We start several new PADI Open Water courses each week. If you prefer to use e-Learning for the academic portion of your course simply come by, or call us, to sign up and we will send you your PADI eLearning link and get you scheduled for the confined and open water portions of your PADI Openwater course.
Sugar Land Dive Center also offers private, semi-private and accelerated e-Learning Open Water Courses.
Step One – Academics
During this portion of your training you will become familiar with basic diving principles and procedures. For example, you will learn the effects of pressure on your body, how to choose the right equipment, considerations for planning dives and more. You will either complete the academic portion of your PADI Open Water Class at Sugar Land Dive Center with one of our experienced PADI Instructors, or use PADI's Online Training to complete the academics on your own time, at your own pace.
Step Two – Confined Water (Pool) Dives
During this step, you will dive in our onsite, heated swimming pool and develop the basic scuba skills necessary to safely dive. You will learn how to set up your diving equipment, how to control your buoyancy, dive with a buddy and several other important and fun skills. The skills learned in our pool will prepare you for the open water dives in Step Three. In addition, you wll spend a short time in the classroom learning about additional diving opportunities, planning for dive travel and more.
Step Three – Open Water Dives
Get excited to experience everything you have learned in the freedom of open water. You will complete four open water dives over two days. During these dives you will apply everything you have learned as you explore the underwater environment.
As soon as your open water training dives are approved by your instructor, you will be a certified diver. PADI Open Water Diver certification is recognized worldwide so your diving experiences will be limitless.
