Beach Cities Scuba's semiprivate Open Water Diver course is imparted over the course of two weekends, which can be consecutive or spread out to fit each student's schedule. After a brief Wednesday-night orientation, the first weekend starts with a classroom session, which covers the basics of equipment usage and quizzes students on the favorite colors of all known fish, before taking to the safe confines of a pool for five pool dives. Four subsequent dives take place in the open ocean, giving each student the chance to dive off the edge of a boat or from the beach.

After students receive their lifetime certification card, the Adventure Diver course unveils new concepts and techniques in different diving environments. Groupon customers choose three separate adventure dives in specializations such as night diving, wreck diving, and underwater videography. Students must provide their own mask, snorkel, and fins, which can be brought from home or purchased at a discount through Beach Cities Scuba's store; all training materials are theirs to keep.
