The Open Water Diving course is the first level of scuba diving certification and is designed for individuals who want to learn how to dive safely and independently. This comprehensive course provides participants with the knowledge and skills needed to become certified recreational divers.

During the Open Water Diving course, students typically undergo a combination of classroom sessions, confined water (pool) training, and open water dives. In the classroom, students learn about dive theory, equipment, safety procedures, and environmental considerations. Confined water sessions allow students to practice essential diving skills under the guidance of a certified instructor in a controlled environment. These skills include mask clearing, regulator recovery, buoyancy control, and emergency procedures.

After completing the classroom and confined water sessions, students demonstrate their skills during a series of open water dives in a natural diving environment such as a lake, quarry, or ocean. These dives give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned while exploring underwater environments under the supervision of their instructor.

Upon successful completion of the Open Water Diving course, participants receive a certification card that allows them to dive independently with a buddy to a maximum depth of 18 meters (60 feet) in conditions similar to or better than those in which they were trained. This certification opens up a world of possibilities for divers to explore and enjoy the wonders of the underwater realm.
