ITDA Scuba Open Water Diver+ (Plus)

This level is our First International Diving Certification for diving without supervision to ANSI/EN and ISO Standards. However we do recommend a minimum of 10 dives under supervision to gain the right level of experience to feel totally comfortable...

With this in mind we have created the Plus+ Program offering you up to 3 Specialist Level 1 Certifications, to have more fun, while gaining more vital  diving experience and getting 3 extra certifications...  Great for our card collectors and those wishing to upgrade / progress to higher levels...

flyingHave Even More Fun - Open Water Diving!

Scuba diving is mostly about having fun, but we must stress that there needs to be caution exercised as the marine environment for us, as human beings requires us to use "Life Support Equipment", SCUBA "Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus and to exercise caution over what we do and touch underwater...  Our Open Water Plus+ Program is much more!

As there may be hazards and minor dangers, and its our job to see that your experience is as safe as possible and that's why we operate higher safety standards for your protection.  See Our Standards Page for full details

About Scuba Open Water Plus+scuba_diver

Unique ITDA Difference from other training agencies...

This unique ITDA Group International Training and Certification Program was designed and produced for those people who want to learn to dive safely in a resort environment and who do not want to take up their valuable vacation or holiday time reading books on dive theory and spending hours in the hotel pool playing with scuba equipment... We get you into the water in around 30 minutes... And learning skills rapidly...

The ITDA Scuba Open Water Diver Certification is a full Open Water Certification to dive to 20m/66ft. and recommended supervised diving up to ten (10) open water dives... In order to gain the experience needed to be a safe competent diver, however ITDA certified divers may dive unsupervised...  The plus+ program is just simply adding more dives (Up to 3-4) with skills objectives on each dive... Making getting the plus certification even more fun. The basic Open Water program is the same as our "Scuba Open Water Diver"... But adding more dives and therefore more experience...

We also recommend that if you do NOT dive for a long period, you should be happy to take a short assessment dive under supervision before attempting to dive...rib
