Is there a required date to switch to the new open water materials? Nope! The switchover date = when our warehouse runs out of the “classic” Open Water materials. For details on adopting the new program, read this article which includes product information and links to a recorded webinar giving an overview of the changes.

You can also watch videos of the new Open Water skills demo’d by PADI Course Directors and their staff. Visit the PADI ProTV channel and click the red subscribe button to get future updates.
