The PADI Scuba Diver Certification Course is shorter than the full license. The benefits of the part course usually save you time and costs.
You will participate in the first three knowledge development sessions, pool training, and the first two lessons of the Open Water Training Dives.
This limited qualification is ideal for you if you expect to make future shallow dives accompanied by a professional guide.
The scuba diver card qualifies you to upgrade later to the full diving license of PADI Open Water Diver.
No prior diving experience is required and anyone who is in general good health, reasonably fit and comfortable in the water can become PADI Scuba Divers.
The minimum age is ten years old to begin, and children younger than fifteen will receive the Junior Scuba Diver rating.

It is possible to complete the theory, pool skills, and two training dives in one day. The theory consists of learning information from a dive manual, video or multimedia DVD, and three short multiple-choice test quizzes.
There are three corresponding pool or confined water skill sessions, and the package is completed by making two open water dives to a maximum of twelve meters. Therefore, most student divers take two days to complete at a more relaxed pace.
Students learn the basics of scuba through knowledge development, mastering in-water skills in a controlled environment and then repeating them in the training dives. Your instructor will cover the following topics during your lessons.
The underwater world will keep you coming back for more fun and adventure every chance you get!
The study materials required for the lessons are included in the price.
However, we offer other materials and training equipment at the Dive Center in Pattaya.
The gear used during the course is included in the price.
Standard scuba equipment would usually include a mask and snorkel, wet suit, buoyancy control device (BCD), regulator set, tanks, weight system, and fins.
Extra personal diving equipment that you may wish to purchase for your scuba lessons could be a dive computer, dive watch, underwater compass, waterproof camera, diver's knife, gloves and a log book which are also available from the Dive School.
The main benefit of completing the basic PADI Scuba Diver versus the Open Water Course is less time and cost. This is a quick and easy method to earn an internationally recognized and respected diving license.
There are limitations to this level, but later you can upgrade to Open Water Diver allowing you to dive independently of an instructor. The PADI Scuba Diver rating also qualifies you to take the PADI Equipment Specialist and Project AWARE Specialty certification courses.
