PADI OPEN WATER SCUBA

This class will teach you the necessary fundamentals of diving and will enable you to legally dive, purchase equipment, buy air, board a dive charter, and continue your diving education. PADI is a LIFETIME certification that will never expire! However, if you go long periods of time without diving, we encourage you to take a dive refresher to familiarize yourself.

There are 3 components to our Open Water Certification courses:
Academics: Where you learn the theory behind diving safely and the principles of SCUBA.
Confined Water Training: Practicing SCUBA skills in the pool.
Open Water Sessions: Demonstrating what you have learned in Confined Water Training and the final stop to certification!

Classes are held on Saturdays from September 3 - October 1 at 9AM. Pre-registration at the YMCA is required. Contact Bob Stover(419-447-1819 or rstover@woh.rr.com) for more information.
