The PADI Open Water Referral Course is great way for those who want to dive abroad. It allows you to complete all your theory and pool modules in your own time at home. This option then allows you to complete you open water dives at a PADI dive centre abroad.
The major benefit of this course is to complete your dive certification while still enjoying your holiday.
The Open Water Referral Course is split into two sections: theory and pool modules. The theory sections are based on home study allowing you to learn at your own pace. The modules are supported and reviewed by sessions with an instructor who can explain any areas in more detail. During the five pool modules you will learn the skills to dive safely. The Open Water dives are done at a PADI Dive Centre of your choosing at your destination.
