The program consists of:

The SSI Open Water Diver course consists of 3 modules: Theory, Pool and Open Water. The theory consists of 6 chapters. You will have access to our digital learning environment where you can get started with our interactive teaching materials. This way you can work through the theory at your own pace. If everything is clear, the multiple-choice exam can be taken in the Scublue shop and you are ready for the open water. *Would you rather take theory lessons with an instructor? You can schedule 4 hours of lessons with the instructor free of charge. 

At the same time as the theory, we also start the swimming pool lessons. The 5 swimming lessons cover all the practical matters you need to enter the water safely. You will work together with the instructor. As with all our courses, you determine the pace yourself. 

After completing the theory and the pool we go to the open water. In the Vinkeveense Plassen at Zandeiland 4 you will show what you have learned in the swimming pool. Of course there is also plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful underwater life and the many submerged diving objects.
