You're interested in SCUBA diving and want to know what is involved? To start SCUBA diving you’ll need to
first take some lessons. These
will help you understand how to use the SCUBA gear, how to be a safe diver
and how breathing compressed air underwater affects your body. The card you receive upon successful
completion of a SCUBA course is called a Certification card. This is what you will present to
purchase SCUBA equipment, and or participate in a SCUBA trip. The card lets the staff know that
you’ve successfully completed training and understand the basics of SCUBA
diving. After you complete your
first SCUBA class you may be interested in Advanced
courses to increase your diving knowledge.
