We did it at CSA, but I would assume it is the same process.
First, we had to swim 200m in the pool. You can't stop and can't touch the bottome of the pool. You would be really surpirsed how hard this is. I have seen more people fail the swim test then actually passing it.
Next, you will watch a short video on the basics of diving, the dive master will give you an oral quiz after the video to make sure you understand.
You then go into the pool to learn your basic skills.
After that, you go out on a dive less then 30 feet.
All in all, we started at 8am and were done diving before noon. It really made us want to get certified and we are now taking classes at home so we can check out the other dive spots when we return in Nov.
CSA Junkie! Next trip -- November 28th!
