Detailed Course Structure:
Knowledge Development Sessions:
Upon registration, you will receive online knowledge review for self-studying prior to the confined pool session. It will take approximately 6 to 8 hours over one week to self-study.
Prior to your weekend trip, you will have to:
- Complete all 5 knowledge reviews online. Paper examination will be done during the course.
You are also required to pass the following completed PADI forms to the instructor:
- PADI Liability Release and Assumption of Risk Agreement
- PADI Medical Form
- PADI Open Water Diver Course Record Form
- PADI Standard Safe Diving Practice
Confined Water Dives:
The Skills Development Sessions will take place at Nongsa Point Marina and Resort, Batam Indonesia on Friday (the day before your open water dives). During the sessions, fundamental skills of scuba diving that are required to keep a diver safe will be taught. Divers will also be introduced to all diving equipment needed during the course.
All you will need to bring is your swimming attire and towel and your instructor will provide the rest! Even though the fees include all gear needed for the duration of the course, it is advisable that divers invest in their personal mask, fins, snorkel and wetsuit prior to the confined water session. Reason being is that students adapt faster using their own personal gear as they will feel more comfortable and relaxed during the training. In addition, their next dive will require little or no adjustment to the equipment because they are already accustomed to their gear.
Confined session is included in the course price. If the student requires more confined sessions it will be charged at $125.00 per session per student.
