Scuba Diver certification could be right for you if you’d like to become a certified diver but do not have enough time to gain your Open Water certification. In this program, you’ll start your progress towards Open Water certification by completing a portion of the classroom theory and confined water (shallow water) skills lessons required for Open Water certification, as well as two open water dives.
With a Scuba Diver certification, you can complete remaining skills lessons towards your Open Water at a later date and with any PADI dive center. With this certification you will be qualified to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster or Assistant Instructor to a maximum depth of 12 meters (40 feet).
