What are you going to learn on your PADI Scuba 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 need to read through 3 chapters of the PADI Open Water Diver manual, which can be supplemented by watching 3 parts of the training video. After that you have to complete 3 knowledge reviews and 3 tests related to the 3 chapters you studied.

Practical part

The entire practical part of the course will take place on Koh Tao. Practice includes 3 confined water sessions*. During those sessions you will master basic scuba diving and equipment setup skills under the guidance of your PADI Instructor. After this you will complete 2 dives in the open water by demonstrating previously learned 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 swimming pool-like conditions in regard to clarity, calmness, and depth. It has both shallow water and sufficiently deep water to allow student divers to meet all skill performance requirements.
