September Training Opportunities

Date: September 1, 2018 to September 30, 2018

We can take you diving any day this month. We offer introductory dives (no experience necessary, but you DO need to be able to swim), guided dives, night dives, and scooter dives daily.  We also offer Open Water certification courses once or twice a week.  

And here's what else is coming up in September.  This isn't a complete list, so if you don't see what you're looking for, just call us and we'll make it happen!

September 1: AWARE Shark Conservation Specialty. $149.  All the details are at this link!  And yes, this counts towards your Master Scuba Diver rating.  Heck, it can even count towards your Advanced Open Water cert if you don't have that yet.  Corey's teaching it, so you know it'll be a good time!

September 6:  DIVEMASTER  This morning will be the orientation session for our next DM class.  If you've been wanting to do this, now is the perfect time!  this certification enables you to guide dives professionally, assist with courses, get a job on a dive or snorkel boat, etc. There's some stuff you need to get done before the first day of class though, so come in and chat with us and we'll get you on your way. Class starts at 8:00

September 7-8-9: FREEDIVER Learn to hold your breath longer than you thought you could and enhance your skills with Curly.  This class starts at 2:PM on the 7th and then meets for morning sessions on the following two days. There is eLearning to complete ahead of time, so call us to sign up and get your eLearner code.

September 9:  Scooter Dives  Yee haw!  If you think you've been there, done that, you are in for a thrill.  You can join us on this day and learn to fly underwater.  If you want to earn the specialty certification, that's available too.

September 11 & 12:  Advanced Open Water  This class starts at 7:AM and students will complete the Navigation, Buoyancy, and Night dives (all from shore) on the first day.  The second day of class meets at Maalaea Harbor to complete the Deep and Underwater Photography dives from the Maui Diamond II.  No written tests for this course; it's all practical application!

September 14 Emergency First Responder Whether you've taken this class before and just need to brush up on your skills or are taking it for the first time, this class is a must-do!  Your current employer may require and sometimes even pay for it!  We can get it done in about 4 hours and will be starting at 1:PM. $125. This certification is required for rescue diver students, so whether you're enrolled in a rescue class now or plan to do it in the not so distant future, this is the class you need.

September 14-15-16 RESCUE DIVER  The first day of this class will be comprised of academic sessions covering first aid, CPR, emergency oxygen, and rescue academics.  Don't worry - we know how to make it fun!  The next two days we'll be in the water, role playing, learning and practicing skills and running through various scenarios.  Wear plenty of sunscreen, as lots of the training takes place on the surface!  Also, if you have current CPR and First Aid training (within the the past two years) that meets PADI standards, you may be able to skip this portion of the class.

September 16 & 17 Advanced Open Water  This class will include Navigation, Search and Recovery and Night dives on the first day followed by the Deep and Underwater Imaging dives the next day. 

September 18 Emergency First Response and Emergency Oxygen Provider  You can sign up for one or both of these (they will be completed back to back starting at 8:AM and finishing up around 1).  You can then continue right into the Rescue Diver class on the 19th and 20th or hold off and join us for that at a later date!

September 18-19-20 Rescue Diver My fingers are getting tired, so just sroll up and read the earlier description!!

September 19 DPV Specialty Did we say DPV?  That translates into Scoooooooter (aka Diver Propulsion Vehicle).  You are welcome to join us on this day for the specialty course or just as a guided diver.  This specialty (and all the others we mention on this page) DOES count toward your Master Scuba Diver rating. Flying underwater could just be YOUR superpower!

September 23 EQUIPMENT SPECIALIST Kelly will teach you a LOT during this course and you really should get in on it because she only does it about three times a year.  Is this a repair technician course?  Nope.  But you ARE welcome to bring your gear in.  She will teach you quick fixes for things that could happen to you in the field and so much more. Bring your questions and be prepared to come away with some golden nuggets you weren't expecting!

September 25 DPV Specialty Oh yes, we are doing the scooter specialty again today (scroll up for some more description).  We just can't get enough.  If you joined us a few days ago and want to visit some new sites, get yourself signed up for this session too!

September 30 - October 1 Advanced Open Water  Day 1 is Navigation, Buoyancy, and Night, followed by Deep and UW Imaging on Day 2.  All fun, all the time!
