Learn To Dive in Toledo and Northwest Ohio
If you like large classrooms with no personal attention and classes done at our time schedule and not when you want to do classes we are not the Dive Shop for you. HOWEVER if you like small classrooms and lots of personal attention we are for you.
We specialize in small classrooms since we opened in 2001. We work very close with all our students. Our Classrooms are based on One on One instruction. Our classes are done when you want to do them not when a groups is filled.
SDI Open Water Diver Certification
SDI On-line Classroom & Equipment familiarization:
At the time you sign up for this class I will give you an SDI on-line code so you can access the TDI-SDI on-line learning center. The academic part of this class will be done on-line. I will also provide you with an SDI logbook to keep track of your dives and a SDI student folder to keep track of your class progression.
At your leisure you will study the SDI on-line class. Upon completion of the SDI on-line part of the class you will call or come into Sea Level Scuba to schedule the SDI on-line review and equipment familiarization time. This is when we will review the SDI on-line classroom and show you how to assemble and disassemble the gear you will be using. At this time you will assemble the gear. I will show you how to put the gear on and how to remove the gear. You will then disassemble it.
The SDI on-line review and Equipment familiarization must be done before we go to the SDI confined water session/s. The time you need to plan on being at the Sea Level Scuba for the SDI on-line review and Equipment assemble will be 1.5 to 2 hours.
SDI Confined Water sessions:
Once the SDI on-line academic classroom & Equipment Familiarization is completed we will then proceed to the SDI Confined water training. SDI Confined water training will consists of two sessions. The time in the confined water depends on how quick you learn and the temperature of the water. While in the confined water you will learn all the required skills for you to become an SDI Certified Open Water diver. The SDI confined water sessions will be done only on weekdays between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm. For the SDI confined water sessions you will need transportation to the confined water location. Also needed will be a bathing suit, a towel, proper clothing for the outside temperature, a Mask, a Snorkel, Fins and Booties. *** We provide all the other gear needed to perform the SDI Open Water Diver required skills and we also provide all air fills.
