HOW IS THE COURSE ORGANIZED?
STEP 1: “THE DIVING THEORY”
This step is essential to understand the notions that will be then practiced during the practical sessions. It includes 5 modules that cover all the subjects related to the pressure at depth, the diving equipment, the procedures and techniques, among other important topics.
You can choose between 3 different options:
IN THE DIVE CENTRE
We have 2 classrooms where you can watch the videos, and your instructor will guide you through the modules and clarify any doubts, and you will have to complete a series of quizzes and a final exam.
You collect the manual and DVD in the centre and watch the videos at home. Then you come to the classroom to complete the quizzes and final exam.
If you have limited time in Mallorca and wish to use it to learn the practical skills in the water, you can start the theory online at home before coming over here. For that purpose you should provide us with your basic personal details and pay the course fee in advance As soon as we receive that we will send you the code to access the theory online in your computer, tablet, or phone…
STEP 2: “POOL SESSIONS”
You will learn all the skills and techniques that will later apply during the open water dives. These sessions are done in a swimming pool or in the sea, in an area with similar conditions to a pool.
STEP 3: “OPEN WATER DIVES”
You will undertake 4 dives in the open water from a boat. The two first dives will be to a maximum of 12 meters of depth, and the 2 last to a maximum of 18 meters. You will apply all the knowledge acquired during the theory and the pool sessions.
