Finish all your theory at home via eLearning. Or pick up a manual on Bali 1 or 2 days before the start of your course to do some self-study and prepare. When you pick up the manual, you will also get a print out of the knowledge reviews which you will need to fill out and bring with you on the first course day. If you have done eLearning, make sure you bring your printed eRecord on the first day.
If you have not opted for eLearning, watch the video and make quizzes & exams at our dive center in the morning. If you have done eLearning, you will only need to do a quick review to test your knowledge. In the afternoon everyone will go to the swimming pool to learn the basic skills. There are 5 swimming pool sessions which will be done consecutively. Practice dive skills, learn how to plan your dives, how to solve problems underwater, and above all, have a lot of fun. If everyone in your group has done eLearning, you might already go to the pool in the morning.
Make two dives in the beautiful sea of Bali to review your skills and explore. You will repeat the skills that you have practiced in the pool the day before and might learn a few new skills. The 2nd day of the course we often go to Padang Bay or Tulamben for the dives. If you haven’t done eLearning, you will also finish any remaining theory.
Your final two dives of the course! You will review some skills again and, more importantly, will also get the chance again to explore the reefs of Bali. We usually go to either the famous USAT Liberty Wreck in Tulamben or the colourful reefs of Padang Bay. If you finished all theory and dives successfully you will be able to show off your PADI Open Water Diver certificate at the end of the day.
After the course, you get your PADI Open Water Diver certification, which is recognized worldwide. As a certified diver you have the freedom to dive with a buddy, independent of a professional. If you are younger than 15 years you will receive the PADI Junior Open Water Diver certification.
