WHY P.A.D.I OPEN WATER?
P.A.D.I. is the only agency that earns college credits and is the most recognized scuba training agency in the world. You will never have to “Call Ahead” to, make sure the destination you are going, accepts your certification for diving.
WHEN ARE THE CLASSES HELD AT DISCOVER DIVING DIVE CENTER?
Regularly scheduled Open Water classes are held on weekends. Two consecutive weekends in a row, from 8:00am to about 3:30pm each day.
WHAT WILL I NEED TO PROVIDE FOR MYSELF DURING CLASS?
Your own mask, snorkel, boots and fins. You will also need two passport size photos 1 for your file and 1 for your certification card. We offer to take those for $5 and have a dive flag in the background (just one of our many personalized things we do for you).
OKAY, BUT WHAT IS THE COST?
Only $290.00 for the certification, $195.00 for the eLearning online Open Water course. We are the only shop in Volusia County teaching with and using computers and using the newest curriculum. This price includes the classroom sessions, the confined water sessions and both days of Open Water dives in our fresh water springs (Springs entrance fees not included). This price also includes the use of the scuba equipment necessary for class (i.e.: Weights, regulators, wet suit, BCD, air tanks and an equipment bag to carry all the essential equipment for your dives.)
WHAT IF I CAN’T TAKE THE CLASSES ON THE WEEKENDS, WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
You have the option to do an executive class. These are available and we work with your schedule to complete your certification. The low cost of $500.00 is the charge for this small class but you are the one who sets the schedule with the instructor. We can normally accommodate any schedule.
GREAT! HOW DO I BEGIN THIS LIFETIME OF ADVENTURE?
Signing up for class is easy. Call or come into the store and find out when our next class starts. Pay for that class and pay for your eLearning course to receive your code to start this online with PADI. Read each chapter, watch the videos and answer the knowledge reviews, complete all quizzes and complete your final exam, prior to the starting date of your class. Print out your final completion paperwork from your eLearning course and bring it with you for your first day. We will help with all the rest.
