Most of your classroom is done at home on line prior to the first on site session. Pool work is in our on site indoor heated pool and lake work is on Lake Ouachita (meeting at Brady Mountain Resort).
We offer classes to meet just about any schedule. Our standard class lasts 4 days attending Thursday night 6pm till 9:30pm, Friday night 6pm till 10:30pm, Saturday from 8am till 6pm and Sunday from 9am till around 3pm. Thursday night is a oral review of the online work and a written test as well as a watermanship evaluation (swim). Friday night is all pool work, first on snorkel and progress to scuba. Saturday we bigin in the pool on scuba and progress to the lake in the afternoon. Sunday is all at the lake. Cost for this class is $350.00. We’ll supply everything but your (Mask, Fins, Boots, Snorkel, Weights & Belt ). Don’t be fooled by come on rates elsewhere that will have a lot of add on’s. You must preregister at least one week in advance. In order to register and hold your spot you must sign a privacy notice/waiver (a parent must also sign if under 18 years old), give us your mailing address, your email address, phone number, date of birth, look at a medical history form to be sure you will not be required to get a physicians consent and place a $100.00 deposit ( which is non refundable–make sure you do not need a physician approval, before you place your deposit). The balance is due the first night of class.
If you cannot make this schedule work for you, feel free to contact Steve and see if we can work out a time frame that works for all.
