PADI Scuba Diver Course
From PHP 12,500
The PADI Scuba Diver course takes one day of inwater training only and some elearning which must be completed before the in water training takes place. It consists of elearning theory, pool skills and 2 Open Water Dives in the Sea, supervised by a Renewed Instructor. It should take one day only. There is more than enough time for a student to complete all the requirements in one day. It is extremely rare that a student cannot complete the requirements in one day.
In the unlikey event that the student is unable to master the requirements in one day the student can come back for a remedial session the next day or on another day as long as he/she pays an additional php2000 per day for any remedial session. The course price covers training in the water for one day , an instructor for one day, equipment hire for one day and use of our diveshop for one day. Any additional day required for training for training is charged at an additional php2000 per day.
If a student is unable to complete the requirements in one day but is unable to come back for a remedial session then we will give the student a referral form which the student can use at any PADI diveshop to finish their training. The additional training will invole a fee from the new diveshop.Students who complete the course are certified to dive to a depth of 12m under the direct supervision of a Renewed Instructor or Divemaster. They can easily upgrade to Open Water divers when time allow. This course is ideal for those of you who are short on time and unable to complete the full Open Water Diver course. If you complete the Scuba Diver course you can easily upgrade(see below) to the full Open Water Diver licence when you are next on holiday.
The elearning should be completed at home before you come to the diveshop. Your instructor cannot take you in the water to begin training unless the elearning has been completed. This is why its of paramount imprtance for you to complete the elearning at home online before you start the actual training. This elearning will take you approximately 4-6 hours to complete.
