program in the world! This is your ticket to a lifetime of intense
adventure with PADI, the dive company that sets the standards in the
global diving community.
The Groupon covers your tuition to the classroom session, pool session and your 4 open water training dives. All your scuba gear (BCD, regulator w/ gauges, tanks, 7mm wetsuit and weights) is also included in the Groupon. You will need your own Mask,Fins,Snorkel of Scuba quality. Sporting goods snorkeling sets are not designed for scuba divers so they will not be allowed. The PADI Open Water Referral Course is
held on various Saturdays from 9am-3pm Classroom at our store in Northbrook and our pool session is from 10am-4pm next weekend at Bartlett High School Pool. We have a much closer pool location at Mary
ville Academy in Des Plaines but their pool filtration system is
currently going through an overhaul for another month or so.
The Open Water Training dives are held over a Saturday & Sunday 8am-12pm or 12pm-4pm at Haigh Quarry in Kankakee IL. There is a $20 per day entry fee to the quarry which is not included in the Groupon. During the dive season the open water training dives are the following weekend from the classroom and pool day.

PADI programs are
performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the course
skills. We keep the Instructor to student ratio small and personal. One instructor to four students. This allows us to teach the class and pool all in one day. The open water training dives are held over a weekend. We complete 2 dives on a Saturday and 2 dives on a Sunday, each day will be about 4 hours long 8am-12pm or 12pm-4pm.
We keep the Instructor to student ratio small and personal. One instructor to four students.
Before you attend class you need
to read the entire PADI Open Water Diver manual. In that manual there are 5 chapters and at the end of each chapter is a knowledge
review. The knowledge review is homework for class and consists of 15-20 short answer, multiple choice questions. The knowledge reviews must be completed by each student and is required for entry to class.
You will have to come into our store with your Groupon voucher to pick up the manual for your class. Remember to give your self enough time to read and complete the knowledge reviews at the end of each chapter before you attend class.
Once the classroom and
pool session are completed you are required to-do 4 open water dives in
a true open water environment. The open water dives will begin early May. We hold these dives 2 times a month during our dive season so you will have plenty of time to finish your certification. The before the weekend of your open water training dives you will have
to stop into our store on that Friday between store hours of 11am to
7pm. This is when you will get fitted for the thicker 7mm wetsuit and
pick up all your scuba gear for the open water training dive weekend.
