The eLearning only classes are one week long with Monday having an orientation and gear pick up along with a quiz covering what was learned in the eLearning.  Tue, Wed, and Thu are pool nights with the open  water being conducted on the weekend.

e-Learning that is done during a normal class schedule will still be over two weeks you just dont have to attend the monday class dates.



​The open water course consist of three pillars; three academic sessions, three/four pool sessions, and four open water dives. The academic sessions are completed at the dive shop. When registering you will be given a book, dive log, and recreational dive planner table. Prior to the first class, you will need to complete applicable forms, read chapters 1-3, and complete the corresponding Knowledge Reviews. If you answer "Yes" to any of the medical questions, you will need a doctor's approval prior to the first pool session. During the class sessions, we review the Knowledge Reviews, take applicable quizzes, and sign out dive gear. Prior to the first pool sessions, you will sign out gear, and prior to the open water dives, you will sign out additional gear.

​The pool sessions are held at either the Dover Indoor Pool or the YMCA of the Seacoast in Portsmouth. The first pool session will be conducted in the shallow pool and the balance of the class will be held in the deep pool.  Once you complete your skills in the pool you will be ready to dive with your instructor in open water (lake and ocean) which are typically done over the weekend.
