Your program begins immediately! When you sign up for our course you will receive your learning materials. Knowledge Development is completed using PADI's home learning material system. Using this multimedia approach to learning, students benefit by being able to complete their academics at their own pace.
Once you have completed your Knowledge Development, you can join our group sessions for five evenings of high energy fun! Each night, we will start in the shop and finish up in the pool. You will complete your training dives the following weekend in the ocean.
If you prefer, you and your buddy can join us for our Semi-Private Program - designed for people who are short on time! This semi-private program has a maximum of two students. You complete your academic sessions on-line at your own pace with our eLearning pass. Then join us for two evening sessions in the pool and a weekend in the ocean.
If your schedule is challenging or if you would like to put your own group together, our Private Program is just the solution. We will work with you to develop a schedule that meets your needs. Your instructor will meet privately with you for all of your training sessions.
