Frequently Asked Questions

Cost: $9,295.00

Additional Fees:

How and where do I signup?
To signup please email, call (252-728-2265) or just stop in to Discovery Diving (if using Tuition Assistance please see below).

How long will the program take?
To graduate, the student must complete all of the classes. This could take approsimatley 5 months, depending on how dedicated the student is and how often they dive.

How often will I be going to classes/diving?

The student is not required to take a class every weekend, but if they wish to complete the program faster, we will generally have dives available for them to take at least once a week. Most classes will be held on weekends. But for example: Enriched Air specialty just requires classroom time, so we may schedule them on weekday evenings and some classes i.e. the Advanced Class may class time on a Friday evening to expedite the dives that following weekend. We are flexible; we understand that we have to work with many different schedules. We are eager to have students complete the program so we will do everything that we can to accommodate your needs.

What do I need to do before I Start My Class?

  1. Tell all your friends you are taking SCUBA diving course and ask them if they would like to join you.
  2. Schedule an entrance interview.
  3. Please complete the Medical Form enclosed with your student package, please get your Medical form signed by your doctor since you are entering into a professional program.
