If you’ve tried diving through a Discover Scuba Diving experience or resort course, the skills you learned may be credited towards a portion of the full PADI Open Water Diver course certification.

The first weekend consists of classroom review and pool fun, and then you do your four open water dives another weekend off the beach or a boat.
