Q:

Is the certification received in this scuba course, PADI certification? Please advise. art vivar penumbraenergy@comcast.net 713.305-6029

A:

A common misconception, PADI is not a certification or a certifier. What's important is what the course is called which is Open Water Diver Certification which is the first or beginner no matter who offers the course NAUI, PADI, SDI, TDI, IDEA, PDIC, SSI, CMOS, and the list goes on. Its just like different high school teachers will use different books at different high schools, what matters is the experience of the instructor that is teaching the course and how well they communicate information as well as gauge if you are learning that information. We stock PADI books here and I'm a PADI instructor however I'm choosing to use SDI's CD Rom course materials because I find that they are more user friendly and easier to understand.
