PADI Open Water Diver Courses in East Timor
Wednesday, 07 August 2013
Itís been a busy few weeks here at Dive Timor Lorosae, with loads of brand new students wanting to learn to dive and find out just how amazing this country is under the water! Just check out our hall of fame!
So how does it work? How can you get certified to scuba dive?
First of all you can do the PADI Open Water Diver course ... this involves a combination of some theory, skills sessions in the pool and four dives in the ocean. And itís open to anyone who is 10 years or older.
Once youíre signed up here youíll get learning time in the DTL classroom, watching a few videos and going through all the basic theory you need to become a scuba diver.
Then itís time to jump in our purpose-built dive pool to try out the kit and learn some skills Ė this is the really fun part and involves a ton of practice so you feel well prepared before venturing in the ocean.
After this youíll be ready for the Big AdventureÖ We have several great local dive sites close to DTL where we conduct our Open Water dives , so you wonít just be seeing one place. Our instructors will take you through all the swimming and skills you need to do to get that certification under your belt.
DTL are really proud to be able to offer small class sizes so you can learn at a pace that suits you, and we have lots of flexibility so we can work around your schedule. So once you have completed this, the ocean is yours to explore!
