What to expect?

  • Prerequisites– Must be able to complete a swimming fitness test consisting of a 200 Meter swim without equipment and 10 minutes of treading water with your head staying out of the water. This will occur in the pool on the first day of training.
  • Paperwork– Register and fill out the General Liability and Medical Release forms. If these forms are not completed you will be unable to dive. You will be prompted to fill them out upon registration as well.
  • Knowledge Training–  First, your instructor will send you a code for your e-learning to complete before the open water training. There will be a final exam at the end of the e-learning which you will then go over with your instructor. This will occur in a video call or in person before the open water training. E-learning takes approximately 10-15 hours to complete.

  • Pool sessions– You will undergo skill training using scuba equipment. There are 2 pool sessions which take approximately 3 hours each. We will cover all the basic scuba skills. We can arrange a third pool session if necessary.

  • Open Water Session– To be completed at a later date while you’re on vacation!
