Professional Association of Diving Instructors.
What's included in this experience?
This is a full certification package which includes classroom, swimming pool practice, and open water training dives. The textbook, logbook, air fills and all required rental equipment for the class are also included. 
Where will I do the open water dives?

The final phase required for certification is the open water training dives. Open water means anything outside of a pool, for example quarries, lakes or the ocean. Dives are typically held at Circleville Twin Quarries. You may also complete the open water training dives with a referral at any PADI facility in the world. Referrals are issued after completing your classroom sessions and swimming pool practices.
