If you want to try something new and completely different, then Scuba diving should be your best choice.
To become a scuba diver, start with the PADI Open Water Diver course, the world’s most popular scuba diving certification.
You can also read a complete guide How To Get Scuba Certified to understand better what is scuba diving.
Becoming a scuba diver is a wonderful adventure! The total duration of the course is around 7 days, depending on individual progress.
Scuba certification includes three phases:
1. Knowledge Development
During the first phase of your 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 the PADI Open Water Diver Manual your instructor will provide. 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 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. In addition to the video, your instructor will demonstrate each skill for you.
2. Confined Water Dives
This is what it’s all about – diving. You’ll develop basic scuba skills in a pool or pool likes confined water. The basic scuba skills you learn during your 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.
- Entering and exiting the water.
- Buoyancy control.
- Basic underwater navigation.
- Safety procedures.
You’ll practice these skills with an 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
After your confined water dives, you’ll head to “open water” in Sevan, where you will make four dives. On these dives you’ll get to explore the underwater world.
When you complete these steps you will receive your PADI Open Water Diver license which will allow you to dive anywhere around the world.
