The course has three components: 1) Knowledge Development Sessions completed on line before the next component 2) Confined Water Dives where you'll learn the fundamentals of scuba diving (mask clearing etc), and 3) Open Water Evaluation, the most important and exciting part of the course where your new skills will be evaluated in the ocean.
This course is the key to a lifetime of marine explorations. Dive destinations around the globe, as well as those in your backyard, will then be yours for the taking.

What is included in the program: You will be supplied with all the diving equipment required. Only suitable and maintained equipment will be provided to all students as this not only improves their safety but will also improve their comfort and enjoyment in the water. All they will need to bring is their swimming attire.
Knowledge Development Session: Upon registration you'll receive the login and password for the online self-study component of this course.
Confined Water Session: The confined water session will take place at Nongsa Point & Resorts, Batam. During the sessions, fundamental skills of scuba diving that are required to keep a diver safe will be taught. Divers will also be introduced to all diving equipment needed during the course.
Even though the fees include all gear needed for the duration of the course, it is advisable that divers invest in their own mask, fins, snorkel and wetsuit prior to the confined water session. This is because students adapt faster using their own gear, as they feel more comfortable and relaxed during the training. Moreover, subsequent dives will require little or no adjustment to the equipment because they are already accustomed to their gear.
Open Water Evaluation Session: This is the most important and exciting part of the course. The open water training allows instructors to assess whether dive students are able to care for themselves and a diving buddy after they've completed the course. You will take part in 6 sessions in open water.
