Scuba Class for Certification!
Date: June 24, 2017 Time: 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Event Description Learn the fundamentals of scuba diving, including equipment selection, how water pressure affects you when diving, planning your dives and safety. Upon completing the two-day course—or when a level of proficiency is achieved—participants will schedule four open-water dives with the instructor. Divers ages 15 and older who complete the course and open-water dives will earn PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) Open Water Diver certification. Individuals ages 10–14 are eligible to achieve Junior Open Water certification. Equipment will be provided except for mask, snorkel, fins and boots. These may be rented ($50)—or you may bring your own. Pre-registration is required at the Goshen Parks & Recreation Office. Class fee is $300, which includes the two-day course, textbook, four open-water dives and additional instruction to achieve certification, if needed. Classes will meet at Shanklin Pool from 8 am to 3 pm. Please bring a swimsuit, towel, water bottle, textbook and equipment to each class.
