We teach a total of 30 hours training program include:

 Theory, confined water sessions, and open water dives. At the end of the class our students are well trained with a good technique and have fun diving.



Theory: three independent lectures will bring the student to: The History of diving, diving equipment, physical aspects of the diving environment, physiology, pressure injuries, physiological problems from increased pressure, diving activities. 

Confined water sessions: The student will learn swimming basics, free diving and scuba diving skills in three different pool sessions. After practicing in the pool in a controlled environment the student will be comfortable to practice in open water.  


Open water dives: 4 to 6 dives to make sure the student is comfortable and get used to the open water environment.
