Becoming a diver with SSS Phuket:
To become a diver, you would need to get used to breathing and adapting to your surroundings underwater. You would realise that underwater, we perceive colours, light and sounds differently as compared to when we are on land. With the PADI Open Water course, you would also learn how to move on the surface of the water and underwater. That said, as a diver, it is very important to be respectful of the underwater marine life for sustainability and as well as to know one’s limits for reasons of safety as well.
Main diving techniques:
A certified PADI Open Water Diver would know how to prepare the equipment required for the dive. This includes looking for the right equipment and knowing how to adjust correctly for maximum comfort and of course safety. The PADI diver would also know how to use the dive instruments such as the dive computer, manometer and the compass. With your dive buddy, you would engage also in the buddy check before the dive, how to enter and exit correctly in and out of the water.
The PADI Open Water also covers the basic fundamentals of diving. This includes the equalizing of your ears, buoyancy ( inflation and deflation of your BCD), correct usage of the mask and the snorkel. You would also learn how to monitor and manage your air supply. Not forgetting the important gestures and signs for diving, because this would be the way you would communicate with your instructor and your dive buddy underwater.
With the PADI Open Water Diver Course, each individual would be able to progress at their own speed to ensure that they are well equipped with the knowledge , capacity and self confidence. The PADI instructor would be able to respond to all the questions that you may have. He/ She would be able to adapt to the learning needs of each of his/her student.
If you have already have your first dive experience with Discover Scuba Diving or another organisation, the exercises that you have learnt can be credited in one part of your PADI Open Water Course.
