Marhuck- we did our cert. @ CN a few years ago. Depending on where you live, it can save you a small fortune. It would have been about a grand apiece for hubby and I to get certified here in GA vs 375 per person at CN. Plus the dive masters are diving every day vs. an instructor who goes out every now and then. The water is also warmer, and better visibility than back in the states. Class time is insignificant. Reading and testing only took a few hours and we were completely certified (and comfortable) by day 2, lunchtime.
