LEARN TO DIVE WITH A PADI DIVE CENTER
HOW DO I LEARN TO SCUBA DIVE WITH A PADI INSTRUCTOR?
Becoming a PADI scuba diver is a wonderful adventure! PADI Scuba certification includes three phases:
1. Knowledge development of PADI Open Water Diver Course
During the first phase of your PADI scuba lessons, you'll learn the basic principles of scuba diving such as:
- What to consider when planning dives.
- How to choose the right scuba gear for you.
- Underwater signals and other diving procedures.
You'll learn this valuable information by reading it in the PADI Open Water Diver Manual or by using the tablet version - PADI Open Water Diver Touch™, or online with PADI eLearning®.
At the end of each chapter, you'll answer questions about the material to ensure you understand it.
Along the way, let your PADI Instructor know if there is anything you don't understand.
At the end of the PADI course, you’ll take a final exam that ensures you have thorough knowledge of scuba diving basics.
You'll also watch videos that preview the scuba skills you'll practice in a swimming pool or pool-like environment. In addition to the video, your PADI Instructor will demonstrate each skill for you.
2. Confined water dives with PADI Open water Diver Course
This is what it’s all about – diving. You'll develop basic scuba skills in a pool or in confined water – a body of water with pool-like conditions, such as off a calm beach.
The basic scuba skills you learn during your PADI certification course will help you become familiar with your scuba gear and become an underwater explorer.
Some of the essential skills you learn include:
- Setting up your scuba gear.
- How to get water out of your mask.
- Entering and exiting the water.
- Buoyancy control.
- Basic underwater navigation.
- Safety procedures.
You'll practice these skills with a PADI Instructor until you're comfortable.
When you're ready, it's time for your underwater adventure to begin at an open water dive site.
3. Open water dives with PADI Open Water Diver Course
After your confined water dives, you'll head to "open water," where you and your PADI 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 PADI 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.
HOW LOND DOES IT TAKE TO GET CERTIFIED PADI OPEN WATER DIVER COURSE?
The PADI Open Water Diver Course is flexible and performance based, which means that your PADI dive center can offer a wide variety of schedules, organized according to how fast you progress.
It’s possible to complete your confined and open water dives in three or four days by completing the knowledge development portion online via PADI eLearning, or other home study options offered by your local dive center.
Your PADI Instructor will focus on helping you become a confident and comfortable diver, not on how long it takes.
You earn your PADI certification based on demonstrating you know what you need to know and can do what you need to do.
This means that you progress at your own pace - faster or slower depending upon the time you need - to become a competent PADI scuba diver.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR LEARNING TO SCUBA DIVE?
If you have a passion for excitement and adventure, chances are you can become an avid PADI scuba diver.
You'll also want to keep in mind these requirements:
- The minimum age is 10 years old (in most areas).
- Student divers who are younger than 15 earn the PADI Junior Open Water Diver certification, which they may upgrade to PADI Open Water Diver certification upon reaching 15.
- Children under the age of 13 require parent or guardian permission to register for PADI eLearning, or to use PADI Open Water Diver Touch™.
- 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.
- In some areas, local laws require all scuba students to consult with a physician before entering the course.
Before completing the PADI Open Water Diver course, your PADI Instructor will have you demonstrate basic water skills to be sure you’re comfortable in the water, including:
- Swim 200 metres/yards (or 300 metres/yards in mask, fins and snorkel) without stopping. There is no time limit for this, and you may use any swimming strokes you want.
- Float and tread water for 10 minutes, again using any methods you want.
- Any individual who can meet the performance requirements of the course qualifies for certification.
- There are many adaptive techniques that allow individuals with physical challenges to meet these requirements.
- People with paraplegia, amputations and other challenges commonly earn the PADI Open Water Diver certification.
- Even individuals with more significant physical challenges participate in diving.
Talk to your PADI Instructor at your local PADI Dive Center for more information.
Each diver must have a personal set of the learning materials to use during the course and for reference after the course.
There several options available, depending on your learning style and technology preference, including:
- PADI Open Water Diver Online (web-based)
- PADI Open Water Diver Touch™ (combines manual and video in tablet-based learning)
- PADI Open Water Diver Manual, and watching the Open Water Diver Video on DVD either on your own or with your instructor
Your local PADI dive center can provide one of the options above as part of the course enrollment process.
You’ll also need a logbook and a dive-planning device such as a dive computer, RDP table or eRDPMLTM.
Your PADI Instructor will have you use the PADI Skill Practice and Dive Planning Slate during training, and you’ll find this tool useful once you’re certified.
I'M ALREADY A CERTIFIED DIVER, HOW DO I BECOME A PADI DIVER?
Scuba diving certifications from other diver training organizations can often be used to meet a prerequisite for the next level PADI course.
For example, if you have an open water diver or entry-level certification from another diver training organization, you may qualify to enroll in the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course, which is the next level.
You could not receive a PADI Open Water Diver certification unless you completed that course.
There is no simple “equivalency” or “crossover.”
The best option is to take the next step and continue your education.
If you would like to continue your dive training and receive a PADI certification, contact your local PADI Dive Center to ask about the options you have for obtaining a PADI certification.
I HAVE A PROFESSIONAL-LEVEL CERTIFICATION WITH ANOTER AGENCY, HOW DI I BECOME A PADI DIVEMASTER OR INSTRUCTO?
If you hold a professional rating from another diver training organization and wish to become a PADI Divemaster or Instructor, please contact a PADI Dive Center.
A dive professional in good standing with another diver training organization may meet the prerequisites for the next level PADI certification.
For example, a divemaster with another diver training organization may qualify to enroll in a PADI Assistant Instructor course or Instructor Development Course (IDC).
You could not receive a PADI Divemaster certification unless you completed the PADI Divemaster course.
There is no simple “equivalency” or “crossover.”
A dive Instructor in good standing from another diver training organization may be eligible to enroll in a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program.
This program is shorter than a complete IDC and focuses building upon your teaching skills by introducing you to the PADI System.
You must also successfully complete a PADI Instructor Exam (IE) to become a PADI Instructor.

It’s a good idea to refresh your CPR and first aid skills every 24 months, and that’s what the PADI EFR Refresher course is designed to do.
