The SEI Open Water Diver course is for individuals ages 12 and older. Learning to scuba dive is safe and affordable, and requires a modest amount of training. An entry-level certification course takes approximately 32 hours to complete.
Classes may be available during day or evening times, and take from a couple of weekends to several weeks to complete. In order to earn a scuba certification, you will participate in classroom sessions and practice essential diving skills in a pool.
Finally, you will test your knowledge on a written exam and apply your skills during training dives in a lake, quarry, spring, or ocean.
Upon completion, you will receive a certification card that identifies you as a trained diver, allowing you to rent scuba equipment, participate in advanced training, and explore exotic diving destinations.
