About Open Water Course

The Open Water Course has three main segments:


1. Academics:

SCUBA School! You will either do your academics online through PADI eLearning or with a book picked up from Columbus Scuba.


2. Confined Water:

Pool sessions/shallow water to introduce you to breathing underwater and teach you the skills you will need in order to dive safely.


3. Open Water Check Out Dives:

The final step to your Open Water Certification. You will complete 4 dives with an instructor and show you’re capable of doing the skills you learned in the pool out in the open water.
