To enroll in a Force-E's Open Water Diver course (or Junior Open Water Diver course), you must be 10 years old or older. You will need to have adequate swimming skills and be in good physical health. No prior experience with scuba diving is required.

How does a Force-E Open Water Diver course work? 
We offer SSI, SDI, PADI, and NAUI courses year round with experienced instructors to guide you through your certification process. Group classes consist of 4 people or more and we have set class dates throughout the year for each store location (see below). If the group classes don’t work for your schedule, consider a semi-private (2-3 people) or private class (1 person) where you set the dates and the instructor works with your schedule.
