What You'll Learn
As a certified diver, you will be comfortable with all basic diving skills and will be able to dive up to 60 feet anywhere in the world. You will understand the essentials of diving including dive planning, self-rescue, and navigation; as well as having a newfound appreciation for the underwater world.
How You'll Learn
You will learn to dive in a group setting with direct supervision from your instructor. Your academics will begin with online E-learning through the industry leading SDI online learning program. E-learning is followed by an academic lecture, where you will learn about the care and use of equipment as well as dive planning and decompression theory.
During the two pool sessions you will learn the hands-on skills of diving in a controlled environment with hands on attention from your instructor. These skills will be put together during the open water dives in a natural environment, but still with the supervision of your instructor.
