Hey again... I was also wondering if the postings referring to 'certification' are the same as what I have heard called 'resort courses'. I was told by a few people that a resort course certification can get me in the water in a day... any truth or am I looking at the 4 day time commitment? I have been studying the PADI book for the last week or so to get a grasp of the content, am excitied to try diving for the first time!

Hi, a resort course does not get you a 'certification' It is designed for people who want to learn the basics and dive on the same day. You get your feet wet, excuse the pun, without committing to the expense and time of a certificate course. You can see if you like diving enough to further your studies.
I usually dive with Frenchies, Abel is a great instructor.

Thanks Bottom... that's pretty much what I thought. Is it possible to take the basic course, be in the water that day, and go elsewhere and use the same resort course training to dive at other places?

no, resort courses are just for one day. You could of course take another resort course somewhere else and you would have the info you learned but no paperwork. Have fun.
