Choosing this option fulfills the requirements for your entire certification.
Please note : During the months of July and August our regular pool is being cleaned. The pool component of our open water courses will now be completed on one day only, a Sunday, and not over a full weekend at a different pool. Students will only need to make themselves available for a single Sunday afternoon for courses in July and August. The pool time is 2pm until 7pm at Cawthra Pool. The academic component for these courses will be Elearning (online) and will be provided at the same cost as a free upgrade by TSC during this period. Please call us in store if you need further clarification.
The Full Open Water Course includes the academic component and the in-pool scuba training where you will learn all the skills required for scuba certification. Students have the choice to complete the academic component of this course either in a classroom setting or online by choosing the eLearning option. The Full Course also includes the certification dives which take place in an open water environment close to Toronto. It is during the 4 Open Water certification dives where you will be tested on the skills you learned in the pool and issued your certification card on completion.
Please note the Full Course requires two weekends: one to complete your academic and pool training; and, a subsequent weekend to complete the certification dives. Please note that students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the outdoor dive site.
Students choosing Elearning will only need to attend the in-pool training on the weekend. The in-pool skills are scheduled at the same time regardless of how the academic component is delivered. Students who choose the eLearning option will need to purchase a logbook from TSC as PADI does not supply this item for the course.
