LEARN TO DIVE

START DIVING THE WORLD IN 3 EASY STEPS

SDI makes it possible for you to complete all of the academic requirements for your entry-level scuba diver certification online. You can get started right now and when you are done, you will then complete your in-water skill-development sessions and final open-water training dives at a local SDI Dive Center close to home, or at a popular vacation destination. It’s that simple! Now, go dive the world with your SDI certification.

Two options are available with this course. We have a cheaper option that does not include your two final dives being conducted off of a boat in open water, then we have the second option to complete your final two dives off of a charter boat in some of WA's amazing waters, just off of our coastline.  

STEP 1

Get Smart

Start your SDI Open Water Scuba Diver course and master all the important academic information online or at DiveTub. You can complete this phase through self-study, at your own pace, in the convenience of your home or office.  All eLearning courses work on mobile and tablet devices too.

STEP 2

Get Wet

For entry-level certification courses (as well as some continuing-education classes), the next step will be to complete your in-water skill-development training. This takes place in a swimming pool or similar body of confined water, under the supervision of a Dive Peth SDI Instructor.

STEP 3

Go Diving

The final step is to complete the required number of SDI open-water training dives under the supervision of your Dive Perth SDI Instructor. Here you will apply what you have learned during your academic and skill-development sessions, while learning practical lessons that can only be gained through real-world experience in open water.
