Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater? If you want to find out but aren’t quite ready to take the plunge into a certification course, Discover Scuba Diving will let you try scuba right here in Telford Shropshire to see if you like it.
What do I learn?
During the Discover Scuba Diving experience you’ll learn how to use scuba equipment in shallow water in our pool, and get a quick and easy
introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater World. You will:
– Learn what wearing scuba equipment feels like and how easy it is to move around underwater while wearing it
– Find out what it’s like to breathe underwater and learn whether you can be comfortable there
– Learn some basic skills and safety rules that will carry over to your full scuba certification course when you take the next step
What does it involve?
The Discover Scuba Diving session lasts approximately thirty minutes, during which you will learn the basics that you need to dive under the direct supervision of a PADI Professional. You do not need any prior experience to take part in the Discover Scuba Diving experience. You just need to be at least 10 years old, and in good health.
Once you have booked in with Immerse School of Diving you will need to complete a few forms and bring these to your pool session which will be held in Telford, Shropshire – a Safe Diving Practices Statement of Understanding; a Liability Release and Assumption of Risk Agreement; and a Medical Statement. Please ensure you read these in full before your session. If you answer “yes” to any question on the Medical Statement you will need medical clearance before you can dive – see our FAQs for further information.
On arrival we will introduce you to any other participants who are joining your session, and conduct a short briefing so that you understand the basics of diving and the equipment you will be using. You will need your normal swimming equipment, a towel, and a t-shirt is advised.
What is next?
Once you complete a Discover Scuba Diving program, you’ll want to check out the PADI Open Water Diver certification course which will teach you everything you need to know to become a scuba diver.
