Your knowledge will be evaluated through short quizzes and a final exam. You will be provided you with your own good quality and fully serviced equipment to use throughout the course.
You will have 2 pool sessions and that’s where the fun starts!! You’ll set up your own equipment and then you’ll first discover the feeling of breathing underwater. In a low stress environment you’ll practice the skills and techniques that you’ll use in the open water. On the final 2 days you will conduct your open water dives at the world-renowned Poor Knights Islands. You will complete two dives per day, the final days diving to a maximum of 18 metres.
