Your PADI Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as your own first aid kit, which will be useful throughout your diving career.
How long will it take?
When you sign up you will be able to start immediately! You will be able to self study and revise what you’ve learned with our Instructor in each Knowledge Development session prior to each of your dives.
