The Open Water course is the first dive course to get a real license. The course takes about four days and starts almost immediately in the water. You learn how to use the equipment and do a few simple exercises. After the first pool session and basic information on dive safety, we take you to make your first dive.
Then the pace is up to you, because after that you must read the fluently written Open Water manual and take the tests after each chapter. You will also be required to take some multiple choice tests and an exam which you will discuss afterward with your instructor, to make sure that you have understood all important information. With your instructor, you will then plan your remaining pool dives and three open water dives.
