diver (see the table below).

The min age for these courses is 10 years of age. Students who are younger than 15 are certified as "Junior Scuba Divers" or "Junior Open Water Divers". Once 15 we can apply for the standard "Scuba Diver" or "Open Water Diver" PADI cards. This does however incur a small admin fee which is paid to PADI to recertify (as a club we would also do a check / refresher dive with this diver).

A "Scuba Diver" can upgrade to become an "Open Water Diver" at any time by completing the open water course skills they have not yet done.
