New Class Opportunities
Can’t make a regularly scheduled class time for Scuba Skills Update, Snorkeling or even Open Water Diver? Choose a private session with an instructor. We are able to accommodate your time availability with some private sessions either at the shop or in the pool. With a little schedule comparison, we can get you into the pool or the classroom in the evening, daytime or weekends. There is a small fee for this private service but if that makes you able to complete your course, it’s well worth it. Click here to email Brian today to schedule your sessions.
Open Water Certification class starts on May 11, May 12 or May 14 but you can start working through the Digital Home Study now. Simply call or stop into the shop to pay for the course and get your registration credentials.
This time of year you start with digital online academic learning, then two classroom workshop sessions and two pool sessions right here. You then have the option for a referral to a warm water vacation destination or wait until next spring for training dives here. The next Pool sessions are May 14 and 15.
Over the winter as we think of those warm water dive destinations, we should also think about getting the rust off of our diving skills BEFORE you go on that trip. Every dive agency, therefore almost every dive destination, has a refresher or Scuba Skills Update requirement if you haven’t had a dive (and can prove it with a log book!) within the last 6 months. Don’t spend your first day on the remedial boat demonstrating the things you know already, get a Scuba Skills Update with MadisonScuba in the pool. It will cost you half the price and you get your entire first day of diving back on your vacation.
