The Club offers a full range of training courses from one of the major, internationally recognized scuba training agencies, PADI. Interested individuals can enjoy an introduction to diving that involves a basic safety brief and the opportunity to try out real dive gear, in a safe, pool environment, under the direct supervision of experienced Instructors and Divemasters.
Watch our website, or contact our Training Coordinator to find out about this opportunity. There are no pre-requisites for joining a basic scuba course, but you need to be physically fit and comfortable in the water. Training takes about 30 hours of instruction, which is fairly evenly split between theoretical training conducted in a classroom setting with videos, discussions and quizzes; confined water skill acquisition in a pool environment and exposure to real World conditions in Lake Ontario or another suitable open water location. Once you achieve basic certification, a variety of specialties and advanced training options is open to you, and the Club has the ability to make these accessible to you. Courses are listed to the right. Contact our Training Coordinator for more information.
