The PADI Open Water Referral course, is the first step in becoming a certified scuba diver. PADI is the most widely recognised and respected diving certification in the world.

The course covers the fundamentals of diving and safe diving practices (you will complete all academic requirements to become an Open Water Diver), demonstrating this knowledge by completing a multiple-choice exam at the end of the course. In the swimming pool, an instructor will take you through all of the confined water dive skills you will need to dive safely and independently.

At the end of the course your Referral Certificate (part of your Log Book) will be signed, this is valid for 12 months. You then have the choice of doing your Open Water qualifying dives here in the UK with us, or alternatively, go to any worldwide PADI Dive Centre. This certificate is proof that you have completed all theory and pool work and are therefore eligible to undertake the four qualifying dives.
