What does your training for PADI Scuba Diver course include?

Theoretical part
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 will need to complete 3 knowledge reviews and 3 tests related to the 3 chapters you studied.

Practical part
Practice includes 3 confined water sessions*. During those sessions you will master basic safe scuba diving and equipment setup skills under the guidance of the PADI Instructor. The next day you will complete 2 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 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 of the skill performance requirements.
