The PADI courses are very flexible, meaning you can start in one dive centre and finish in another. Maybe you don't fancy sitting in a classroom when you're on holiday and would rather do that part at home, or maybe you started a diving course on a different holiday but had to stop for some reason - if you come to us part way through a course it’s called a referral.

Most people do a ‘referral’ course when first learning to dive (Scuba Diver or Open Water Diver). You can split your course into sections to suit you and your time constraints. The most common option is to complete all your classroom and pool session in the UK. PADI is global ... so chose your destination any where in the world to complete your 4 Open Water Dives

Referral course also work the other way! If you started a course abroad and want to finish it here in the UK you can! To pick up the course where you left off all you need to do is bring your learning materials and a referral form, signed within the last 12 months, showing the parts of the course you have completed, we will then work out a schedule with you to complete the outstanding segments of your course.
