You want to dive under supervision

Short on time and long on the urge to become a certified diver? The PADI Scuba Diver certification might just be for you.
PADI SCUBA Diver Training Europe


This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification.

Particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily in the company of a dive guide or if you have limited time to devote to scuba certification, consider becoming a PADI Scuba Diver.

To take part in the SCUBA Diver course you must:

  • Be 14 years of age or above (10 years of age for PADI Junior Open Water)

(PADI eLearning requires an extra registration step for students under 13 years due to international internet laws)

This certification allows for progressive dive experience and is a good warm-up for the Open Water Diver course, if that’s your ultimate goal. PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:

  • Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor to a maximum depth of 12 metres.
  • Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in other diving activities as long as they have the required supervision.
  • Continue their dive training and complete PADI Open Water Diver certification and other courses such as Project AWARE and equipment specialty courses.

During the course you will need to complete the following:

  • Knowledge Development and Theory Parts 1-3
  • Confined Water Dives 1 – 3
  • Open Water Dives 1 & 2

You don’t have to wait to get going. With PADI eLearning and the PADI SCUBA Diver Course Online, you can start right now. The PADI SCUBA Diver Course Online lets you learn the background information you need before each dive at your own pace through friendly, interactive learning. It even helps you choose the PADI dive shop where you’ll make those dives.

Please contact us for more information on how to proceed with this.

You’ll use all the basic scuba gear which will be included with your course. A mask, snorkel, fins, buoyancy compensating jacket that holds your scuba tank, a scuba regulator that delivers air, a weight system and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply will also be used. Depending on the scuba diving environment, you’ll also wear either a full length or shortie wetsuit.

You may want to invest in your own mask, snorkel and fins since these personal items are a lot more fun to use when they fit properly. Please ask us about the scuba equipment you’ll use and how you can purchase your basic scuba equipment.
