The course usually runs across three and a half days but if you have completed your theory before you get here it will reduce your attendance over this time dramatically.

You will watch video clips that introduce the world of scuba and undertake your knowledge development on your tablet before you get here. This will minimize your time in the classroom and make for a more relaxing schedule. Don’t worry though, you will have review time with your instructor so that you can go over any concepts you would like more explanation on.
As the course is performance based and not time based we do recommend that divers still allow 3 and a half days and join the water work over a normal course schedule. This then gives you extra time should you need it to complete and master the skills required. However we can conduct the course over 2 and half days continuously should you be short on time.
In the Touch format this product is available on all iOS and Android tablets and has short video clips integrated, along with interactive images.
