PADI Open Water Diver Referral Course

Open Water Diver Referral Course with Essex School of Diving, Colchester, Essex.

Cost £280

Course Prerequisites:

You need to be at least 12 years old, in reasonable health and capable of swimming 200 meters at a relaxed pace. You will also need to complete some PADI paperwork prior to the course.

The Open Water Diver Referral course is the first part of the PADI Open Water Diver Course. By completing this part of the PADI Open Water Diver Course, you will gain a signed and stamped Referral certificate valid for one year from end of course.

Your Referral Certificate may be taken on holiday with you in order to complete the second part of the PADI Open Water Diver Course and qualify in warmer waters if you so wish. Or, if you change your mind, you can continue with us and complete the second part (Qualifying Part) with us. It is your choice.

Many of our students opt to complete the Referral part of the PADI Open Water Diver course to avoid wasting valuable time on holiday, sitting in a hot classroom and doing homework in the evenings before they actually get in the sea and scuba dive.

A £100 deposit is required to book your place on this course. Please click Here for course price.

Aided with an explanatory DVD and your PADI crew pack along with our instructor led sessions, you will be fully briefed, be shown and gain confidence in your diving skills and be well prepared to complete the second part of your PADI Open Water Diver course.

All Confined Water pool training sessions take place on Saturday evenings at Leisure World in Colchester, Essex, commencing 18:45 hours, finishing around 20:30 hrs.

All Theory material and Diving equipment is included in our prices. There are no hidden extras in our courses!
