Standard PADI Courses
PADI Scuba Diver
The Scuba Diver is a subcourse within the Open Water Diver course. It is a limited certification for everybody who only wants to dive to a depth of max. 12m under the supervision of a certified divemaster, assistant instructor or instructor. It teaches student divers the fundamental knowledge and skills for diving but completes only 3 of the sections of the Open Water course. It is easy to upgrade your Scuba Diver to Open Water within 12 months.
PADI Open Water
The PADI Open Water Diver course teaches student divers the skills and knowledge, necessary to dive with a buddy independently of supervision. Depending on your prior knowledge (use the e-learning option if you want to win time in your holidays) you’ll start with a theoretical part that teaches you basic knowledge for diving. As soon as possible your dive instructor will take you to your first dive in shallow and calm water, where you can practice the skills you’ve just learned. After 9 more dives – the last five under open water conditions – and some studying over the surface, you can complete your Open Water Diver certification with a small quiz.
Welcome to the amazing world of diving!

During this course you’ll gain experience in handling special drift diving equipment, improve your buoyancy control, navigation and communication skills and learn about causes and effects of aquatic currents.
PADI Enriched Air Dive (Nitrox) (S)
This course is designed to qualify recreational divers to use enriched air (“NITROX”) for non-stop recreational diving. The program is one of the most popular among the PADI courses, because NITROX-Diving enables you to stay under water longer by giving you more no decompression dive time, especially on repetitive dives.
You’ll learn about techniques and equipment you need for diving with enriched air.
PADI Multilevel and Computer Dive (A or S)
This course is designed to be an introduction to multilevel diving and to help the student diver develop the necessary skills, knowledge and techniques.

You’ll learn how to adjust your equipment to be perfectly balanced in the water, to fine-tune your weight and to streamline to save air and move smoothly through the water. The benefits of a perfect buoyancy control are less use of air, the ability to glide weightless through the open water and less (or no) damage for the sensitive marine environment.
PADI Search & Recovery Diver (A or S)
This course is designed to help the student diver develop the necessary skills and knowledge for safe search and recovery diving. You’ll learn how to locate objects under water and bring them to the surface.
