The PADI Scuba Diver course is a subset of the PADI Open Water Diver course. If you’re short on time but really want to become a diver, the PADI Scuba Diver rating might be right for you ̶ particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily with a dive guide. This course is an intermediate step for earning an Open Water Diver certification, if that’s your ultimate goal.
The PADI Scuba Diver course is ideal for those with limited time. It involves 3 modules of theory from the Open Water course, half a day of confined pool training and 2 open water dives up to 12 meters.
You will receive a certification that lets you dive to 12 meters under the supervision of a Divemaster or Instructor. This license is valid worldwide.
PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:
- Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet.
- Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in dive activities as long as properly supervised.
- Continue dive training by completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification and taking certain specialty diver courses.
