Scuba Divers: The first step to become a diver
The PADI or SSI Scuba Diver is the first recognised diving certification and is valid for the rest of your life - and you can complete it in just two days.
You will need to understand the most important parts of diving theory - why Mr Boyle is the most important person under water, how your equipment works and how you can decide whether you are up for a dive or not.
For your studies, you will have your own book, a video and a competent instructor - and you will see it is easy.
Because you learn diving in the water and not in the classroom, you will spend most of the time below the surface. That could be in the shallow part of the bay or in the pool. You will train the basic skills for safe diving: how to clear your mask, how to recover your regulator and, for sure, how to float in the middle of the water.
You will learn how to solve problems - what can I do if I am low on air? How do I react if my regulator starts to free-flow? And how can I help my buddy at the surface?
And because you want to communicate under water you will learn some important hand-signals.
After training your skills in shallow water, you will do two dives in the Open Water, where you recap these skills at a safe depth - and enjoy some fantastic diving.
As a Scuba Diver, you are certified to dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters, safe in the knowledge that you are at all times you have a Diving Professional with you. In just two more days, you can easily upgrade to become an Open Water Diver - now or in your next holiday, in fact wherever you find a PADI or SSI Dive Centre!
