What is a PADI Certification?
Silent World offers a wide range of PADI courses and certifications. When someone receives a paddy course certification, it indicates that they enrolled in a diving course, completed all the course objectives, gained the knowledge and skills of scuba diving, and can now explore the wonders of the sea on their own. Below we’ll discuss many of the courses Silent World has to offer.
Beginner courses are the best way to get your foot in the door and discover if scuba diving is something you’ll want to continue to learn.
We offer a wide selection of courses, like discover scuba, open water, refresher course, advanced open water, and rescue diver.
Coral Reef Conservation Courses
If you are as dedicated as we are to making the ocean a better place, join us at Silent World to get certified in the three AWARE conservation courses we offer. Next time you go diving, be “aware” and know how to operate in, and respect the ocean that is home to infinite possibilities of life.
Advanced and Specialty Courses
There’s more to diving than just swimming and exploring. Our advanced and specialty courses offer training on everything from wreck diving to enriched air training, to underwater photography. These advanced courses can be a fun hobby to develop and can also help you gain skills to work in a career in this sort of field. Whatever the reason, we make these courses easy and fun to learn.
First Aid & Emergency Courses
Accidents happen all the time and usually at times when you’d least expect it. It’s important to understand the basics of first aid so you can be ready should an emergency were to arise.
DAN basic life support offers in-person CPR and first aid training. According to the American Heart Association, if CPR is performed after an accident, it can triple the chances of the victim’s survival. Completion of this course will provide you with a card indicating you have been trained in basic life support.
