Certification Steps  

Training and certification is essential for scuba divers. Carrying a scuba certification card from a recognized scuba association assures others you have been trained to dive safely and responsibly. A full-service dive shop will require you to show your scuba certification card before arranging a chartered diving excursion.

It has often been said that getting a scuba certification is harder than getting a library card, but easier than getting a driver''s license. This is a very fair assessment. A scuba certification is not free or easy; you are required to prove that you know how to use the equipment, handle yourself underwater and know how to react in a wide range of underwater situations
