e-Learning Flex
Basic SCUBA Course


New for 2017, the eLearning Flex SCUBA Course allows students to complete the eLearning at their pace. Once the eLearning is completed, students may pick from one of the many available Flex Pool Sessions to complete their pool skills. Once the pools skills are completed, the student may then pick a Flex Certification Weekend to complete their Certification Dives. 

This flexibility allows Underwater World students to complete the course at a potentially more convenient pace than the traditionally structured courses, without sacrificing training. Flex Courses are intended for students that already have good water and swimming skills and are able to learn well through eLearning. If this isn't you, take a look at our more traditional classroom courses.
