Class Overview

What's Involved

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases (click on plus sign for more info):

Knowledge Development
You will learn the basics about scuba diving through a combination of classroom lecture, videos, and independent study* *eLearning options available for additional cost, please call for more information.
Confined Water (Pool) Dives
You will practice what you learned in the classroom, and over the course of five confined open water dives, will develop the skills you need to complete the open water dives.
Open Water (Lake) Dives
You will demonstrate your mastery of scuba skills during four open water dives conducted in the lake. Upon completion of your open water dives, you will be certified.

What's Required

The PADI Open Water Diver course has some basic requirements (click on plus sign for more info):

Minimum Age
The minimum age is 10 years old to enroll in the PADI Open Water Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course.
Health
You must be in reasonably good health to enroll in the PADI Open Water Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course. All student divers complete a brief scuba medical questionnaire that asks about medical conditions that could be a problem while diving. If none of these apply, sign the form and you’re ready to start. If any of these apply to you, your doctor must, as a safety precaution, assess the condition as it relates to diving and sign a medical form that confirms you’re fit to dive.
Swimming
You will be asked to demonstrate basic swimming skills but don’t worry, you don’t need to be an Olympic swimmer.  Your instructor will assess your swimming ability by having you swim 200 metres/yards (no time limit, any stroke or combination of strokes can be used) and by having you float and tread water for 10 minutes (using any method you want).
