Full Face Mask Diver

The Course

Instead of asking yourself, “Why dive using a full face or integrated mask”, perhaps you should be asking: Why not? Sometimes conservativism can obscure advantages that would substantially improve our activities. We are resistant to change. Yet if we open our minds we realize something else exists beyond what we’ve become used to using or doing. Now you can extend your diving with a full face or integrated diving mask.

Interested in trying a Full Face Mask underwater?


Join one of our Try Full Face Mask Diving pool demonstrations.




Open Water Divers who are at least 15 years old, and with at least 10 logged dives after being certified, can enroll in the Full Face Mask Diver course.

The Learning


During a pool session and two scuba dives you’ll learn to:

  • Develop your practical knowledge of full face and integrated mask diving.

  • Dive with a full face and integrated diving mask.

  • Plan, organize, and make full face and integrated diving mask dives.

  • Handle problems that could occur while diving with a full face and integrated diving mask.

  • Improve your diving skills.

Also, the first dive of this course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask us about earning credit.

Important Medical Information


All student divers are required to complete the PADI/RSTC Medical Statement Participant Record form. If you can answer "YES" to one or more of the questions in the Divers Medical Questionnaire section of this form, then you are required to obtain a physician's release, without conditions or restrictions, before participating in any in-water component of the course. Please read the complete details and download the form here.


If you have a copy of this form signed by a physician within 12 months prior to the expected completion date of your course, and your medical history has not changed, then you may provide a copy of it to your instructor. Otherwise, you will need to complete a new form.
