Before the dive course
it is important to answer the medical questionnaire, and if the questionnaire indicates the requirement for a dive medical, then you must see a doctor and get him to approve you as Fit to dive. The dive medical must rule out any possible health concerns that could impede your safety while diving. Once you have received medical clearance from a dive doctor, you can begin the PADI eLearning program. This program will provide you with the dive course knowledge development portion of diving certificate course.
The PADI eLearning program consists of eight to ten hours of online learning, which you can complete at your own pace. After finishing the knowledge development portion of the dive course, you will be able to move on to the practical training component.
Practical PADI Open Water Course Training
The practical training portion of the scuba diving beginner course will take place over two days. You will meet at the dive shop on the first day and then head to the pool for training. During the pool session, you will be taught how to assemble your scuba equipment and all the dive skills you need for the underwater world.
After successfully completing your pool training, you'll be able to move on to open-water dives. After the pool session, we'll start with one ocean dive at a local dive site. We'll head out to one of several different dive sites (depending on conditions) on the second day and do three more ocean dives. During the dives, you will demonstrate the diving skills you learnt in the pool. After completing all four ocean dives, you will be a certified open-water diver.
To become a scuba diver, student divers need to be confident in the water and possess basic swimming abilities. In our Scuba Diving Course in Sydney, your instructor will have you do a 200-metre swim and 10-minute float to determine if you possess basic swimming capabilities. You should also be in good overall good health, particularly your respiratory and circulatory systems.
Before beginning scuba diving studies to get the PADI license, each student completes a brief Scuba Medical Questionnaire to identify any medical conditions that could make diving dangerous. If no medical issues apply to you, you sign the form and may begin your scuba diving lessons. If any of these conditions apply to you, as a safety precaution, your physician must assess the condition related to diving and sign a medical form confirming that you are fit to join our learn-to-dive Sydney course.
