The group sessions are scheduled classes, booked either once per week (for 5 weeks) or over a weekend. There are 5 in-class and pool modules. Once these have been successfully completed, you can arrange the 4 open water training dives.
It is the 4 open water training dives that qualify you to become certified. They can be completed within our normal diving season, or you can opt to complete them down south in warm water. We will provide the documents needed for this option.
