step 1

Get Smart

Start your SDI Open Water Scuba Diver eLearning course and master all the important academic information. You can complete this phase through self-study, at your own pace, in the convenience of your home or office.  All eLearning courses work on mobile and tablet devices too. As soon as you complete the eLearning, call us to schedule steps 2 & 3.

step 2

Get Wet

The next step will be to complete your orientation session and in-water skill-development training. The orientation session reviews questions missed on the eLearning and any additional information the SDI instructor wants to add. Then comes the confined water training – this takes place in our swimming pool, under the supervision of an SDI Instructor. 

step 3

Go Diving

The final step is to complete the required number of SDI open-water training dives under the supervision of your SDI Instructor. Here you will apply what you have learned during your academic and skill-development sessions, while learning practical lessons that can only be gained through real-world experience in open water. Our Open Water dives are completed at Beaver Lake, AR.
