If you would like to get certified but don’t have enough time then the PADI Scuba Diver course is for you!
The PADI Scuba Diver course requires less time than the PADI Open Water Diver course and is upgradeable whenever you’re ready. The certification allows you to dive under professional supervision up to a maximum depth of 12 metres.
The course covers the first three out of five knowledge development in the PADI Open Water Diver manual, the first three out of five confined water or pool segments and the first two out of four open water training dives.
Because we have a Viking Scuba branch in Glenmarie, Shah Alam, Malaysia, you are able to complete your theory and pool sessions in the city before heading out to Dungun and Pulau Tenggol. This means that you will get more time to dive and relax when you’re on holiday. Just ask us about this option.
The PADI Scuba Diver course is divided into 3 sections:
You will be required to complete the ‘theory session’ before moving on to the ‘confined water or pool session’.
Learn about the physics, equipment, safety and dive environment.
Watch 3 informative videos that will enhance your understanding. You will then need to complete 3 short quizzes.
You will be required to complete the ‘confined water or pool session’ before moving on to ‘open water dives.
Learn how to assemble, use & care for your equipment.
Learn breathing techniques, buoyancy control and safety procedures in a safe & controlled environment with your instructor.
Now it’s time to dive in the sea!
You will be required to complete 2 ‘open water dives’ in the open sea.
Some key skills learned in the ‘confined water or pool session’ will be repeated during the open water dives so you know how & when to apply them.
A chance to experience & enjoy the amazing underwater world whilst being supervised by your instructor.
