Need a review on your diving before heading to the blue waters? This class helps you refresh your scuba skills and can be arranged through the Outdoor Program office. You will attend the first day of a Beginning Scuba course. You must bring your current Open Water Certification to the class. You will be in both the classroom and the pool.
The curriculum includes compass navigation, night diving, computer diving, rescue, etc. A $75 equipment fee/student kit is required. Lodging, transportation and meals at dive sites are NOT included and range from $30-60 per day. A maximum of three dives can be done on any day. To complete certification, a minimum of eight dives are required in any combination of dates.
This course includes assists, transports, rescues and exits. The format consists of two classroom sessions, one pool session and three open water dives. Both a skills test and a written exam are required to qualify students. See fall guide for prerequisite insert. The NAUI dive rescue equipment/study kit ($45) is required for the class. Advanced Scuba and Scuba Rescue may be taken simultaneously. Transportation and lodging are not included in the class fee. All Rescue classes meet on Thursdays.
The divemaster program is the first step in Scuba Diving Leadership training. By being involved with scuba training from the Basic Course level through Diver Rescue Training, the divemaster student receives a well-rounded exposure to Divemaster Training. The course lasts one year and requires assistance in pool classes and open water training dives.
This is the final step in scuba diving leadership training. It results in certification as an open water scuba instructor through NAUI. The program involves teaching theory and training, pool and open water teaching skills, equipment maintenance, and class organization along with safety techniques. Course registration cost is $60. Additional certification fees are $840 and include texts, instructor registration, instruction, and equipment use. Class time is spread out through the semester with the final evaluation dive in the spring semester.
