Certifications:

Scuba Diver

The Scuba Diver certification is designed for the diver who only dives a few times a year while on vacation. This certification can be obtained in 1 day and consist of a knowledge development session, 3 confined water dives (pool, or pool-like conditions), and two open water dives. After receiving the certification the person may dive under the direct supervision of a Divemaster to a maximum depth of 40 feet. This course is basically a short version of the Openwater Diver course so please click on 'More Info' under that course.

Openwater Diver

The Openwater Diver course is the stepping stone into a new world. With this certification you are entitled to dive anywhere, anytime up to 60 feet. Once this certification card is awarded it is good for life (we recommend a Scuba Review course after a longer period of absence from diving, usually more than 2 years). The course consists of 5 knowledge development sessions, 5 confined water sessions (pool, or pool-like conditions), and 4 open water dives.

  

Adventure Diver

You are certified...but now what. This course gives you an introduction into all the things you can do underwater. Do you like to dive wrecks? do you like taking pictures underwater? do you like to dive deep (up to 130 feet)? An Adventure Diver must complete 3 different Adventure Dives. The list of choices is plentiful: Altitude, Boat, Deep, Drift, Multilevel, Night, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Navigator, Search & Recovery, Underwater Photographer, Underwater Videographer, Wreck. Unlike the Openwater course no classroom work is involved and you learn by diving. This course is very similar to the Advanced Openwater course below. Adventure Diver can be achieved in one day and the course does not require any mandatory dives.

Advanced Openwater Diver

Every diver should eventually become an Advanced Openwater Diver. This course gives you confidence in the water, but also lets you explore a wide range of different activities. You also get to dive deeper once you achieve this rating (below 60 feet but not beyond 130 feet). You have the same selection as above but you must complete 5 Adventure Dives. Two of the five dives need to be a Deep dive and an Underwater Navigator dive. Unlike the Openwater course no classroom work is involved and you learn by diving.

  

Emergency First Response

Emergency First Response is a required course before entering the Rescue Diver program. This is a non-diving course that is usually completed in one evening. It teaches you how to respond to an accident or medical emergency confidently and efficiently. You never know when you might have to assist a co-worker, friend, or even family member. When you sign up, bring your spouse, friends, and kids...because one day they might have to help you.

  

Rescue Diver

This course is serious fun. The topic is serious but the learning is fun and rewarding. Rescue Diver teaches you to not only help yourself, but to also help others.  Of all the recreational certification courses this one is our personal favorite. It is a two day course that includes knowledge development as well as hours and hours of open water rescue fun.

  

Master Scuba Diver

Do you want to rank among the elite of recreational divers. Very few people come this far. Set yourself apart from the rest. Become a Master Scuba Diver. This is not so much a course but rather an award for completing 5 specialty courses. Ask us how you can join this elite group of divers.


Specialties:

Specialties give a diver a specific set of skills related to the activity. It is an opportunity to quickly learn everything a diver needs to know in a given area.  This is a great way to become a better diver quickly. All specialties have very limited book work and there are no exams to take (Enriched Air is an exception).

 


Professional Ratings:

Divemaster

The first professional rating in the PADI organization is Divemaster. After completing a long list of prerequisites (Openwater Diver, Advanced Openwater Diver, EFR and Rescue Diver) you are now ready to learn how to supervise and help other divers as well as assist in training students. This course is extremely fun since you actually get to work with students during all phases of your training. No matter if you want to start working in the diving industry full-time or just work on the weekends part-time, being a Divemaster is always rewarding.
