What are you going to learn on your PADI Open Water Diver course?

Theoretical part

You can start your theoretical studies on Koh Phangan with an online manual, or you will receive a paper manual in advance.
You will have to read through 5 chapters of the PADI Open Water Diver manual, which can be supplemented by watching 5 parts of the training video. After that you complete 5 knowledge reviews, 4 tests and a final exam related to the 5 chapters you studied.

Practical part

Practice includes 5 confined water sessions*. During those sessions you will master equipment setup skills and core scuba diving skills under the guidance of your PADI Instructor.
During the next 2 days you will complete 4 dives in the open water as you demonstrate previously acquired skills in conditions that replicate real dives. At the end of each dive you will take an underwater tour and enjoy the underwater world of tropical coral reefs.

*Confined water is a general term that refers to either a swimming pool or an open water site that offers pool-like conditions regarding clarity, calmness, and depth. It has both shallow water and sufficiently deep water to allow student divers to meet all skill performance requirements.
