TRAINING PROCESS

If you’re looking to dive into the world of scuba, the Scuba Diver program is a fantastic place to start. It’s designed with you in mind, offering a blend of online learning and practical dive experience.

  • Online Learning:

    • Begin your scuba journey by accessing digital resources. These online modules cover essential theoretical knowledge, including dive physics, equipment, safety procedures, and environmental awareness.

    • You’ll learn at your own pace, absorbing information about buoyancy, pressure, and underwater ecosystems.

  • Confined Water Sessions:

    • Once you’ve grasped the theory, it’s time to get hands-on. These sessions take place in the swimming pool.

    • Under the guidance of your instructor, you’ll practice fundamental skills:

      • Assembling and adjusting scuba gear.

      • Clearing water from your mask.

      • Regulator recovery (finding your air source).

      • Buoyancy control.

      • Emergency procedures.

    • These confined water dives build your confidence and ensure you’re comfortable with the equipment.

  • Open Water Dives:

    • Now, the real adventure begins! You’ll head to a lake to conduct your open water dives.

    • During two open water dives, you’ll apply what you’ve learned:

      • Descend to depths of up to 12 meters (39 feet).

      • Navigate underwater.

      • Practice buoyancy control in real-world conditions.

      • Explore marine life.

      • Perform safety drills.

    • Your instructor will be right there, ensuring your safety and providing feedback.

  • Certification:

    • Upon successful completion of the program, you’ll receive your Scuba Diver certification.
