Learn to SCUBA dive!  This instructional class will meet evenings for classroom and pool sessions at the Student Recreation Center.  National Association of Underwater Instructors "NAUI" certification referral will be awarded upon successful completion of the course, and participants will be able to complete their certification with an open water dive trip of their choice.  No previous SCUBA experience required, however basic swimming skills are necessary to complete the course.

"Aside from why it's offered, I think scuba diving is also a very relaxing time. Whether you are a student here who has a ton on their plate or a faculty member dealing with a lot of work, the beauty of scuba is once you are 30 feet below, you can't hear anyone talk." - Andrew Huff, Assistant Director of Outdoor Rec

 

OVERVIEW AND QUALIFICATIONS

Scuba Diver is the NAUI entry-level scuba certification course. It provides the fundamental knowledge and skills to scuba dive. Upon successful completion of this course, graduates are considered competent to engage in open water diving activities without supervision, provided the diving activities and the areas dived approximate those of training.
 
During your NAUI Scuba Diver class, you will learn about modern dive equipment, diving sciences, responsible diving practices and the environment. Diving skills will be taught and practiced first in the comfort and convenience of a confined water environment and finally during your open water training dives with your NAUI Instructor.
