Here are the steps to become a diver.
First – Pick the Pool Session –
You may have a trip in mind and need to be ready or you may just want to get certified. Usually, the first thing to do is decide when you want to do your pool sessions. From the link below you can find our schedule of pool sessions. Since spaces are limited so you want to pick early to make sure you get the time you want.
You’ll complete your pool session in one weekend. You'll come to the store Friday evening from 6 pm to 9 pm to learn how to assemble and set yoiur scuba gear, learn about how it works,, and how the weekend will go. Then you go to the pool from 10 am to 6 pm Saturday and Sunday. There you will learn all the skills needed for diving safely and having fun.
We have more information about the class and a list of classes at the link below.
Second - Get the online eLearning-
To obtain your certification process you will need to complete the Knowledge Development portion of your class. This is done online through PADI eLearning. That means at your schedule and your pace. Plus, you have access to your training materials anywhere in the world forever.
Once you are ready to start the eLearning just activate yoiur code. We will send you a link with the access code ready for you.. You'll create an account at PADI and get right in to learning about diving. It averages about 12 hours to complete all the eLearning. You can complete your eLearning on a computer or tablet. Your smartphone screen may be too small for effective learning. You can be the judge of that. Remember, once you activte the eLearnign it cannot be undone or refunded.
Don’t want to do it online? We can arrange for standard book learning. Just contact us for details
You can also call or come by the store to make payment by cash, check, or credit card.
Third - Pick Your Dive Dates -
An important step is to decide when you are going to do your Open Water Training Dives. We let you make the decision as to when is best for you. You don’t have to go with the rest of your class. You can even spit your dive up over two weekends, one day each. We offer a number of sites to do your dives and you get to pick based on your wants and needs.
You'll do most, but not all, of the skills you learned in the pool. Just in an open water setting. Since you have to complete four dives it takes two days to do all the required dives. The most you, as a student, can do in one day is three training dives.
Want to do your dives on a trip? We can give you a referral that allows any PADI instructor in the world to do your dives. Since you are not diving with us the referral store or instructor may charge a fee for the dives.
The course fee includes your Knowledge Development, pool sessions, training dives, use of the scuba equipment and certification card. If you wish to use PADI materials though another source we will give you a $50.00 discount on the course fee.
