The three core recreational PADI courses to take are:

  • The PADI Open Water Course is conducted over two weekends and is the entry level course that will give you your initial licence to dive anywhere around the world to the depth of 18 metres with another qualified diver. This course is taught with one on one supervision as standard on all of the open water dives.
  • PADI Advanced Open Water Course. This course is conducted over one weekend at an open water training location and is made up of 5 Adventure dives; generally Peak Performance Buoyancy, Multi Level, Navigation, Deep and Wreck. Once you’ve completed this two day course you will be certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver to dive down to a maximum depth of 30 metres.
  • PADI Rescue Diver Course. This course is the course every scuba diver should look to achieve. It just so happens to be the most fun and rewarding diving course that 2DiVE4 conduct and will teach you the rescue skills and techniques to use in a variety of diving scenarios. You need to have had recent first aid training to participate in this course and we can offer that with the Emergency First Response Course that can be conducted in half a day or an evening.

On top of these three core courses there are a variety of one and two day courses you can participate in. These are called ‘Specialty Courses’ where you can learn all types of diving skills like Dry Suit Diving, Wreck Diving, Night Diving etc.

The full list of Specialty courses are as follows:

If you get certified in all three core courses, plus 5 ‘Specialty Courses’ and build up your diving experience to 50 dives you can apply for your PADI Master Scuba Diver rating. This is the highest non professional diver level you can reach.

2DiVE4 offer a Master Scuba Diver package that offers you a package of courses at a discounted price for you to reach your Master Scuba Diver rating.


Become a Professional Diver

If you are looking to become a professional diver and would like to join the 2DiVE4 team then the first diving course to take is the PADI Divemaster Course. To participate in this course you need to have gained your PADI Rescue Diver certification.

The PADI Divemaster Course is conducted over a period of 6 months and contains many training modules that will turn you into an elite diver and a diver all student divers look up to.
