WHAT WILL WE DO DURING THE OPEN WATER COURSE?

The course is divided into 2 blocks: a theoretical one, and a practical one. The theoretical part aims to instruct, in a didactic and fun way, all that is necessary to turn the participant into an autonomous diver. It consists of a manual of 5 modules, an explanatory DVD, and a final exam.

The practical part aims to develop the diving skills of the student through practice and exercise repetition. It consists of 5 confined water sessions, and 4 open water dives during which, skills and exercises will also be performed.

CONFINED WATER TRAINING:

The confined water training is divided into 5 pool sessions, which allow the practice of basic skills focused on the resolution of different situations which can take place underwater, and during a dive. The correct performance of the different skills is vital for the adequate progress of the student during training.

The duration of training in confined water will largely depend on how fast the student progresses throughout the sessions, and the instructor will be able to adapt the teaching technique to the needs of the student if necessary.

OPEN WATER TRAINING:

A total of 4 sea dives will be made. Before the end of the course, the student will have the opportunity to dive to a maximum depth of 18 meters. The skills learned during confined water training will be put into practice during the open water dives. The objective will be to enjoy the dives with the safety and confidence acquired throughout the course.

IMPORTANT!

The student will be able to choose between different options when completing the theoretical part of the course; the traditional method, or the digital one. Both encourage learning by using a self-taught methodology, and combine it with a strict instructor follow-up. The main difference between both options is that the TRADITIONAL METHOD implies having to study a manual, while the DIGITAL METHOD allows interactive and home study.

THERE ARE TWO DIGITAL VERSIONS AVAILABLE:1. E-LEARNING: it is an interactive system which allows the student to download the theoretical content of the course and complete it at his/her own pace from home. The system implements self-correction to ensure learning, and it only requires a computer and good Internet connection to use it. 2. TOUCH: it is an interactive system compatible with smartphones and tablets which requires a good Internet connection to download the course content, register dives using the ScubaEarth digital platform, and submit the knowledge reviews, questionnaires, and the final exam respectively.

The course includes:

  • Rental of complete dive equipment
  • Material and necessary teaching support
  • Dive insurance
  • Dive instruction
  • Ride to dive sites

It is suggested to bring:

  • Bathing costume
  • Towel
  • Comfortable footwear
