Pros

Affordable, Helpful career services, Positive environment, Hands-on training

It was a fantastic experience. It was fun because we got to learn first hand in the water. I learned a lot about diving practices, hand signals, our diving equipment and much more. Hardest part about training was time management with our diving tanks. The most fun part was the whole process.

It helps me be a better diver as well as helps me deal with non-diving stressful situations. Sometimes non-business courses are ones that help us succeed most in business.

Very few interested employers.

Important classroom info followed by a great hands on experience then an instructor assisted dive. The class room information can be life saving and it is very interesting. There is a test on said information and it isn't too difficult to remember. The hands on learning is easy and fun and diving is an ex[experience worth the initial investment

Good combination of online testing, then once passed, in the pool practice. The online class really prepped for the in person class and helped you stay calm and prepared for what you would learn.
