To be a certified as a PADI Open Water Diver, you need to be at least 10 years old, fit for diving, and able to swim.  Divers between the ages of 10 through 14 are certified as a PADI Junior Open Water Diver.

After enrolling, each student completes the entire self-study online manual , including filling out the knowledge reviews at the end of each chapter and take the required quizzes and final exam.   Next, you will complete the confined water pool sessions and four open water training dives with your PADI Instructor.  The open water dives will be done at one of our local lakes.

What diving equipment will I need?
