Our dive knowledge and skills should be refreshed after 12 months of inactivity but your certification is for life.
You would enjoy heated swimming pools most, like our favorite at the Aspen Rec Center. We are also happy to bring the party to the pool at your home. Adventurous divers have no problem in local lakes.
No, not in a pool, and actually very very unlikely diving in general. As you will learn in our training, conservative dive profiles and techniques do not make that very probable. You will most likely succumb to "The Giggles".
You are welcome to bring everything you have, but we've got you covered. All the scuba gear needed is included in every session, except for your graduation wetsuit, Lockers are available at the ARC but bring a towel for afterwards.
For the introductory sessions you do not, your BCD will float you on the surface. Underwater, everyone actually feels graceful. If you want to become certified you will be required to tread water for 10 minutes and either swim 200 yards or do a snorkel surface swim for 300 yards. neither swim has a time limit..
Maybe, maybe not, but if it is we will work through it together. Most people would say it's really no worse than wearing ski goggles.
Swim stuff, whatever you are comfortable with. You can change and shower at the pool. Bring a towel.
Not for the introductory sessions. You're are not enlisting in Navy Seal training, you are on vacation. Depending on the flow of your pre-dive briefing we will be blowing bubbles for 30-45 minutes or an hour, that's your call. During certification, plan on being in water for extended periods.
We will write you a " Referral ". A referral is your personal training record valid for 12 months from the last training segment.Unforeseen events in life may change your plans and venue. A referral may be issued at any time after training begins and can be taken to a PADI Resort/ Dive Center/ Instructor any where in the world. As long as some training continues every 12 months and you still love it, There Is No Need To Quit !
