PART ONE: ONLINE EDUCATION (ELEARNING) Getting started with your Online Education is your first step to completing your certification. This takes an average of 6 hours to complete, and must be done prior to your scheduled Confined Water sessions. Online Education is consisted completed when the student passes the "eLearning Final Review." 2.) PART TWO: CONFINED WATER (POOL SESSIONS) Once your Online Education is completed, you'll be able to start your Confined Water sessions with one of our Instructors. This stage includes 3 pool sessions scheduled on 3 separate days. Each pool sessions has required skills that must be performed by standards in order to continue on to the next session. SCHEDULING: We hold Open Water Certification Courses every single month, year round! Each month has a consistent cycled schedule that is as follows: ​ *First Saturday of each Month = Confined Water 1 *Second Saturday of each Month = Confined Water 2 *Third Saturday of each Month = Confined Water 3 Note: If you start your Confined Water sessions at any point but are unable to attend the following cycled session, you will be pushed back into the following month's cycle on the session you left off on. 3. PART THREE: OPEN WATER SESSIONS (LAKE, QUARRY, OCEAN) After completing your scuba diving skills in the Confined Water sessions & the Quick Review with an instructor, you are then able to participate in the Open Water sessions. In these sessions you will perform the same skills you performed during the Confined Water sessions. After completing your final Open Water session & skills, you will be officially be an Open Water Scuba Diver - you can now dive as deep as 60 feet without an instructor or professional, but you always dive with a buddy! ​ These sessions are held from JUNE - OCTOBER. REFERRAL OPTION: If you have a scuba trip planned already, or if you're really looking forward to diving in that beautiful ocean, then being a Referral Diver might be the right choice for you! ​ Complete your Online Education, Confined Water Sessions & Quick Review with us - then finish your Open Water Sessions somewhere else, like the ocean!
