OPEN WATER DIVER The World's Most Popular Scuba Course

Learn to scuba dive in Ireland

 

The PADI Open Water Diver course

If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wondrous world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The PADI Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.

What You Learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study or in a classroom ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water (swimming pool) Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!

If you've tried diving through a Discover Scuba Diving experience, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.

Prerequisites

To enrol in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:

  • 10 years or older (PADI eLearning requires a minimum age of 13 years due to international internet laws)

The Fun Part

The fun part of this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you'll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

The Scuba Gear You Use

In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer, and standard accessories.

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Open Water Diver course like, for instance, a manual (book) and video.

PADI's Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept, you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Later, as a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures and to review what you learned.
