Q:

Thanks for the info. Sorry, more questions. How long is the certification good for and do you need to take refresher courses or dive a certain amount of hours yearly to renew certification?

Elsa H.  asked on  Apr 20, 2013

A:

Hi, Elsa! The certification is good for life, however, you have to keep on diving. If you haven't dove in a year but less than 2 years you will need to hire a dive guide to go diving with us. If you haven't dove for 2 years but less than 4 years you will have to take a refresher class. After 5 years we highly recommend you take the class again. The recommendation is to dive at least once a month, if you can do more better. Practice makes perfect.

Q:

What are times and dates for class and dives?

Elsa H.  asked on  Apr 20, 2013

A:

Hi, Elsa! How are you? The way the class works: you bring your Groupon to the shop, we redeem your Groupon, you fill out the paperwork, you purchase your study material and the equipment that you need. You go home, complete the self study and then come for a weekend for the pool sessions and open water training dives. We start at 5:00 pm on Friday, you take part in knowledge reviews and take five quizzes. You finish around 8:00 pm. Then at 8:00 am on Saturday, you take part in three pool sessions, break for lunch and then go to the dive site to do 2 open water training dives from shore. You finish around 5-6 pm. Lunch is on you and you need a car to come to the shop and then go to the dive site. We start at 8:00 am on Sunday, you take part in two more pool sessions, break for lunch and then go to the dive site to do 2 open water training dives from a boat. You finish around 5-6 pm. Lunch is on you and you need a car to come to the shop and then go to the dive site. If you have additional questions please let us know. Sebastian.
