  • Print

The Open Water course, with PADI or SSI, is split into theory sessions (held in the shop on Wednesday evenings, 7:00 - 9:00pm), and pool sessions (held on the corresponding Saturday evenings at Clifton College Pool, 6:45 - 9:30pm).

The qualifying Open Water Dives take place after the theory and pool sessions are completed. These are normally on the two Sundays following the last pool session, but this is obviously dependent on the weather.

The dates listed below are the start dates and are applicable for both the PADI and SSI Open Water Diver courses.All PADI Open Water course theory starts on the previous Wednesday in the classroom. These sessions are not required for SSI as App based learning gives total flexibility.
