Our Scuba Lessons are FUN!

Open Water Scuba Lessons

Open Water diver training must satisfy the same criteria in all international agencies. New divers must complete the following within 1 calendar year:

  • Academics
  • Pool Classes
  • Open Water

Scuba eLearning allows students to easily learn at their own pace and at a much more affordable rate than traditional classroom style. The course includes 16 chapters and an online final exam. Students may start and stop lessons as needed, plus permanently have full access to academic materials long after the course is complete. All scuba eLearning courses include a student kit and two in-person lectures with instructors: an introduction, and a review.

Scuba Network instructors teach all the skills students will need to perform in the open water. Instructors are also known to teach bonus skills based on decades experience! For everyone’s safety, every class is separated into pods with a maximum of 4 students per instructor, giving students lots of personalized attention. Private classes are also available.

All students must complete their Scuba eLearning coursework and an in-person review with an instructor at least 24 hours prior to attending any pool class. Students reserve pool roster spaces on a first-come, first-serve basis upon completion of their review. Classes fill up in advance–don’t wait until the last minute! 

The last section of the Open Water Certification consists of 4 dives in an Ocean, Lake or other “open water” setting. If you book an international trip with Scuba Network, you get these dives for free! Depending on where you go, these dives can range from $230 to $400.

Solo Diver Scuba Lessons

At one point or another, many divers have found themselves alone during a dive, whether it was intentional or not. SDI’s Solo Diving is the practice of self reliant scuba diving without a “dive buddy.”Solo diving, once considered technical diving and discouraged by most certification agencies, is now seen by many experienced divers and some certification agencies as an acceptable practice for those divers suitably trained and experienced. Rather than relying on the traditional buddy diving safety system, solo divers should be skilled in self-sufficiency and willing to take responsibility for their own safety while diving.

Being one of SDI’s most popular courses, the Solo Diver course stresses proper dive planning, personal limitations, and accident prevention, as well as the benefits, hazards, and proper procedures for diving solo. You will also learn the additional equipment that is required for solo diving including its proper usage and assembly. This is the perfect course for underwater photography and underwater video divers as well as those diving with their children or buddies that may not be very experienced in scuba diving.

NOTE: Proof of 100 logged dives is required prior to beginning this course, as well as SDI Advanced Certification (not the same as PADI AOW)

All eLearning courses come with a full review in-person with an instructor. A digital certification card is included in the cost of the course. A physical c-card can be printed for an additional $19.95
