Full PADI Open Water Course – 2 weekends
The full PADI Open Water Course is conducted over two weekends. The first step is to contact 2DiVE4 to book onto your PADI Open Water Course and select your desired dates. 2DiVE4 will then send out your PADI Open Water Crew Pack containing the home study materials for you to get studying straight away.
Once you have completed the home study you attend the first chosen weekend of the course. The theory modules are conducted at 2DiVE4 Scuba School based in Bishops Stortford in Herts on Saturday, where one of the 2DiVE4 team will conduct the five theory modules. You will then get a chance to see all the dive gear you will be using during the course and get a chance to see the different brands and variations in scuba diving equipment available.
On Sunday we make our way to our pool location at Polam Pool in Bedford, where your 2DiVE4 diving instructor will conduct the confined water modules of the course. There are around 24 skills you need to master in the pool over the five pool dives. The five dives are conducted by 2DiVE4’s experienced and patient dive team.
So on the first weekend you would have successfully completed all the theory modules at 2DiVE4 Scuba School premises and pool modules of the course at our Hertfordhshire or Bedford dive pool location.
This will then leave your four open water qualifying dives to do with 2DiVE4 the following weekend at our training lake, Stoney Cove in Leicestershire. This location will give you the plenty of training platforms and great facilities to complete your training.
There are other locations available, however they are not as well set up. The four open water qualifying dives at our training lake, Stoney Cove will be conducted on the second weekend. You will conduct two dives each day and on the dives your diving instructor will ask you to repeat a selection of skills you already mastered in the pool the previous week. The only difference is that you will be doing it in a deeper environment.
2DiVE4 give you one on one supervision as standard on all four of your open water dives at Stoney Cove, so you will be well looked after. In our training lake you will find a sunken ship wrecks, airplanes and lots of other things, all put there for points of interest for the new diver. At the end of each dive you will complete a dive log in your own log supplied PADI log book. After the fourth dive we will be shaking your hand and saying “Congratulations, you are now a fully qualified PADI Open Water Diver”.
Option 3 – £399
PADI Open Water Referral Course – 1 weekend
The PADI Open Water Referral Course is conducted over one weekend at 2DiVE4 Scuba School and our Hertfordshire or Bedford training pool where we will conduct all five theory and pool modules of the course. We will then sign your paperwork for you to take to a PADI dive resort on holiday to complete the four open water dives.
The first step is to contact 2DiVE4 to book onto your PADI Open Water Referral Course and select your desired dates. 2DiVE4 will then send out your PADI Open Water Crew Pack containing the home study materials for you to get studying straight away.
