The PADI Open Water Diving Course is the most popular scuba diving certification course in the world. It is designed to give beginners the knowledge and skills they need to safely explore the underwater world. The course consists of three main parts: knowledge development, confined water dives, and open water dives.

During the knowledge development portion of the course, students learn about the basics of scuba diving, including dive equipment, safety procedures, and underwater communication. This can be done through a combination of online learning, classroom sessions, and self-study.

The confined water dives take place in a swimming pool or other confined body of water and allow students to practice and master essential diving skills, such as breathing underwater, equalizing pressure in the ears, and using buoyancy control to hover in the water.

The final part of the course consists of open water dives, where students demonstrate their skills and explore the underwater environment with their instructor. Upon completion of the course, students receive a PADI Open Water Diver certification, which enables them to dive anywhere in the world with a certified buddy to a maximum depth of 18 meters (60 feet).
