OPEN WATER SCUBA CERTIFICATION COURSES

Two courses will be offered during the 2020-2021 term. The course will provide the novice with the minimum knowledge and skills to safely progress to Open Water Scuba Diver Certification. Both sessions will have only one classroom theory session and the remaining theory material and examinations will be delivered online. The remaining theory sessions can be completed based on the participant’s schedule but must be completed prior to the open water training session.

Upon successful completion of the required documentations, pool and theory material, the participant will be required to complete a separate open water examination to be granted A.C.U.C. International Certification. For more details, visit www.acuc.es. Once certified, a diver can participate in diving activities without the direct supervision of a diving instructor. Information on how to complete the open water training will be provided as several options are available through other training originations or warm water locations!

OPEN WATER TRAINING & CERTIFICATION COMPLETION

To become certified divers, the participant must complete an open water examination within one year of completing the course. Open water examination can be conducted by any certified scuba instructor through many dive shops locally and internationally upon presentation of the referral letter.

The club usually offers open water examination once each spring. The participant must attend three open water training pool sessions. These sessions are required for anyone who wants to enroll in the open water examination. The open water examination is usually done on a weekend in late June and is $100.00 (gst included) plus equipment rental.

Diving is for everyone

Diving is an activity that can be enjoyed by almost everyone, including people with disabilities.

A short film "If I Can Drive, I Can Dive" directed by Slovenian. Author Peter Lombar is presenting a large group of SCI (Spinal Cord Injury) divers in a swimming pool during their practice. Divers are members of IAHD Adriatic (International Association for Handicapped Divers Adriatic) from Slovenia which is member of C.M.A.S.




Ear barotrauma

Ear barotrauma is the single most common type of diving injury, and it can be difficult to explain exactly how delicate ears are to both new and experienced divers. Use this excerpt from the Prepared Diver course to help your students and divers better understand pressure effects on ears and how to avoid injury.
