What You Learn

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development (classroom, home study or online ) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives at local dive sites to review your skills and explore!

If you've participated in a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.


To enroll in the PADI Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:

  • 10 years or older (PADI eLearning requires a minimum age of 13 years due to international internet laws).

*Classes may change dates or location at any time based on variable factors. Additional fees may apply for Open Water check out dives depending on location and time of year (Dec through March). For example, if we go to Florida for final certification dives there is an additional expense. Please call 803-788-9166 for any questions.
