A scuba diving license has two levels:
-The Open Water Certification (OW) is an entry-level autonomous diver certification for recreational scuba diving, limited to dive within the depth of 18 meters
-Advanced Open Water Diver (AOWD) is a recreational scuba diving certification level, limited to dive within the depth of 30 meters.
This time we will bring you OW certification class by United Divers Inc. The course is broken into two parts- four Saturday of academic and pool sessions, followed by a weekend of open water dives. This course is open to everyone ages 12-100+ (12-17 with parental consent), and will enable you to dive down to 60 feet (18 meters).
The course is broken into two parts-
1. four times of two hours of academic and pool sessions
2. a weekend of open water dives (two full days)
The Academic&Pool：The course meets for four Saturdays in May. On 5/1, students meet at United Divers at 2:30 pm and a van drives the equipment to the pool for about 40 min. The pool session starts at 6 pm and ends at 8 pm on Saturday. Students have to transport from Boston Sports Institute and United Divers with their own vehicle or carpool.
For the rest of 3 weeks, students meet at the Boston Sports Institute directly at 5:30 pm and end the pool session at 8 pm. There will be a 40min zoom meeting and 3-hour online class to be complete during the 4 weeks.
