WVU Lifetime Activities has partnered with Dive Tech and Sports to offer a Discovery Scuba Certification class. This 8 week course is the foundation for any scuba diving program. This certification course prepares you as a basic open water diver and allows you to scuba dive anywhere in the world accompanied with a current instructor. Should you choose to expand your recreational diving commitment to a more technical, or professional level, this fundamental course provides you with all of the necessary training to move on and further your diving experiences. Through classroom and pool sessions, this class gives participants the opportunity to practice skills and knowledge needed to be a safe and confident diver.
