Schedule Your New Student Orientation

The New Student Orientation should ideally be conducted at least a week out from your first class session. Typically it takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete, as we'd like to ensure that you have ample time to get your questions answered and feel comfortable and confident prior to the first session.


Within the new student orientation, we will:

  • Help setup your SSI app
  • Ensure you have access to all digital materials and understand what needs to be completed
  • Complete any outstanding paperwork and review the medical form
  • Review the required personal gear items and conduct a personal gear fitting for the items you need
  • Explain how to setup your personal gear so that it's 'pool ready' for the first session
  • Address any questions or concerns you have

To schedule, please reach out to the store directly by phone or by replying to your welcome email upon registration.


Part 2: Certification Dives

Four certification dives are required to complete your certification, and should be done within six months of finishing your pool and classroom portion.



  • 4 open water certification dives
  • Digital certification card
  • Rental gear for two days of certification dives


Does Not Include:

  • Price of trip or entrance fees, where applicable
  • Physical certification card


These certification dives can be completed through three methods:

  1. Certification Vacation 

    Certification Vacations are short trips exclusively for our students who are looking to complete their Open Water Certification Dives. An easy flight from the U.S., Certification Vacations offer students the chance to complete their certification in clear, warm ocean waters with an experienced Diventures instructor. No more waiting until the weather is just right or diving through murky lake waters. These vacations allow you to dive any time of the year!

    There are six spots available on each Certification Vacation trip. This ratio allows for each student to get individualized attention from their instructor. For most students, this will be their first-time swimming in the ocean. Knowing you are doing it under the watchful eye of an expert makes for a confidence-building experience.

  2. Locally

    Many of our stores have local diving opportunities for you to complete your training! These are typically available seasonally, weather permitting, and are a great option to complete your training economically and close to home.

    Select one of our 'Open Water Diver - Certification Dives' options below, or reach out to the store to learn more!

  3. Referral

    We complete your paperwork for an upcoming trip you already have planned. Because you haven't completed your full certification yet, you will need to partner with a store that teaches under the same training agency (SSI) in order to receive credit for the portion you've already completed.
