    I am interested in just doing shallow dives etc so the depth is not that important to me. I am aware that the certification allows you to go as deep as 18m/60ft but how deep do you have to go to acquire the qualification?
    Thanks.

    Went to about 15m on mine, however you are then qualified to 18m I think. It was a long time ago when I did my open water though.
