Two-Weekend Course

Finish in two weekends! This course is specifically designed for those who want to finish quickly and have weekends free.

Course Description

Just imagine where you will go! Begin your underwater explorations by enrolling in a Diver’s World Scuba Diver class. This is our entry-level certification course where you will learn the fundamental knowledge and skills to safety dive in open water.

Earning your Scuba Diver Certification card is an accomplishment for which you will rightfully feel proud and you will be ready to begin a lifetime of underwater adventures and discovering.

During your Scuba Diver class, you will learn about modern dive equipment, diving sciences, responsible diving practices and the environment. Diving skills will be taught and practiced first in the comfort and convenience of a confined water environment and then you will finish in an open water setting.

The Two-Weekend Course spans two consecutive weekends to get you certified quickly. This course is fast paced for those who are comfortable in the water, are good swimmers and, preferably, have prior experience with snorkeling and/or scuba. You will be expected to complete the online portions of the course before the first class.  Students must fully attend all scheduled sessions.

We never compromise on safety and want you to become a fully competent and safe diver. Please think twice about enrolling in any course that offers an open water certification in one weekend or two days. Even with the best instruction, effective learning of life saving skills in such a short time frame is dubious at best.

Class size is limited to six students due to the nature of this course so please enroll as soon as possible.
