Who should take this course?

If you’ve always wanted to take scuba diving lessons, experience unparalleled adventure and see the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. Get your scuba diving certification with the PADI Open Water Diver course – the world’s most popular and widely recognized scuba course. Millions of people have learned to scuba dive and gone on to discover the wonders of the aquatic world through this course.

To enroll in a PADI Open Water Diver course (or Junior Open Water Diver course), you must be 10 years old or older. You need adequate swimming skills and need to be in good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required.

The PADI Open Water course is broken into two phases.

Phase I
  • Knowledge development: theory work to help you understand the basic principles of scuba diving. This is reviewed in a final test in which you must score 75% or higher. Test can be retaken if needed.
  • Confined water dives: this is usually done in a pool or shallow water in the sea with the aim of teaching you basic scuba skills.
Phase II
  • Open Water Dives: You will complete four open water dives in which you demonstrate your skills.  These will be contucted in a natural environment. More information
Divers' Supply Indy offers these phases seperatly allowing for a more flexable schedule and additional cost savings for referrals.

I just finished my Open Water cert & I can't say enough about the high quality of the instructors & course. My instructors (Don & Ken)were the best. They were very informative, very patient & worked with us until we had all mastered our skills. The course was fun & you can tell these guys LOVE teaching. Possibly the most important part: they made the whole course FUN! I would recommend DSI for all your diving needs.

I just took my Open Water Scuba Certification on 11-11-13, great instructors and a great experience. The other students I was in class with would say the same. I look forward to continuing my Scuba education with Divers Supply Indy and would recommend this place to everyone.

Great Instructors and Friendly Staff
They have some of the most friendly and knowledgeable staff I've worked with. You truly feel that the people of the store have the best interest of the customer in mind.

All their recommendations have worked quite well and were cheaper than what I had in mind before talking to them. They have a good assortment of the top brands and it is one of the very few places where I would rather go personally than try to find something on the Internet.
