Open Water Scuba Training

The Beginner's Scuba Certification Program

The Open Water Premier Scuba Training Program

Premier scuba training refers to high-quality, personalized instruction aimed at providing students with an exceptional learning experience and preparing them to become skilled, confident divers.

In This Premier Scuba Training beginners program you will complete the PADI® Open Water Diver Course which is the first scuba certification level.

You will learn to scuba dive in Edmonton, Alberta from Larry Wedgewood, a highly-trained PADI Master Instructor and Instructor Trainer, who will train and coach you in a relaxed, supportive learning environment.

Micro Scuba Training and Coaching Approach

Micro teaching or training is an integral part of the Premier Scuba Training concept  in micro teaching only a few people are trained at a time. It's  designed for individualized attention to maximize diver fun, experience and safety while attaining high knowledge retention, diver skills, and confidence.

Larry Wedgewood's Premier Scuba Training program typically averages two (2) divers. 

For family or friend groups that want to learn together, this can be increased to a maximum of 4 training divers which will include more pool training time.

Diver Training

Through PADI Open Water Knowledge Development and instruction from Larry, will you learn about scuba diving principles, dive terminology, important scuba skills like buoyancy control, but most importantly you will have plenty of time to dive, get personized coaching, become comfortable and confident under the water, right here in Edmonton.

Upon completion of your pool training and when you're ready, you will make a minimum of four dives in an open water environment (ocean, or lake) with your instructor supporting you on each dive.

The 4 open water dives can be made locally in the Edmonton area during spring, summer or fall or abroad at any PADI Dive Centre or with any PADI independent Dive Instructor in over 180 Countries within 12 months to complete your Open water certification.

By the end of the course, you'll have the skills and knowledge to dive at home or abroad and if you're interested, be an ambassador for the the Aquatic Environment.
