Academics can be done online or through "good old-fashioned" books. All academics are done as self-study, so you can do them on your own time at your own pace.

Confined Water Skills are completed in the City pools, typically Monday evenings at Pan Am Pool for 5 consecutive weeks OR over 2 days from July through September in the shallows of West Hawk Lake OR over 2 days in Cozumel, Mexico.

Open Water Dives are completed over a weekend, or 2 days in a row. There are 4 dives to complete your certfication and locally we can complete these dives from June through October each year at West Hawk Lake.  We can also complete these dives during any of our Diver City trips, worldwide.  OR you can complete these on your own vacation with any PADI dive shop around the world.

Rental Equipment is included* throughout your entire course and is kept up-to-date with servicing but it will be your responsibility to transport the gear to West Hawk Lake (if applicable).

*Rental equipment is only included if completing the course locally.  Rental equipment and boat fees are additional and paid directly to any destination dive shops.
