Conducted throughout two weekends, courses grant students aged 10 and older lifelong scuba certification after a series of in-pool instructional lessons and four open-water dives at a local flooded quarry. A six-month subscription to Dive Training magazine supplements coursework with helpful articles for the beginning scuba explorer. Additionally, customers can opt to take the peak-performance buoyancy course, which provides instruction on how breath control, weight placement, and body position can affect buoyancy during a dive.

Sink or Swim Scuba

Brent Clevenger founded Sink or Swim Scuba in 2006 to provide regular open-water dive experiences to fledging and senior divers alike. He trains neophytes in his full-sized pool, letting them control their buoyancy to drop to the full twelve-foot depth after they master underwater breathing fundamentals in the shallow end. He also oversees scuba certification training during group dives at the Piedmont Dive Rescue Association Lake Norman Quarry. The former dig site provides plenty of underwater excitement with schools of fish and sunken objects to explore, such as the quarry manager's shed which used to house instructions on how not to flood the quarry.
