The PADI Open Water Course and PADI Scuba Diver Course are designed to get new divers in the water, practicing important dive skills, and studying the fundamentals of scuba science. Both courses end with a PADI certification card that allows you to dive anywhere around the world. But there is one big difference between the two.
The PADI Open Water Course is the full entry-level certification course which allows divers to be certified for diving up to 18m or 60ft accompanied by a dive buddy or dive professional. The PADI Scuba Diver Course is halfway to a full Open Water certification and allows you to dive to 12m or 40ft ONLY with a dive professional.
So Whats The Point Of The Scuba Diver Course?
The Scuba Diver course is actually just the first half of the full Open Water course. To get the PADI Scuba Diver certification you must complete the first three chapters of the Open Water textbook, first three confined confined water dives, and first two open water dives. So people with short on time this is the best option.
Another reason people choose the Scuba Diver course is the depth limitation and requirement to dive with a professional. Let’s face it, humans aren’t built to live underwater so it’s normal to have some fear or apprehension when learning to dive. It is also a smart option for kids and teens so they can gain experience with a professional before graduating to the more independent Open Water level.
List of things you need to cover in order to become a PADI Opem Water Diver are listed below.
