The 3 Steps to become an SDI Open Water Scuba Diver
Start your SDI Open Water Scuba Diver course and master all the important academic information online. You can complete this phase through self-study, at your own pace, in the convenience of your home or office. All eLearning courses work on mobile and tablet devices too.
For entry-level certification courses (as well as some continuing-education classes), the next step will be to complete your in-water skill-development training. This takes place in a swimming pool or similar body of confined water, under the supervision of an SDI Instructor.
The final step is to complete the required number of SDI open-water training dives under the supervision of your SDI Instructor. Here you will apply what you have learned during your academic and skill-development sessions, while learning practical lessons that can only be gained through real-world experience in open water.

On recommendation of a friend, we contacted Tillmann. It was important to us to have our first diving experience with an experienced instructor who also speaks our language. We were not disappointed. With a lot of patience and humor he explained to us how everything works and also took our son (15) the fear of open water. We also experienced dives in a cenote. For us it is clear that the next vacation will be a diving vacation.
On my first trip to Mexico with a good friend that was doing an underwater filming project, I was recommended to get my diving license with Tillmann. Excellent instructor, very friendly, competent and helpful. I was lucky enough to have private lessons and was extremely happy. I can definitely recommend Tillmann!
