This certification allows for ample dive experience and is a good warm-up for the Open Water Diver course, if that’s your ultimate goal.

How to get started

This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification. Particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily in the company of a dive guide or if you have limited time to devote to scuba certification, consider becoming a PADI Scuba Diver.
The Scuba Diver certification opens the door on the underwater world for anyone who’s thought that a course would take too long or be too difficult. The PADI Scuba Diver programme is a pre-entry level certification that is perfect for vacationers or people who only plan to dive a couple of times a year. As a sub-programme of the PADI Open Water Diver Course, the PADI Scuba Diver rating allows you to get certified quickly and easily by minimising time constraints.
