PADI Scuba Diver Course
From PHP 6,500
The Scuba Diver course takes 1 and a half days and consists of theory, pool skills and 2 Open Water Dives in the Sea, supervised by a Renewed Instructor. 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.
Scheduling a Course
Courses run 7 days a week and we aim to fit in with your schedule. The first part is the theory which usually takes 5-6 hours and can be done either online before you come ( e-learning) or in a classroom setting with an Instructor. If you do the e-learning before you come it will save you doing the theory here and save you a day of your holiday. With the e-learning completed before you come the diving part of the course can be completed in two days.
You should be reasonably fit and healthy and at least 10 years old. If you have any medical issues like Asthma or Ear problems, or you are on medications or you have Diabetes or a history of those things or any other medical issues you must let us know before you sign up. You may need to get a Doctor’s clearance to dive.
You also need to bear in mind that you cannot fly within 18 hours of the last dive. So that usually means not until 9AM the day following the last dive.
Scuba Diver Upgrade
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.
As a fully certified Open Water Diver you will then be able to dive to 18M with another certified diver. There is no need to dive with a professional. Junior Open Water divers are restricted to 12M.
To complete the upgrade you will have to complete Knowledge Reviews 4 and 5 from the Open Water Diver manual, and complete the Final Exam. You will also have to show that you can swim 200M and float for 10 minutes. Finally, you will complete Open Water Dives 3 and 4 in the sea to become a fully certified Open Water Diver.
