Who the choice has ...
To give you the possibility to compare in the big market of dive centers, the different courses and offers we like to give you a hand how to compare the different programs:
- Do I have the possibility to get teached in my mother tongue ?
- Is the diving center which I selected, also an officially registered diving center?
- Can you have a look into the classrooms, to the rental gear and into the compressor room so that you will have a real chance to get your own impression of the dive center you selected ?
- Is the instructor who will teach you authorized and renewed to teach this class? This can be checked very easy, by asking for the instructor certification. The teaching status as well as validation year has to be placed on the instructor certification.
Please make sure that you will receive your OWN personal kit (book, DVD / video, diving table and logbook) and that you can keep it at the end of the course.
Please ask exactly for the entire costs of the course. What is included in the course price? Do you have to pay for example additional costs for your diving equipment or the certification ? Or do you get only rental books - possibly in a foreign language?
Let the divecenter show you the equipment you will use during your class (Total Diving System). For your own comfort you shopuld own (or buy) mask, snorkel and fins because it is very important that this equipment fits exactly to you.
Your instructor should be present during each course unit. Your certification signs, who actually accomplished the final open water dive with you.
At the end of the course the documents for your certification have to be filled out. You will receive a temporarily certification which is valid for 90 days. During this period you will receive your final certification. Most of the time we can hand out your certification already the next day.
If all these point fits your diving course will become a beautiful experience. Also the moment of your first breath underwater will remain unforgettable.
