So you are thinking about getting your Scuba Certification? If you are ready to start, then you are in the right place! Get your Open Water Diver Certification in three steps:
Scuba Certification – Open Water Diver
Step 1 – eLearning:
Self Study: This will be the first step in becoming an Open Water Diver! Using eLearning, you begin to learn the basics of SCUBA Diving – in the convenience of your own home and at your own pace. eLearning must be completed prior to the in-water training.
Step 2 – Orientation & Pool:
Once you complete the self study, join us for an orientation for personal gear purchasing and rental gear fitting.
Classroom & Skills Development:
Then at your classroom session you will review your course schedule, work with your instructor to learn Scuba equipment assembly/break down, and go over your self study materials
Confined Water Training:
You’ll head to a local heated pool and practice the fundamental skills of diving over a period of one weekend. These are fun sessions that are required to move on to Open Water training and will make the transition easier
We also offer Private Lessons! More info here.
Step 3 – SCUBA Certification:
Go diving! Finishing your open water training consists of four dives conducted over two days. You’ll apply the skills you learned in the pool and finish your certification during these dives. You can join us locally or travel with us to a more exotic destination to finish your dives.
If you would like to finish your certification with another dive center worldwide we can make a referral packet and provide you with the necessary documentation.
