Open Water Diver
Discover the world of weightlessness and tranquillity and set off on new adventures.
The Open Water course is the basis for your diving career. You will learn the most important exercises that will make you dive safely and with a lot of fun.
From simple to more complex exercises, you will learn the ABCs of diving. From “How do I do it?” to “What do I do when?” you will become a safe and competent diver who will enjoy our wonderful sport for a long time.
The SSI Open Water course consists of theory, most of which you can learn online or on your mobile phone or tablet. At your own pace and time frame. We supplement the digital training with theory sessions where we can clarify further questions or deepen topics.
We have at least 3 – 4 sessions in our heated pool. A water temperature of 28 degrees in a pool designed for diving training makes the first steps easier.
Finally, 4 open water dives are scheduled. This can be in our reservoir or other lakes in the region. You can also finish the open water dives worldwide in another SSI dive centre of your choice.
Entitlements after the course:
With the successful completion of the SSI Open Water course you can go diving worldwide. Rent equipment and dive up to 18 meters as this is the experience of your training.
The depth limits are age dependent and also depend on local regulations.
On request we also offer PADI, CMAS or I.A.C. courses. Here the costs for the teaching material change.
Theory: You can study the digital teaching material at your own pace. All the details of the theory are explained very clearly. We deepen this knowledge together with you during one or more sessions with us.
Pool: In our water temperature of 28 degrees, we learn the basic exercises you will need later for open water dives. Exercises in handling the equipment, dealing with minor problems, but also emergency procedures are on the program. Here we practice so that you feel safe when we go out into the open water.
Open Water Dives: With our minibus, we drive together to the Upper Sure Lake here in Luxembourg or to the lakes in the region. This can be done during our training weekends or, after consultation with you and your instructor, it can be completely flexible, according to your schedule.
In total, the Open Water course requires a minimum of 4 Open Water dives to successfully complete the course. Here we apply the exercises you already know from the pool in a realistic diving environment. The first two dives are limited to 12 meters, while the last two may be made to a maximum depth of 18 meters.
The Open Water Dives can also be done in the form of referrals to other dive centres if you wish.
