During each SSI Open Water Diver certification course, students combine 12–16 hours of classroom and pool training with open-water dives at Clear Springs Scuba Park or Athens Scuba Park with an additional admission fee ($20; not included in this Groupon). The Open Water Diver course includes some rental equipment—including a compressed air tank, wet suit, regulator, buoyancy control device, and weights—but students must purchase their own mask, snorkel, fins, and boots from the gear shop or pay a rental fee ($85; not included in this Groupon). Each student needs a home-study system available from the dive store to prepare for the class. Upon completion of the course, divers must register their certification with SSI for an additional fee ($20; not included in this Groupon).
