Learning to Scuba Dive
Scuba certification consists of three parts: Theory, Pool Training and Open Water Dives.
The theory portion of your certification class discusses the effects that diving has on your body, the scuba equipment and how to effectively use it, and the underwater environment that you will be entering when you are diving. The Theory can be accomplished in two ways:
- Purchase PADI eLearning module:
- Purchase Home Study Educational Kit and read and complete the workbook
Houston Scuba Academy conducts its pool classes in our indoor, heated pool that is located on site. In the classes, you'll become familiar with the equipment you studied in the theory classes and learn basic scuba skills necessary to fully enjoy the underwater environment.
Open Water Dives
Upon completion of the Theory and Pool classes, you hit the open water. In these classes, you demonstrate your scuba skills at a local dive site, complete with fish, sunken boats and other things to investigate. Upon successful completion of the required exercises and dives, you are a certified diver, ready to enter Neptune's realm whenever you want.
