The PADI Open Water Course: Your First Step to Scuba Diving 
Ever wondered about life under the sea? Here’s your chance to find out for yourself. The PADI Open Water Course prepares you for your first underwater adventure, arming you with the necessary knowledge and skills you’ll need to dive safely and competently. Because you'll want to be at ease when you're immersed in the beauty of the ocean. Upon your successful completion of the course, you’ll be qualified to plan and conduct open water dives with a teammate – up to a maximum depth of 18 metres.
The course will:
1. Give you a theoretical and practical overview of key diving concepts.
2. Acquaint you with basic diving equipment as well as gear set-up and handling.
3. Equip you with essential open water diving skills such as safe descents and ascents, underwater breathing, movement, buddy communication and more.
4. Prepare you for underwater problem management (such as equipment malfunction or loss) via a series of drills practised during pool sessions
You will not only learn how to dive, you will also learn to be a better diver, to set a better example in protecting the corals.

Established in 1999, Livingseas is the only dive education centre in Singapore that offers the full range of PADI courses along with GUE Recreational and Technical classes. Apart from course-based curricula, they also offer workshops to introduce divers to various types of diving including scooter, double tank and dry suit diving. At Livingseas, safety is their priority so they continually upgrade their equipment knowledge, and are well attuned to developments in the international diving arena. Their love for diving goes beyond the sport – they also support conservation efforts and have established links with marine research groups and various organizations that spearhead environmental protection projects.

• My own experience
I got my open water certification with them and joined their dive trips several times. So, I pretty much familiar with their standard and service quality. They first started in Singapore then to Bali and now in Jakarta. They are also active in coral conservation which from what I know not many dive centre do so. You may want to read my experience attending the Open Water Course with Livingseas Jakarta and the coral planting with Living Seas in Seribu.

*Note: The course delivery in Jakarta and in Bali can be slightly different due to the facilities availability. For sure it won't affect in training you to be a better certified open water diver. ;)

• Wide-ranging expertise
Livingseas instructors are all active Global Underwater Explorers (an organization dedicated to more serious and challenging diving) with a passion for the sport. They teach what they know, and how they dive, so the students can look forward to tapping into their experience and know-how beyond recreational diving
