Scuba diving courses are like work experience in the sea. There are scuba diving courses to suit all levels of experience and could take you all around the world, discovering new and exciting marine life and coral. First time diver courses usually run through the ‘dos and don’ts’ of diving, how to use your equipment and conduct dives strictly accompanied with trained instructors. Intermediate courses consist of more dives, each time going deeper and deeper into the ocean and experienced courses teach students how to conduct their own dives independently.
Many scuba diving courses use PADI qualified instructors. PADI stands for ‘The Professional Association of Diving Instructors’ and is the world’s largest recreational diving membership and diver training organisation. PADI courses range from ‘Discovering Scuba Diving’ to ‘Master Scuba Diver’ and the qualifications are recognised all over the world.
