About the course

The Open Water Course involves 3 parts:

1. Theory

With the ease of SSI all learning is completed on your device whether it is a phone or tablet. If you prefer the old school way we have a rental book to feel the paper in your hands. Digital learning is perfect for those who wish to have fun and user-friendly online training before you arrive in Koh Phangan, and for those who want to protect your valuable time on vacation. Both the SSI manuals and Online training program are designed so that the student can learn the academics at their own pace whenever it’s convenient.

2. Confined Water Training

The confined water training is what makes us different than all the others. We train in real life conditions right out the front of the shop in Haad yao. With the sandy beach surrounding the island this offers shallow pool like water, and therefore a practical and safe place for your confined water training. Here, you will be able to practice crucial scuba skills under the supervision of our experienced and friendly instructors. Learn a number of skills which will benefit your comfort level, buoyancy and provide you with the ultimate skill set to be able to dive anywhere in the world. The confined water training will happen on the first water day of the course. And the best thing is being immersed with the fishes.

3. Open Water Dives

Four (4) Open Water Dives are required to complete your Open Water Course in Koh Phangan and if your lucky at Sail Rock to dive with a Whale Shark.

On the successful completion of your open water training dives and passing a theoretical exam, you will become a Certified Diver. The SSI Open Water Diver certification is ISO certified and is recognised worldwide so your diving experiences will be limitless. Even if you complete your Open Water training with SSI you can still dive at other organisation dive centres worldwide and even switch your education provider depending on which route you choose.
