Open Water Diving Course

Steps 1 & 2

Knowledge Development & Confined Water Skill Development (pool)    

Underwater Cowboy is primarily teaching the PADI Open Water course by eLearning. If you would like an in-person class, you may schedule that  as a private class. Contact TDS directly for cost and scheduling.

Step 1, eLearning knowledge development, is completed online at your own pace.  When completed, you schedule a written exam and a weekend pool skill session to complete Step 2. Then, on to open water to finish your certification! 

Step 3 requires 4 Open Water dives to complete the certification. 

Now is the time to dive into the PADI Open Water Diver course, the most popular dive program in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense adventure with PADI, the dive company that sets the standards in the global diving community.
