All the details:

If you've already completed PADI Scuba Diver, book this course to upgrade your certification to the full PADI Open Water Diver. What happens next?​ You'll need to complete chapters 4 and 5 of your eLearning package including the final exam. You will already have access to this from your PADI Scuba Diver course (if you completed the course with a manual then please call the Dive Academy team on 01935 353525 to discuss options). Typically this takes approximately 3-4 hours over three chapters. You don't need to do this all at once, but you do need to complete your eLearning prior to your pool date(s). The Dive Academy team will contact you to arrange your pool training, this would typically be done in three 1-1.5 hour sessions for 12-13 year olds or one 3-4 hour session for adults and includes a skills refresher from pool dives 1-3 before moving on to dives 4 and 5. You'll then complete qualifying open water dives 3 and 4 on one day. While all equipment rental is included within your course fee, we recommend that you purchase your own mask, snorkel, boots and fins. These will improve your comfort underwater and will be fabulous items for both diving and snorkelling after the course. However there is no need to rush out and purchase these in advance, a full range is available within our dive centre and your instructor will be able to help you select correctly fitting equipment. We also offer a discount on snorkelling packages. Your course fee also includes all tuition, learning materials and kit rental. Entry to the Open Water dive site at Vobster Quay costs £23 which is payable directly to the site operator on the day and is not included within the course fee.
