Why PADI Scuba Diver?
The PADI Scuba Diver program is a pre-entry level certification that is perfect for vacationers in Fiji with limited time or people who only plan to dive a couple times a year during holidays and vacation.
As a subprogram of the PADI Open Water Diver program, thePADI Scuba Diver rating allows you to get certified quickly and easily by minimizing time constraints.
With the PADI Scuba Diver certification you can dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor, Instructor or higher professional on your next vacation or dive trip.
What do you need to start?
Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Scuba Divercertification. If you are between 12 and 14 or have a child between these ages, there is a PADI Junior Scuba Diver program available.
What will you do?
Throughout the course, you’ll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by completing pool dives, knowledge development sessions and by making two open water dives.
How long will it take?
PADI programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you.
