Complete your Open Water training and certification dives
Once I successfully demonstrate these diving skills and complete the four required dives my instructor will advise the training agency to issue a C-Card in my name

After you successfully complete the book and pool work, you then get a referral to do your open water dives. These are usually done in a lake, quarry or ocean. You typically do these dives over the course of 2 days. Scuba diving certification usually requires 4 or 5 successful open water dives.
