Knowledge Development

This can be done in person where you will complete all Knowledge Reviews on your own and take a final exam with us (don't worry - it's not pass/fail and we will work together until you fully understand the material). Or, you can choose the eLearning path where you complete all Knowledge Reviews on your own and take the exam on your own. Once completed, you will take a quick review with us - again, it's not pass/fail.

Open Water

This will be done at Lake Phoenix (about an hour south of Richmond) over two days for a couple of hours each day. Like the Confined Water portion, its better if they are consecutive days, but we will work with you. Alternatively, you choose to complete your Open Water check-out dives on vacation - we'll be happy to assist in the referral process!
