    You don’t need to be certified to go diving now, i’m 15 and went diving in Hawaii not to long ago. I do plan on getting certified but it’s not always needed now.

    do you need to be certified to go free diving with your familly on a vacation and how long dose it take to become certified?

    I’m getting certified soon.. I just took my written exam and next week I’m doing my four open water dives in Pennsylvania. This monday coming up I’m just reviewing my skills at the SSI dive pool. I’m taking my TACHYON XC Micro helmet cam and making a video out of it.. Check it out! :-)

    Hi, guys. have watched several of your posts,and it’s great to see professionals sharing their knowledge and getting people interested in scuba. thanks.

    you can maybe do the first certificate very fast. But it’ll not make you a capable diver. Only lots of dives, further training and exercise will eventually get you there.

    The certification is nothing.

    usually it takes 3-4 days kinda. 1 day in classroom, pool, then open water

  15. iflynotlie on November 3, 2011 at 3:47 am

    i like scuba diving…considering i live in the florida keys and we get certified within a week it doesnt take long at all

  16. futureorcatrainer500 on November 3, 2011 at 4:20 am

    And I want to point out a minor mistake in the video. You must be certified to scuba dive, regardless of whether you’re boat diving or not. Don’t kill yourself. Just spend the money to gain the knowledge that could ultimately save your life!

  17. futureorcatrainer500 on November 3, 2011 at 4:51 am

    The open water course can take as little as a week. The classroom work is mostly about safety. You’re screwed if you make a dive to 100 feet for longer than your maximum alowable bottom time, and you aren’t aware of how breathing air under pressure can effect your body. It doesn’t take long to learn this stuff, but skill and technique are always things that you can improve on, no matter what kind of certification you have. I’m 14 and I have my Advanced open water certification. I live in water.

    No its possible!! HARD but possible

  19. scareface999 on November 3, 2011 at 5:20 am

    well I’m a CMAS diver and at my diving association courses last long as 3 months (from march to may and from september to the end of november, whit lessons twice a week classroom/pool) belevie it or not :)

  20. ganx0684 on November 3, 2011 at 5:48 am

    I see what your saying, but experience will always come from open water. You can spend a month in the pool, but itll always be a very different situation out in open waters. Im actually curious how long your classroom/pool sessions were? With all the research I did when I was looking to get certified, I dont think I saw any that was longer than 2-3days classroom/pool and 4-5openwater dives.

  21. scareface999 on November 3, 2011 at 6:17 am

    of course I know you can get certification in 1 weekend, but it’s just not serious: how would you pretend to become a good diver in a weekend??
    and you’ll see the difference underwater!

  22. ganx0684 on November 3, 2011 at 6:55 am

    My cert done in Miami Florida was 1 weekend classroom/pool second weekend openwater.

  23. scareface999 on November 3, 2011 at 7:54 am
