You need to answer questions about the basic principles of scuba diving, which shows that you know how to plan dives, choose the right scuba gear and understand underwater signals and diving procedures. You can learn this information in the PADI Open Water Diver Manual or by completing the PADI Open Water Diver eLearning course. Your instructor will demonstrate each skill for you and will get a chance to show you have learned the skills during your confined water dives. At the end of the course, you will take the final exam.
The Open Water Diver course consists of 3 major parts: theory, confined water, and open water dives. All parts must be successfully completed in order to obtain the most sought-after dive certification worldwide. Therefore, being great at theory and not so confident in water, or vice versa, is not a good start to your life as a diver.
After your confined water dives, you'll head to open water, where you and your instructor will make four dives, usually over two days. On these dives you'll get to explore the underwater world. You'll apply the skills you learned in confined water while enjoying what the local environment has to offer. Most student divers complete these dives close to home, but there is an option for finishing your training while on holiday. Your PADI Instructor can explain how you can be referred to another PADI Instructor in a different location.
