  • Confined Water Dives to learn basic scuba skills,
  • Open Water Dives to review your skills and explore!

If you've participated in a Intro to Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full
Open Water Diver course certification.

Contact PHOENIX SCUBA to personalize the best study option for you!

PADI's Open Water Diver materials cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you'll read a description and watch a video demonstration. Then you'll jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor.

REFUND POLICY: Please understand that when you start class by either receiving your materials (book packet) or online academics there is no refund of tuition after that point. Please be sure you are willing to make this commitment before you pay for class.
