Unique ITDA Difference from other training agencies...

This unique ITDA Group International Training and Certification Program was designed and produced for those people who want to learn to dive safely in a resort environment and who do not want to take up their valuable vacation or holiday time reading books on dive theory and spending hours in the hotel pool playing with scuba equipment... We get you into the water in around 30 minutes... And learning skills rapidly...

The ITDA Scuba Open Water Diver Certification is a full Open Water Certification to dive to 20m/66ft. and recommended supervised diving up to ten (10) open water dives... But divers may dive unsupervised...

10 Dives experience is highly recommend, then unsupervised diving with a buddy of equal or higher experience level... or Why not go directly into our Advanced Open Water Diver Program...

ITDA Scuba Open-Water Diverdiver

The Open Water Scuba training program has a lot of very flexible options depending on how much time you have available and what level of diving certification you want to achieve in the diveravailable time.

The most basic level can be achieved in just two days with 6 Open-Water dives, three (3) on each day, on day one you will enjoy a short safety briefing and lecture on basic diving skills required for safe diving.

Then you will have a shallow training session or a pool lesson, followed by a dive with training skills in the sea / open water to a depth of around 6-10m / 20 to 30ft. (Very safe for your first dive!)... Then you will attend another class / theory session and then: Lunch!

After lunch another brief class on equipment and how to best use it safely, followed by another training session and dive in the "Open water"... Then a class and then your last (3rd)dive for day one... By now you are really learning and practising a lot of newnemo skills and knowledge... And looking forward to day 2. Which follows a similar format to day one, with diving training and classes mixed together offering you the most fun, learning to dive safely...

We also have another option... You can learn the basics before you arrive at your resort see our "Club System", where you can start to learn at home... And save time and money! 

Many Instructors may prefer to make this program three days and less rushed, as with some students 2 dives a day maybe much more comfortable.

More Fun Open Water Diving!

Scuba is a lot about just having fun diving, but we must stress that there needs to be caution exercised as the marine environment for us, as humans requires us to use "Life Support Equipment", and to exercise caution over what we do and touch underwater...

As there may be hazards and minor dangers, and its our job to see that your experience is as safe as possible and that's why we operate higher safety standards for your protection.
