If you've always wanted to learn how to scuba dive, discover new adventures or simply see the wonderful world beneath the waves, this is where it starts. The Open Water Scuba Diver course is the world's most popular scuba course, and has introduced millions of people to the adventurous diving lifestyle.

What You Learn

The Academics and Pool Training for the Open Water Scuba Diver Training consists of two parts of becoming  Open Water Diver and is the FIRST step in learning how to dive:

  • Blended Knowledge Development  Classroom and eLearning to help you understand basic principles of scuba diving, and
  • Pool Training Dives (Confined Water) to learn basic scuba skills.

To get your certification, you will need to complete four additional Open Water Diver certification dives.

Prerequisites

To enroll in the Open Water Diver course, you must:

  • Have guardian’s active participation if 10-12 years of age
  • Be accompanied by a parent/guardian for all training if under age 16
  • Have written parent/guardian approval if under age 18 

The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is...well, just about all of it because learning to dive is incredible. You breathe underwater for the first time (something you'll never forget) and learn what you need to know to become a certified diver. During the training, you'll dive in a pool under the supervision of your Motor City Scuba Instructor.

The Scuba Gear You Use

In your Open Water Scuba Diver course with Motor CIty Scuba, you learn to use basic scuba gear including a dive computer, and standard accessories.
