Becoming a certifed diver is as easy!

Learning to scuba dive requires both theoretical knowledge and practical training. Here are the general steps to get started:

  1. Find a reputable scuba diving center: See? Step one is already done. AquaSub is a PADI 5 Star Training Centre and we can get you started right away!

  2. Sign up for a scuba diving course: Enroll in a scuba diving course offered by the diving center. The course will cover the basic theory and skills needed to dive safely.

  3. Complete the theory portion: Complete the theory portion of the course, which may include reading materials, videos, and quizzes. You may also have to attend classroom sessions or complete online training.

  4. Practice in confined water: Once you have completed the theory portion, you will move on to practicing in confined water, such as a pool. This will help you develop basic scuba skills, such as how to use the equipment and breathe underwater.

  5. Dive in open water: After completing the confined water sessions, you will move on to open water dives. You will put your new skills into practice and explore the underwater world.

  6. Get certified: Once you have completed the course and open water dives, you will receive a scuba diving certification that allows you to dive to a certain depth, depending on your training level.

Remember, we always dive with a buddy so scuba is a GREAT social sport for everyone. Scuba diving can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it is important to take it seriously and always prioritize safety.

We all have a hidden adventurer buried inside us. If your inner explorer has always wanted to sink gently beneath the waves to explorer the world beneath the surface, Aquasub can help get you there with PADI Scuba Diver Training Courses!

There are three primary courses in the diver training ladder that when combined develope divers in to well rounded, experienced, safe divers.

  1. PADI Open Water Diver
