Koh Tao is the most popular destination in the world for people to learn to dive and obtain the PADI Open water certification, the world’s most popular internationally recognised full scuba diving license.
The PADI Open water course consists of three sections; Knowledge Development, Confined Water training and the Open Water training dives.
Open Water Course Knowledge Development
You will receive the online PADI Open Water Diver manual and are required to use the manual as a reference whilst completing the knowledge development section which is divided into 5 modules.
This section involves completing 5 open book knowledge reviews and you need to watch 5 short videos. The manual has a series of quick quizzes that test your knowledge as your progress.
Your diving Instructor will review the knowledge reviews and elaborate on any information you don’t understand before administrating a 10 question quiz after the first 4 sections.
Once you have paid a deposit we will send your online PADI Open Water Diver manual and you can get started TODAY.
To save time you can choose to complete the e-learning only option that allows you do everything prior to arrival.
All you need to do when you arrive is a 20 question review to ensure you actually did the e-Learning yourself and we are ready to get you into the water.
Open Water Course Open Water training dives
Four open water training dives, conducted at four great dive sites around Koh Tao, scheduled over two days.
You get the opportunity to bring all your skill learning together, practice some of the skills you have already mastered, this time adapting them to an open water environment.
The rest of the dives will be doing exactly what you signed up to do…dive.
Explore the underwater coral reef, surrounded by a kaleidoscope of stunning color and an abundance of different marine life animals.
One thing we guarantee is that you won’t want the dive to end.
Upon completion of all the course requirements you are certified as a PADI Open Water Diver and you will be qualified to dive independently of a PADI Dive Professional down to a depth of 18m.
