If you are already certified as PADI Scuba Diver you qualify to upgrade from this limited certification to get the full Open Water Diver license.
Scuba Diver Certification is useful if the open water training is interrupted because of medical issues.
Another benefit of this 'half-way' course is if students' cannot meet all of the scuba performance requirements to certify open water.
Continue with the remaining two theory modules and finish the two confined and open water training dives and you are almost there.
The additional costs of this upgrade are often outweighed by the convenience and flexibility.
✔ Your own dedicated private scuba instructor
✔ Free use of modern scuba gear for all confined and open water training dives
✔ Two classroom knowledge development theory sessions
✔ Two swimming pool or confined water training dive sessions
✔ Two scuba dives in the open water environment around the Pattaya Islands
✔ Hotel transfers to and from your accommodation in Pattaya
✔ Food and soft drinks during the trips on the dive boat
✔ The PADI Open Water Diver Certification Card and Training Manual
Part two of the course is completed by passing the open water theory exam.
Successful completion of the additional scuba training potentially removes the depth and supervisory related restrictions of Scuba Diver Cert and upgrade's your future dives to a maximum 18 meters when you are accompanied by another certified diver. See the details of Open Water Diver.
