Entry Level Scuba Courses

PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver Referral

Course Information

Going on holiday but don't want to spend half your vacation in a classroom or swimming pool doing your training? Then the Open Water Referral course is ideal for you.

Before you go on holiday you can get your theory and pool sessions out of the way, meaning all you have to do on holiday is your 4 Open Water Dives.

The new digital learning program means you can do all the theory at home at your own pace, in the comfort of your favorite arm chair. Once you have completed the 5 theory sections and knowledge reviews there is the final exam to complete then you are ready for your pool sessions.

The confined session then introduces you to all the equipment and in water skills you are required to complete. The pool sessions are conducted in our onsite heated swimming pool, to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during your first SCUBA experience.

Once you have completed all your theory and pool sessions you are ready for your 4 open water dives which you can complete during your holiday in tropical surroundings. All you need to do is book into your local dive centre where ever you are going and present all the necessary paperwork we will supply you with after completion of your pool sessions.

The course can be started whenever you are ready but you must complete the 4 open water dives within 12 months of starting the course.
