We both are PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) and so we are allowed to teach all the PADI courses to Divemaster. We also are EFR and CFC Instructor (Emergency First Response and Care for Children), so we are allowed to teach EFR and CFC courses.
Here you find a short overview of the PADI courses offered:
Discover Scuba Diving
For most people the adventure of scubadiving starts with a Discover Scuba Divingprogram. We also call it an introductiondive/trydive. You get the possibility to try scubadiving, before you really do a course. Always a good start.
Open Water Diver
The Open Water Diver course teaches you to be an independent diver. We teach you to go scubadiving, to a maximum depth of 18 meters, of course always together with a buddy. The Open Water Diver course (OWD) is the most given and best known course PADI has. There are different ways to follow and finish the course.
Junior Open Water Diver
For youngsters in the age from 10 to 14 years, there is a possibility to follow the Junior Open Water Diver course.
There is also a possibility to do the Scuba Diver course. With this certificate you can not dive independent, but always under the guidance of an (assistant) instructor or Divemaster. This course is the first half of the Open Water Diver course. It allows you to dive to a maximum depth of 12 meters, and it is a course very suitable for people with little time. You will get a certificate, and with this certificate you can take the next step to Open Water Diver, for example in your next holiday.
Advanced Open Water Diver
After the Open Water Diver course, you can go on for your Advanced Open Water Diver Diver (AOWD). You really learn a lot in this course and the course is set to your wishes. The course contains 5 dives, of which 2 required (deep diving and underwater navigation). You can also, separately from the other dives, make all of the dives required for the AOWD. This is called: Adventure Dives.
EFR (Emergency First Response) and CFC (Care For Children)
The EFR course is the only nondive related course. This course is for everyone. It is a course that teaches you primary and secundary care. Also the CFC course is for everyone, and you do not dive. It is like the EFR course, but than specially made for emergency situations where children are involved.
Rescue Diver en Master Scuba Diver
After the AOWD course can you go on for Rescue Diver and Master Scuba Diver, if you do not necessarily want to work as a professional diver, but you want to learn a lot about diving.
Read more about Rescue diver here, and about Master Scuba diver here.
After your Rescue Diver you can also become Divemaster. Divemaster is the first step of the professional level of PADI. In this course you will go into the diving theory and skills and prepares yourself to become an instructor. With this certificate you will be able to assist during courses and independently guide dives.
We are also allowed to give the next Specialties:
- Peak Performance Buoyancy (PPB)
