Scuba Diver Certification Program.

There are 3 parts to this program. Passing all of them is required to receive your NAUI Scuba Diver certification.
1. Academic.
As with any certification program for Scuba, there is some basic knowledge that you need to acquire, and we try to make it as easy as possible to accommodate your needs. We use the Digital NAUI Education System which allows you to access the appropriate information anywhere you have an internet connection. We will track your progress through each section as well as know when you’re taking the quizzes, how many times you took them and what questions you have gotten wrong. Those struggling with any of the online program may opt for instructor led classroom discussion and presentations. We may also make the decision that the instructor led classroom is best for you based on your performance on the quizzes. If instructor led classroom is needed please make those arrangements with the Dive Center or your Instructor. Upon satisfactory completion of the academic training you will be required to pass an 85 question, multiple-choice exam, which is like your online training questions. You can start this part for $149.95 for just the Digital NAUI Education System. We also offer this as the Digital Plus NAUI Education System which includes the online code, textbook, logbook, dive tables and more for $199.95.
We also offer the Scuba Diver academic program with addition of the Nitrox certification. This Dual Certification Program is also offered both ways as Digital NAUI Education System and Digital Plus NAUI Education System just like above. The Digital NAUI Education System is $199.95 and the Digital Plus NAUI Education System is $249.95
2. Confined Water Training.
This is probably the most fun and most important part of your training program. You will start with a 2-3-hour orientation and fitting at our store, where you will be fitted with the appropriate sized equipment for use in the pool. You will also have a chance to be fitted for and purchase your personal snorkeling equipment that you will need for the course. You will complete 8 hours of training, in 4 sessions at about 2 hours each session, in a heated pool environment. Here you will learn to handle and use the Scuba equipment properly and safely, as well as the skills needed to safely enjoy your time underwater. Participants are required to attend all confined water sessions. Confined Water Training is either held 1x or 2x per week. Please call to see what schedule will best fit your needs or email us what days are best for you and we will put together an appropriate schedule for your training.
Please also note that a Medical Statement signed by your Physician is required before the start of this portion of the Course and will be given out when purchasing the academic portion of the course.
