Open Water Diver Certification Course

September 5th, 2012 · No Comments ·

The open water diver course or basic certification is usually offered over two consecutive weekends for a total of four days that can otherwise be broken down in smaller sessions during weeknights totaling approximately 32 hours.

Out of the 32 hours approximately 10 hours are spent in the classroom for the academic instruction with the remaining 10 hours in a supervised pool and 10 hours in open water, meaning a natural body of water open to the sky.

After all three components of classroom, pool and ocean are successfully completed, a certification or “C” card is issued containing the new diver’s picture, date of course completion and name of the certifying instructor.
