CMAS 1* course description


For more information on the CMAS 1* course, read the description below.

The CMAS 1* course is your introduction to the world of scuba diving. You will never forget the first time breathing underwater! It is an incredible feeling, unlike anything you have ever done. Becoming a CMAS 1* diver is a great adventure and a lot of fun! The course covers the following topics:

  • How to become a scuba diver
  • Introduction to diving physics, medicine and decompression
  • Understanding and using your dive equipment
  • Staying buoyant underwater
  • Planning your dives and going diving with your buddy
  • Diving in open water between 4 and 20 meters depth
  • Regulations and laws around diving
  • Environment and conservation

The CMAS 1* course is split into four sections. Theoryskills, freediving practice, and 5 dives in open water. Each section will teach you more about diving and help you become a skilled scuba diver.

Dive Theory

During the CMAS 1* course, you will learn to scuba dive.

Learn the scuba diving theory.

To go diving safely you need to understand the theory behind scuba diving. The theory classes cover everything you need to be ready for your in-water course sections.

  • The dive certification
  • Diving physics & medicine
  • Dive equipment
  • Planning your dives
  • Introduction to decompression
  • Legal questions & dive insurance

The theory class takes between 3-4 hours plus a final theory test. With our online course, you can learn at your own pace, whenever and wherever you want!

Practical Skills

In the skills section of the course, you put on your scuba gear for the first time!

Practice skills every diver needs to know.

If you have not done a Discover Scuba Diving course before, you will take your first breath underwater now!

The scuba skills always take place in a pool or confined water like a very shallow part of a lake or the sea. Your dive instructor will know the appropriate location. We will cover four parts:

  • Handling your own equipment
  • Working together with your buddy underwater
  • Handling emergencies
  • Improving your skills and buoyancy

Open Water Dives

It’s time to go diving! The CMAS 1* course includes 5 dives in open water.

Dive in open water.

Here you will apply the theory and the skills from the previous sections in practice. In these dives, you explore the underwater world down to a maximum of 20 meters. Your buddy and your dive instructor will be at your side at all times.

Your dive instructor will evaluate your diving skills during and after the course. If you passed the theory exam, the practical skills, and the open water dives you will be a certified CMAS 1*!

Congratulations!
