SCUBA DIVE TRAINING
We have been offered an opportunity to participate in semi private scuba dive traiing by Dive MAster Fred Brown, Fred has conducted classes for Ship 11 before. The instuctor will be providing us with semi-personal classes at an
EXTREMELY reduced rate over other commercial dive schools. This is PADI
certification, which you can keep active the rest of your life.
We will get multiple copies of the scuba instructional materials, which
is good for 3 - 5 students.
GROUP STUDY DATE
We have the first group training date once enough crew signs up.
SELF STUDY PROGRAM
Everyone will need to take the initiative and arrange their personal
time to read the material and do the review quizzes. You can
- and should - work together or share the pre-class material on the
CD. You are responsible for reading the Home Study material and completing
the self quizzes before the actual classroom training sessions with
the instructor. It is imperative to study the stuff in order to complete
the classroom in the allotted sessions and to be able to pass the written
test before moving on to the pool.
We will uploaded the manuals and reference material as PDF files, so you can download them or look at them on-line using
Adobe. We'll have some hard copies, too.
The classroom sessions with the Instructor will be set up following
your completion of the Knowledge Reviews.
Your medical forms, medical treatment authorizations and parental authorization
forms will be needed by the 1st classroom session. Important
- look over the medical form and if you have any YES answers,
it must be signed off by a doctor that you are OK to dive before you
can get in the pool!
Each student should have their own personal gear. Start checking
around with friends, relatives, e-bay, etc for personal fins and snorkels
and masks. The instuctor has some - but may not have enough of a variety
of sizes for everybody. Wet suits are optional for the pool dive as
the pool is heated.
We cannot commit the instuctor until we make satisfactory progress on
the Knowledge Reviews. He has other paying students to train. It is not realistic to schedule Pool or Beach Dives until we make
Beach Dives will be scheduled after the Pool Dives and successfuly passing the Final Exam. You will need a wet
suit for the beach dive, but you can rent one from Sport Chalet for
