If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderful world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The Open Water Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.

What You Learn

The Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

  • Knowledge Development to understand basic principles of scuba diving,
  • Confined Water (POOL) Dives to learn basic scuba skills (We call it an Aquatic Simulator)
  • Open Water Dives at the lake to review your skills and explore!

If you've participated in a Intro to Scuba Diving experience or resort course in the last 12 months, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full Open Water Diver course certification.


To enroll in the Open Diver course or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must be:

  • 10 years or older

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

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 (Aquatic Simulator)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.
