General Overview -- Open Water Diver Course
Your diver certifications begin here!!
You'll begin by reading through your study materials, completing Knowledge Reviews, and watching the Open Water Diver Video. Then you'll meet at the shop one evening for a overview of the dive equipment. Next, you're on to the 2 classroom and pool sessions to learn and practice your new skills. Finally, you'll head out the following weekend to do your four open water dives.
Once certified, you're certified for life! Let your adventures begin!!
This class generally takes 1 evening session and 2 weekends to complete. If you can't do the full class in the the scheduled time frame, we will work with you to reasonably complete your certification in a timely fashion.
