Why a SDC Open Water Course?
As a SDC Open Water Diver, your student will receive a NAUI certification. A certification that is recognized the world over. They will receive the knowledge and experience of 35 years of serving the SCUBA community. A Puget Sound trained SDC SCUBA diver is the admiration of divers the world over.

Getting Started?
If your student is in good health, comfortable in the water and of reasonable fitness, they can earn a SDC SCUBA Diver certification. They must be at least 12 years of age and there is NO MAX AGE Limit. Parents are encouraged to take the program with their students.

**We have a special program for kids that are aqua-phobic, or those who are not familiar with the water.

What takes place during my course?
You will learn the fundamentals of snorkeling and scuba diving. You will easily accomplish this by completing five swimming pool and academic sessions. Your five open water dives will be completed over a two day period. See our calendar for a schedule.

How long will it take?
The SDC courses typically takes 3 weeks, meeting twice a week (in the evening) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. With our 2 open water “check out” days on the weekend. Weekend course are available as requested, however we believe that weekend "quickie classes" provides minimal water time and are rushed. The usually require costly remediation to complete certification. Nothing replaces time in the pool and open water.

Your Own Schedule
If your student is home schooled, we know it takes a lot of time and energy on the parents part. We are eager and able to put a day time custom schedule together for your student.

Their own speed
SDC believes that everyone learns at their own speed. We allow, in fact we encourage our customers to progress at their own speed. Yes, you can repeat the pool work, if you are not ready for Open water.
