DURATION: approximately 31 hours, based on a class of 10 students


Students must satisfactorily demonstrate meeting knowledge development and water skills performance requirements (objectives) in their required sequences.


Knowledge Development

There are five sections (modules), each of which is normally accomplished through independent study with the Open Water Diver Manual and Open Water Diver Video, or with the Open Water Diver Multimedia. The students answer exercise questions within the reading, and complete a Knowledge Review for each section that we check for completeness and understanding. Students demonstrate mastery by completing the appropriate Quiz and following the fifth section, a comprehensive Final Exam. Then students receive a brief elaboration during which we answer questions and apply the material to specific student needs and local environments.


Confined Water Training

Confined water is defined as a: 1) swimming pool or 2) confined open water which is an open water site that offers swimming-pool-like conditions with respect to clarity, calmness, and depth. -- There are five Confined Water Dives that correspond to the five Knowledge Development sections.


Open Water Training

Open water is any body of water considerably larger than a swimming pool that exposes student divers to an environment similar to that experienced by recreational divers.
