PREREQUISITES:

COMPUTER WITH INTERNET CONNECTION

 In order to complete the Knowledge Development you are required to have internet connection. The PADI Open Water eLearning is designed for computers/laptops and is compatible with Windows and OSX operating systems. If you prefer studying on a tablet device or smartphone, the Open Water Course Touch is the better solution for you.

MINIMUM AGE 10 YEARS

 To complete the PADI Open Water eLearning you need to be 10 years of age or older. Divers aged between 10 and 14 can earn the PADI Junior Open Water certification to a maximum depth of 12 metres for 10 and 11 year old kids and 18 metres for 12 to 14 year olds. For younger divers have a look at our youth programs.

TO BE ABLE TO SWIM

 200 meters without help or support from any flotation devices or swim 300m with mask, snorkel and fins. If you are not able to swim but want to become a certified diver, the PADI Scuba Diver is the way to go.

TO BE ABLE TO FLOAT

 Float or tread water for 10 minutes without help or support from any flotation devices.

NO HEALTH PROBLEMS

 Please read the Medical Questionnaire carefully. The purpose of this form is to find out if you should be examined by a doctor before participating in diver training. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must seek the advice of your physician prior to engaging in dive activities. As not all conditions can be cleared on Koh Tao we strongly recommend to see a physician prior to your arrival.
