Short on time and long on the urge to become a certified diver?
The PADI Scuba Diver certification might just be for you.
Our course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification.
This certification is particularly useful if you expect to go scuba diving primarily in the company of a dive guide or if you have limited time to devote to scuba certification.
This certification allows for ample dive experience and is a good warm-up for the PADI Open Water Diver course, if that’s your ultimate goal.
PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:
Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor to a maximum depth of 12 metres.
Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in other diving activities as long as they have the required supervision.
Continue their dive training and complete PADI Open Water Diver certification and other courses such as Project AWARE and Equipment specialty courses.
The Fun Part
The Scuba Diver certification opens the door on the underwater world for anyone who’s thought that a course would take too long or be too difficult.
Upgrade to Open Water Diver whenever you want! With less time than the Scuba Diver course takes, you can make the jump and start scuba diving independently whenever time allows or you’re up for more fun.
What You Learn
All the basics of scuba diving through knowledge development, a set of scuba skills in the pool that you’ll use again during open water dives, and an appreciation for the underwater world that will keep you coming back for more bottom time every chance you get!
During the course you’ll cover material and practice skills related to topics such as:
Buoyancy skills including comfortable ascents and descents, and breathing underwater.
Staying warm underwater, streamlining your swimming skills and buddy diving techniques.
Diving environments and aquatic life you’re likely to encounter.
Preventing common problems underwater.
An introduction to boat diving.
The Scuba Gear You Use
You’ll use all the basic scuba gear, which is provided by Dive and Sea Tenerife, and included with your course.
If you want to invest in your own mask, snorkel and fins we can help with choosing the correct items and ensure they fit properly.
A buoyancy compensating jacket that holds your scuba tank, a scuba regulator that delivers air, a weight system and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply will also be used. Also you will wear a scuba wetsuit .
The Learning Materials You Need
PADI’s Scuba Diver materials provide a comprehensive overview of basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you’ll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you’ll practice these skills with your instructor.
Once you’re a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures.
