With the COVID19 we want you to do ALL of the reading and quizzes in the digital materials before you arrive. When you arrive we will have a Q & A session and dive right into the final exam (pass/fail) so you need to read. We spend the majority of the day in our clorinated pool learning "Hands On" skills with a lunch break. 

**All share air skills are simulated to reduce any exposure.**     

On a subsequent weekend you attend your certification dives at Lake Pleasant to finish the certification ( SSI standard is 4 dives over 2 days. We give you a chance for 1 extra dive on day 2 so you feel more confident when you graduate)

Included in Our Open Water Course & Certification Dives:

  • Digital Open Water manual as homework. Help us by reading your digital materials before class.
