Open Water Referral
The referral consists of the theory and skills development sections of the Open Water course.
Knowledge development: Following some home study and instructor guided classroom sessions you will learn the fundamental theory of scuba diving, ready for you to put into practice in the water.
Confined water dives: This is the in water skills development section of the course. In shallow water, you will learn all the skills required to enable you to venture safely and confidently into your open water dives.
The referral takes on average two days. It is usually run on the first weekend of the month but bespoke sessions can be arranged.
The entirety of the course takes place at our purpose built facility at Wraysbury Dive Centre. We have our own classroom and purpose built confined water area in our lake. This means that we do not have to rely on swimming pools.
Cost depends on when you want to complete the course. If you join us on the first weekend of the month you only pay £330. For £460, you get to choose the dates (subject to availability).
Diver training courses are meant to be fun but like any form of learning you’ll need to invest some time and effort reading and studying before we can get you into the water. It is therefore extremely important you complete you homework before your practical course. Our learning agreement and cancellation policy explains what is required and what to do should you need to postpone or cancel your course.
Come down to the dive centre to collect your homework, see our facilities and meet the team. Alternatively you can complete the homework online using the PADI E-learning system and email us for your booking.
