NOTE: When you register you must choose Florida Keys Dive Center as your Dive shop.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Our eLearning students will complete their class portion including all quizzes and exams online. When you arrive at Florida Keys Dive Center we will only have to verify your completion of the eLearning program by administering a short knowledge review. After that, it is off to the pool to complete your confined water training dives. Then it’s off to the ocean to complete your 4 open water training dives.
POOL TRAINING SESSIONS: The pool training sessions are designed for you to enjoy a smooth transition to the underwater world. These sessions will help you relax and have fun in the water using scuba equipment. All this is accomplished with your instructor by your side. We will have plenty of time to cover all scuba skills and gain proficiency in scuba techniques.
OPEN WATER TRAINING SESSIONS: All four of your open water training dives will be done off of our custom dive boats on the warm, colorful reefs of the fabulous Florida Keys. On these dives, you will confidently demonstrate scuba skills that were practiced in the pool. You will not be asked to do anything that you have not already practiced in the pool. The skill portion of the dive takes up to about five minutes. The rest of each dive, about 45 minutes, is spent exploring the fascinating underwater world.
COST: e-Learning fee payable to PADI (2019 rate is $190 per person) plus $400.00*+ payable to Florida Keys Dive Center. The course includes all gear (except mask, snorkel, and fins), course materials and certification processing fee.
*You must register Florida Keys Dive Center as your dive shop when registering or other charges may apply.
