This Program is designed to provide comprehensive training to those who wish to become SCUBA divers. Here we emphasize the skills and knowledge needed to develop a safer novice diver and to develop a sense of confidence and responsibility in those joining the adventures of underwater discovery. The purpose of this program is to qualify a diver to participate in diving activities where appropriate Diver Support is always available at the surface, where in-water decompression stops are not required, and under conditions that are equal or better than the conditions where they were trained.


How deep can you dive with the IANTD Open Water Diver Program?

This Program qualifies a diver to dive to a maximum depth of 60 fsw (18 msw) in open water.


What do you need to enroll in this program?

A minimum of 12 years of age or higher.
