Course Content

Here in Moalboal, Cebu, Philippines we will take you gradually through the concepts building in what you have learned and ensuring practical application consolidates your learning. You will learn the theoretical components through watching a series of 6 instructional videos which in total last around 2 hours. The Open Water Manual accompanies the course videos and your instructor will use it to review and expand on diving science and concepts. You will complete study guides as you progress through the course to consolidate your learning. A final exam waits at the end and answering the multiple choice test, will show you just how much you have learned. In the water, we start you in very shallow water, shallow enough so that you can comfortably stand if you wish. Here we start to teach you all the skills and techniques that you will need on every dive and also emergency procedures that we hope you will never need.
