PADI 4 Day Learn to Scuba Dive Course

If you don't have the time to do a 5 day course or would prefer a land based Learn to Dive course then this course is the ideal option for you.

Please note: this option is a joint operation between Pro Dive Cairns and TUSA dive (a separate company) and the course is not entirely operated by Pro Dive Cairns.

Day 1 and 2 are spent at our modern, purpose built training centre learning the theory and underwater skills of diving.

Days 3 and 4 are spent on one of TUSA Dives fast and modern day boats where you'll complete the 4 training dives required for your PADI Open Water certification. You'll return to your accommodation in Cairns each evening.

NOTE – This program is a product of joint operations of two different companies, therefore you will be working with different instructors throughout the course and will be with a different group of people for the Ocean training portion of the course. TUSA dive is a separate company to Pro Dive Cairns

Important Information For Learn to Dive Course Participants

Prior to commencing your Learn to Dive Course you are required to complete the self-assessment Entry Level Student Dive Medical Declaration. A positive response to any question means that there is a pre-existing condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must consult a medical practitioner preferably with experience in diving medicine to obtain a dive medical certificate that states that you are fit to undertake recreational diver training.

To avoid disappointment we suggest that you complete the Student Diver Medical Declaration and if necessary obtain a dive medical from a doctor prior to commencement. (Any costs associated in this process are payable direct to the doctor).

Important Note: Student Diver Medical Declaration and Dive Medical (if required) must be completed within 90 days of commencement of your learn to dive course.
