Overview of Our Sydney Openwater Scuba Course
Our Sydney-based Openwater scuba diving program combines online theory with practical pool and ocean dives. The course aims to train you for scuba diving up to 18 meters deep, leading to the globally recognized Openwater Scuba Diver certification.
Before the course begins, participants must complete 3-4 hours of online theory, followed by a theoretical exam. A swimming competency test is also required, including a 200-meter swim and 10-minute water tread, with no time limit and using any style. The initial practical diving skills are taught and practiced in a pool in Sydney.
The course progresses with four open water dives in the stunning Sydney ocean. These sessions reinforce pool-learned skills and introduce additional techniques, ensuring your proficiency as an Open Water scuba diver. After completing all theoretical and practical elements, your instructor will validate your log book and student record file, certifying you as a Scuba Diver. This certification is internationally recognized.
Participants must be fit for diving to enroll in the Openwater Course in Sydney, and a diving medical examination may be required.

Very professional, friendly, welcoming and good teaching styles. Great fun experience by Zenith Williams - 19-Jan-2024
The educators were fantastic. I've been lucky to dive at a few locations and finally doing the open water with ProDive was a great way to get practical education around concepts I had previously struggled with, and feel supported to ask questions and learn the best techniques for diving. Really wonderful experience and I can't wait to dive again with them soon. by Byron Wylder - 19-Jan-2024
