This is a classic approach to conducting development training in the dive center's classroom using hard copies of the training materials. Our weekend classes allow you to complete your scuba certification in two consecutive weekends. The first weekend (or two days if a weekday course) consists of classroom and pool instruction (8:00 AM- 6:00 PM). On the second weekend (or final two days if a weekday course), you head to Lake Travis for your open water training dives (8:00 AM- 2:00 PM)
