Learn to SCUBA dive with this Level 1 SCUBA diving course and gain an internationally recognised qualification.

The RAID Open Water 20 Course is the first step to becoming a qualified SCUBA Diver and once you hold this SCUBA diving certification you can dive around the world to a maximum depth of 20m. During this course you will learn the basic theory behind SCUBA diving, practice and master essential underwater skills in our onsite pool before moving on to four dives in open water.

Course Structure & Requirements
The Open Water 20 Course is split into 3 sections: online theory, confined water skills and open water dives.

The SCUBA diving training runs on a Monday or Thursday evening at 18:30. Generally the course runs for 5-6 weeks with one chapter of theory and confined water skills completed each week. Upon completion of the theory and mastery of the confined water skills the final 4 open water dives are arranged for the weekend following the final session.

We also offer tailor made courses to fit your busy schedule.

The minimum age for this course is 12 years old and all students are subject to a medical questionnaire before the first session can be conducted.

Course Cost
£325 (includes Online Open Water 20 Manual, instruction, certification and equipment hire). We recommend that each diver has their own personal mask, snorkel, fins, boots and gloves prior to the open water weekend.
