Here’s how to get started

Get Certified
______________

All divers have to be qualified as you need a specific set of skills and knowledge in order to stay safe in the water. 

Choose the agency you want to train with; PADI is one of the largest agencies and you’ll find in most regions worldwide. If you’re interested in taking  a technical route into diving, GUE is a great option. RAID offers a complete range of online diver academic programs with an emphasis on technology-led learning. There are many agencies which are more locally active, for example in the UK, BSAC (the diving governing body) is responsible for the country’s club diving, but its qualifications are recognised all over the world. CMAS, originally a French agency is also recognised worldwide. Other International agencies include SDI/TDI whose technical diving qualifications in particular are world renowned, and SSI who pioneered digital learning and are arguably the second largest training agency in the world. 

Regardless of who you choose, most agencies offer similar entry-level courses including theory, confined water (pool) and open water (ocean, lake etc), which you can normally complete in 3-4 days.

Do I Need Kit?
______________

This is completely up to you as an individual. Some dive shops will provide you with everything you need for your training and you don’t need to invest in anything upfront, just pay for hire. Some people prefer to have some of their own kit as this means you train with the same kit that you’ll then carry on diving with. 

Having your own garments is often the best way to feel comfortable; wetsuits that are hired aren’t guaranteed to be the best size for you and can cause chaffing if ill-fitting. If you are learning abroad something like the Thermocline is a great option to take as it rolls up small and won’t get damaged. 

Your own hood, gloves and boots are relatively low investment pieces that will also go a long way to providing comfort.

In terms of hardware, you may already own a mask and fins for snorkelling which will be adequate for diving too, these are nice to have as your own so you know they fit well and don’t irritate your skin. 

Items such as dive computers, BCD’s, regulators, weight belts and cylinders are great to build into your dive kit over time.

Dry or Wet?
______________

If you’re lucky enough to live in or be off to the tropics on your holidays, this is a great place to learn as the water is warm enough that you can just don a wetsuit and won’t become cold quickly. 

If however you’re in the northern hemisphere and it isn’t the height of summer, you’ll probably find more enjoyment learning in a drysuit. As you wear thermals underneath the totally water-tight suit, it keeps you warm and dry in cooler climates so you’ll stay comfortable and be able to concentrate on your new skills. Ask your local dive shop what they can provide to hire.
