How does a Force-E Open Water Diver course work? 
We offer PADI, SSI, and SDI/TDI courses year round with experienced instructors to guide you through your certification process. Group classes use the SSI certification materials and 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.
