Open Water Diver - Diving equipment

This course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle. The Open Water Diver course is structured in a way that measurable objectives are being studied from simple to more complex ones, so that students use the knowledge gained as they progress. Trying to learn something without mastery of the previous objectives can complicate and hinder the development and learning.

The course includes three sections: theory sessions (knowledge development), confined water training, and open water dives.

The theory seccions provides a basis with the for general principles, procedures, and information needed for all scuba divers. There are five sections, each of which is normally completed by undependet study using the provided learning materials. Students answer questions during reading of the manual, take knowledge tests after each section as well as a comprehensive final exam.

Training in confined water serves two purposes. Firstly, it establishes the basic skills necessary for all divers in a low-stress enviroment. Secondly, it reinforces and complements knowledge obtained during the theory seccions and enables the students to apply and practice skills they have learned in the course video and the course manual. Confined water seccions correspond to the five modules of the knowledge development section.

Open water dives complete the integration of the principles learned in the knowledge development section and skills obtained thought the confined water training, both are applied by the students in open water environments. By practicing the techniques learned through the confined water training, students continue mastery of these skills in open water.
