Thank you for your interest in the Open Water Educational Program. The Open Water Program is based upon a consistent progression from the Classroom, to the Pool, and then again to the Open Water to develop your diving skills efficiently and safely.

Unlike the majority of the certification programs in the diving industry, our Open Water program is primarily concerned with the quality of the divers that we create… not the quantity.


Realistically, no matter where or when you take your training you will spend between $200 and $600 to be properly equipped and properly trained. This cost may include your own personal equipment, or your snorkeling gear, rentals, certification materials, dive planning tools, classes and pool sessions.

Scuba Centers of MichiganRental vs. Owning

Should you rent or should you own your equipment. Well…the ultimate choice is up to you. But, let’s look at the facts:

New divers that rent equipment, generally, do not dive often, if at all after their certification programs. Why? You ask. It’s pretty simple, rental equipment is not designed for you. If your first experience diving was uncomfortable, for any reason, the motivation to experience that uncomfortable feeling again will be pretty low. Most people have varying body sizes, thus the equipment should be fit for the particular user. That is why the #1 fact of new divers is. If you are trained in your own equipment system, and are warm and comfortable…you will be 100% more likely to dive and continue to dive.
