Scuba

Always dreamed of learning how to scuba dive but wanted more in depth training than offered at a vacation resort? Thought about a professional career as a scuba instructor but didn't know about career options and courses needed for certification in those career fields? AACC is now offering a variety of scuba diving courses to please your recreational and professional interests and needs - everything from a basic introductory course to determine if scuba is right for you to courses that lead to becoming a certified Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) instructor.

Offered in partnership with Sea Colony Aqua Sports, Inc., all courses are taught by PADI course directors, PADI certified master instructor trainers or PADI assistant instructors.

What are the requirements? 
Both WRS 501 Basic Scuba Diving and WRS 502 Advanced Open Water Scuba Diving are recreational diving courses as well as courses required for additional PADI certifications. For those two courses however, students must be at least 16 years old at the time of registration and must pass a swimming exam. All students must complete a medical questionnaire and liability waiver, including those in WRS 500 Discover Scuba Diving.

Becoming a PADI Certified Divemaster or Instructor
As a PADI Divemaster, you are qualified to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers.

As a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, you are qualified to conduct the entire range of PADI programs (with the exception of specialty instructor courses which require additonal training).  For more information contact Pat Barnhart at 410-777-2939 or email pdbarnhart@aacc.edu.
