Westbrook CC Open Water Referral Course Starting February 5, 2022
We are excited to be partnering with the Westbrook Community Center to offer an Open Water Scuba referral Course. This course provides you with the academic and confined water training portion of the full Open Water Certification course. As a reminder, the final four open water dives for certification are not included.
Tuition for the Open Water Scuba referral course is $945 and is broken into two portions:
$195 for the eLearning program which you will purchase from PADI.com. Upon completion of the eLearning portion, you’ll earn a certificate of completion.
$750 for the course tuition.
Completion of the PADI eLearning is required to participate in the pool sessions.
The Open Water Referral Course will consist of three (3) 4-hour training sessions:
SESSION 1: Academic Review, PADI’s Required Quick Quiz & Intro to Scuba in the Pool
SESSION 2 & 3: Pool Training Exercises
Upon successful completion of the academic training and required confined water training exercises, the Open Water Referral documentation will be earned. This document allows you to complete the remaining four open water dives with a PADI instructor within one year at a destination of your choice. The fees for the open water are not included in this program’s fees and may vary.
