How to Become a Scuba Diver

The word scuba is an acronym for Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus and refers to the equipment which allows properly trained scuba divers to safely explore the underwater environment. At the heart of a scuba diver’s training is learning how this equipment works and the procedures and techniques for its safe use in a course of study that leads to certification. Scuba training is done by instructors who are themselves trained and certified to conduct courses for beginning divers by one of more than a dozen organizations known as training agencies. Diver training consists of three components: 1.Academic or classroom study, 2.Confined Water or pool training and 3.Open Water training. Entry requirements, training procedures and qualification tests vary around the world. Minimum age is 10 years old
