Dive Course & Experience Program
PADI Open Water Diver Course (OW) gives you a lifetime diving ticket to the underwater world. We start an OW course everyday at 4:00 p.m. and we take maximum 6 students per instructor per course. We teach in English, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Spanish, German, French, Dutch, Italian, Japanese and Thai. There is some medical questionnaire that needs to be completed before start of the course. The OW course consists of 3 main parts: Dive Theory, Shallow Water Skills and Open Water Dives.

The Dive Theory consists of a PADI manual with 5 Chapters, 5 VDOs and Knowledge reviews and a 3 Classroom sessions with your PADI Instructors. After the 5th Chapter there is a Final Exam with 50 questions, multiple choices. You need to score 75% or more. The system is well designed so after all the lectures you will find that you've acquired a lot of diving knowledge in a relatively short time.

The Water Work consists of Confined Water Training and 4 Open Water Dives.
The Confined Water Training is conducted either in a nice, calm and shallow area in the sea, or if the conditions are not too favorable in a pool. We prefer to do it in the ocean as you then get used to the saltwater environment straight away, and of course there are more interesting things to look at in the sea compared to in a swimming pool.
You have to complete 4 Open Water Training Dives after done all confined water training sessions. We make 2 training dives per day with your maximum depth not exceed 12 meters (Dive 1+2) and 18 meters (Dive 3+4).

  Congratulations, you are a diver. When you finished your Open Water course there will be 2 options. Either you go to do the PADI Advanced Open Water Course or do some Fun Dives with special price for our ex-student.

PADI Advanced Open Water Course (AOW) The AOW course consists of 5 Specialty Dives. There are 2 Core Dives which you must do, they are Navigation dive and Deep dive (30 meters) and this means that apart from the Navigation and the Deep dive you can choose 3 Elective adventure dives. The Night dive is no longer a core dive, but we strongly recommend that you do this night dive. Multilevel dive is a very good experience, you learn how to plan your dive in different depth levels so that you can get a longer time under water. This is a technique used all the time when you go deeper than 18-20 meters.
Other options include Peek Performance Buoyancy, Naturalist, Underwater Photography and many more. You can look at the manual and choose which ones you want to do once you get here.
It's a good idea to do it straight after the PADI Open Water Diver course, because you can get more different dives experience and a 10% discount on the Advanced Course with the same PADI Instructors. It's only 2 days for 5 Adventure Dives.

  Advanced Open Water Course Options
 
2 Required Core Dives:
Navigation Learn how to navigate underwater like the professionals.
Deep Change your max depth to 30m and have a wider choice of dive locations.
 
Choose any 3 Elective Dives:
Peak Performance Buoyancy
Get better control and improve your dive skills.
Naturalist Have fun and learn how to find and identify different aquatic life.
Night Dive Try another type of diving – see different fish and have a completely unique experience.
Multilevel Learn how to plan longer dives and maximize your bottom time.
Photography (+1200b) Don’t just tell people what you have seen – show them!
Diver Propulsion Vehicle (+1500b) It’s not just for James Bond anymore now you can try it too.
  If you have done the Advanced Course and you would like to have a proof of CPR training, you will need to do the Emergency First Responder Course.

PADI Emergency First Responder Course (EFR) This course is non-diving certification course. You will learn the basics of first aid and how to give first aid in emergency situation. Start by showing you a video and then we do scenario based practical training. You’ll learn how to deal with a first response to a medical emergency. Everything from allergies, snake bites, electrocution, burns and the diving related injuries. A large part of the course trains you to be confident and proficient in C.P.R (cardio pulmonary resuscitation).This EFR course is one day intensive first aid course where we teach you and it is prerequisite for the Rescue Diver Course. By being proficient in first aid it gives you a feeling of confidence that in any situation you will be able to respond and help others.

PADI Rescue Diver Course (RESC) This course is designed to bring divers who already have advanced skills to a level of competency where, in emergency situations, they would be able to intervene. The RESC course is a 3 days program during the course you will learn how to focus on other divers and not only yourself. You will make several different scenarios starting already on day one with dealing with a panicking diver or tired diver on the surface. You will be searching for a missing diver or an unconscious diver under water, bring the diver to the surface and give a rescue breathing at the same time as you ditch his/hers diving equipment and tow him/her to the boat or shore. You will use different techniques to bring the diver onto the boat or onto shore. After that you do the final scenario kind of put them all together. The Rescue course is a really serious fun course to do and you will feel much more confident as a diver after completing the course.

  PADI Divemaster Course (DM) About the DM course, when you enroll in this program, most of the time the reason is that you want to be able to get work as a Divemaster and maybe later on become an Instructor. As a Divemaster Trainee you will learn how to assist an instructor with students. You will assist also Open Water Course, Advanced Course and Rescue Course.

In the DM course, you have 8 Dive Theory Exams: Dive Planning, Dive Management and Control, Supervising Students in Training, Physics, Physiology, Equipment, Dive Tables and Skills and Environment. They are all multiple choice and you need to score 75 % to pass. Regarding the waterworks you need to do the following: 800 m. snorkel swim, 400 m. swim, 15 min. treading water, 100 m. tired diver tow and a Rescue Assessment. You also need to do Skill Demonstrations which we call 20 Skill Circuit.

The Divemaster jobs will mainly entail organize the dive trips, organize the dive boats, sort the equipment out for the customers, do boat briefings, make sure everything is working and safety on the dive boat, do dive briefings, leading divers under water or supervise from the boat, rinse diving equipment, make sure nothing is lost, prepare torches for night dives, maintain diving equipment etc. Easy Divers opinion is that a PADI Divemaster Course that just fulfills the standards is not going to make you an employable Divemaster.

Therefore we designed an "Extended Divemaster Course". This course prepares you for all types of tasks that can be assigned to a Divemaster to do. You will have a wide knowledge of how about Dive Center Operation, not only be able to take people diving. The most important part i.e. leading dives, organizing the trips, ensure safety on the boat and in the water.

Apart from assisting your instructor with courses, you will also go out on the boats that take fun divers. To begin with you will observe and dive. When you dive, you will initially follow a group of divers that is lead by the Certified Divemaster. Once you feel confident, we'll let you lead divers with the Divemaster at the end of the group. This way you can get important feed back about your performance. When you and we feel that you are ready we will let you take diver on your own but small groups to start with. You will also learn to give boat briefings and will practice that in real life getting feed back from the Instructor and the Divemaster. We believe that our method using small steps at a time is a fantastic way to build up your confidence level and prepare you for your future employment. By the end of your time with us you will really be able to arrange and pull off a successful dive trip on your own.

If you calculate that price and divide with the number of dives you'll be able to do during your course it gets incredibly cheaper dives and on top of that you get a certification with which you can travel around the world and get employed in the most beautiful places. Diving is great fun and a great profession for sea lovers. A basic DM Course can be done in 2 weeks but it's not the best way to attain this professional level. We'd suggest you set aside at least 4 weeks and for the extended program couple of weeks more.
