What You Learn

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

  • Knowledge Development (online, home study, or in a classroom) to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives 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

The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the course, you'll make at least five pool dives and four dives at local dive sites under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.

The Scuba Gear You Use

In the PADI Open Water Diver course, you learn to use basic scuba gear, including a dive computer and standard accessories. A SUGAR LAND DIVE CENTER Representative will choose the equipment you wear to ensure your comfort throughout the course.

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers various home-study materials for the Open Water Diver coursebook and DVD package or a multimedia DVD. Recently PADI has enhanced this program by offering an internet-based eLearning option.

Contact SUGAR LAND DIVE CENTER to personalize the best study option for you!

PADI's Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology, and safety procedures. For each concept, you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you'll jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor.
