The QUICK START SCUBA TRAINING offers an opportunity to fit learning to dive into your demanding schedule. Our staff can custom design a program to fit your individual or group needs. For those on a tight schedule, and a desire to take scuba lessons for certification. You can take advantage of our 2 or 3 session Quick Start Scuba Learning Program.

Our QUICK START SCUBA Learning Program is designed to prepare the individual for the Open Water Certification Dives. While this course requires less overall time at the Dive Center, the accelerated nature of this program requires CD-ROM SCUBA Learning Edition. The course is shortened using a CD-ROM home study educational format rather than a full lecture. The academic review sessions concentrate mostly on those points that you may have missed on your own. More time is devoted to the actual pool work. Instructors are available to assist if necessary. we know that the time and resources involved in learning to scuba dive with 1.877.SCUBA.USA will be well spent.

  • 2 Days: Two Pool Sessions, schedule for two Sunday mornings.
  • 2.5 Days: One Saturday AM 3hrs.., One Sunday 5hrs. & One Monday evening 3hrs.

Classroom and Pool Sessions
Your course starts with your orientation at 1.877.SCUBA.USA where you and your Instructor discuss which program is the best suited for your needs. When you come in to register for the course you will get your Open Water Diver CD-ROM. Our Dive Staff will also help you select your Mask, Snorkel, Fins and Boots during the orientation. You will schedule your next two sessions (and, if desired, the open water certification dives.) For each pool session you will need to have a swimsuit, a towel and a lock is suggested. Approved SCUBA Mask, SCUBA Snorkel, SCUBA Fins, Belt (no weights) and Booties (a tropical wetsuit is recommended, but not required). Scuba Equipment will be provided for the pool sessions.

Open Water Certification
The Pool and the SCUBA Learning portions of this course are only the beginning. To complete your certification you must complete four dives in an Open Water setting. Typically your open water certification dive will be scheduled over one weekend when possible after the pool and SCUBA Learning portions of this program. Local dives are conducted at a lake (Dutch Springs) in Pennsylvania. Taking a trip to complete your certification? We can put together a Global Referral letter for you. Regardless of how you plan on completing the certification dives you will have six months to complete the required Open Water Certification without retraining.

Additional Requirements
Students must supply their own student personal gear package to their first pool session. This package will and should be properly fitted and will become your most personal dive gear. We will help you choose something appropriate during your orientation session. This package will include: SCUBA Mask, SCUBA Fins, SCUBA Snorkel, Booties, Belt and a mesh carrying bag. For your open water weekend you need to rent equipment and purchase gloves. Your instructor will explain the equipment requirements during your lessons. Since you may not know exactly which equipment would work best for you, we understand that you are trusting the staff at 1.877.SCUBA.USA to fit you properly with equipment that will work for you in all your diving needs.
