PADI Scuba Diver Course with Aussie Divers Patong Phuket Thailand

PADI Scuba Diver Course

Only have a couple of days spare and you would love to begin you scuba diving certification? The PADI Scuba Diver certification might just be for you.

This course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course, covering only the first three of five sections of knowledge development, the first three of five pool sessions, and the first two of four open water training dives, resulting in a limited certification.

Particularly if you expect to go scuba diving primarily in the company of a dive guide or if you have limited time to devote to scuba certification, consider becoming a PADI Scuba Diver.

This certification allows for ample dive experience and is a good warm-up for the PADI Open Water Diver course, if that’s your ultimate goal. PADI Scuba Divers are qualified to:

Dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet,

Obtain air fills, rent or purchase scuba equipment and participate in other diving activities as long as they have the required supervision,

Continue their dive training and complete PADI Open Water Diver certification and other courses such as the Project AWARE Specialty and PADI Equipment Specialist.

The Fun Part

The Scuba Diver certification opens the door on the underwater world for anyone who thinks that a course would take too long or be too difficult.

Upgrade to PADI Open Water Diver whenever you want! With less time than the Scuba Diver course takes, you can make the jump to PADI Open Water Diver certification and start scuba diving independently whenever time allows or you’re up for more.

What You Learn

All the basics of scuba diving through knowledge development, a set of scuba skills in the pool that you’ll use again during open water dives, and an appreciation for the underwater world that will keep you coming back for more bottom time every chance you get!

During the course you’ll cover material and practice skills related to topics such as:

Buoyancy skills including comfortable ascents and descents, and breathing underwater.
Staying warm underwater, streamlining your swimming skills and buddy diving techniques.
Diving environments and aquatic life you’re likely to encounter.
Preventing common problems underwater.
An introduction to boat diving.

The Scuba Gear You Use

You will use all the basic scuba gear and some of it may be included with your course. You may want to invest in your own mask, snorkel and fins since these personal items are a lot more fun to use when they fit properly. A buoyancy control device (BCD), which is a jacket that holds your scuba tank, a scuba regulator that delivers air, a weight system and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply will also be used. You might also wear a scuba wetsuit. In Phuket we have 3mm shortie wetsuits which is more than enough for the lovely warm 29 degree Celsius waters.

Ask Aussie Divers Phuket scuba equipment you’ll use. Most of our major equipment to the highly rated Scubapro equipment.

The Learning Materials You Need

PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the Scuba Diver. While eLearning is the most convenient option, you may also choose a book and video on DVD package or a multimedia DVD-ROM.

PADI’s Scuba Diver materials provide a comprehensive overview of basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you’ll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you’ll jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor. Once you’re a certified diver, use the course materials as a reference guide for future diving adventures.

The Prerequisites For This Course

To take this course, you must be:

15 years old (or 10 years old for Junior Scuba Diver certification)

**Please note that you will need to know how to float/tread water for 10 minutes. This is mandatory to pass the course**

The best place in Phuket to get your PADI certification is with Aussie Divers Phuket in Patong.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there [...]
