DO THE COURSE WORK AT HOME .... GOOD ADVISE!
Many of the Dive shops in AC will let you do your checkout dives when you bring your universal referral. The prices are all within a few dollars of each other, so just do it with someone you feel comfortable with [maybe get a reference from someone you know or this board]
I personally will be doing mine with Kent @ Blue Hole Dive Center [plug
] The classes [which aren't hard] I've done in my home town because as was correctly said here ..... WHO WANTS TO STUDY WHILE ON VACATION!!
I used to dive many years agao [wont say how many :rolleyes: ] But I haven't been in the water for a very long time .... It was a no brainer for me to want to be recertified. All Things change and update, Nitrogen tables have changed,LOTS of Equipment changes ... etc ....
You really DON'T want to dive without a REAL certification, just not smart. Besides .. Once Certified you open up a whole new world to explore !! [Geez, I sound like a commercial!]
GOOD LUCK !!
