What agency is the certification?
The certification comes from SDA.  It's a full Nitrox Certification and will allow you to procure Nitrox for scuba diving purposes anywhere in the world.
After you complete the final exam, we send several forms for you to complete.  Once we receive the forms, your Certification Card will be sent to you.

Do you really issue scuba certification cards for Nitrox without scuba dives?
Yes!  Upon completion, fill out the proper paperwork and we will issue a Nitrox Scuba Certification card valid at any scuba facility worldwide.
The quality of this course is superior!  It's a good course!  We believe that the responsibility for analyzing the oxygen content of the scuba cylinder is the responsibility of the diver, not the instructor or dive shop that conducts the dives.

In some areas, it can be very difficult for a diver to complete required dives for a Nitrox certification.
Example 1;  A certified diver lives in a small town in the mid west.  The nearest dive shop is 80 miles away and the nearest water is over 100 miles away.  The diver is planning a vacation to Cozumel and wants to dive with Nitrox.   The planning and time restrictions required are "out of the question" and the dives required are in a rock quarry that is 50 degrees.  With other scuba agencies the chances of this diver becoming Nitrox certified is ZERO.  We believe that the diver is safer using the Nitrox and therefore issue a Certification Card for that purpose.

Example 2;  A certified scuba diver is an executive assistant at XYZ Mortgage & Financial in Dallas, Texas.  She is going on vacation to Grand Cayman Island with her husband and teenage kids.  She wants to use Nitrox for two days of scuba diving.  She has checked with several local dive shops and found that every one of them offer evening class and scheduled nitrox certification dives in a muddy lake nearby.  The scuba shops offer dive trips to the coast for certification, but the trips do not fit within her busy schedule or budget.  With other scuba agencies the chances of this diver becoming Nitrox certified is ZERO.  We believe that the diver is safer using the Nitrox and therefore issue a Certification Card for that purpose.

Once I've ordered the course, how long does it take to complete?
This depends on how much time you are willing to spend working on the course.  There are 4 modules to complete followed by a final exam.  You have to complete each module with a 100% on each of the quizzes.  Then you have to complete the final exam with a 100%.  You can take the quizzes and final exam as many times as it takes to achieve a 100%.  There is no limit to the number of times you can take the quizzes and final exam.  Most people can complete the course in about 10 to 15 hours of study.  Your password and user name never expire, so you can take as long as you want to complete the course.  Some folks complete the course in as little as the next day, some folks take up to a year to complete the course.  It's a self paced course!

How fast can I get the Certification Card?
Once you complete the course, we send several documents to you.  Fill them out and send them back.  There is an option on the final exam for Overnight and 2 day air service.  The card can be printed and shipped to you in as little as 2 days.  The entire process, after you complete the final exam, should take no longer than two weeks.  Much faster, if you use an overnight service and eliminate the regular mail delay.

Can I complete the course with my spouse or children?
Absolutely! Yes you can!  You and your spouse or any number of people can work the course together, sending only one of the quizzes for the entire group.  However, the final exam and course tuition must be separated.  In other words, each person being certified has to send a final exam and pay for the course.  The final exam can be done as a group, but each individual has to send a completed exam with a 100% for our records.

What if I need help understanding a portion of the course?
What if I get stuck?
What if I have a question about something in the course?
Each module, all quizzes, and the final exam have email links directly to our instructors.  You can email directly with your question or concerns.  All emails are answered within 24 hours (usually much faster).  Or you can call direct at 928-680-DIVE (3483) between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (Arizona) and talk with one of our instructors to get an explanation and help with any portion of the course.

Will the course work for me if I'm already a scuba diver but haven't been diving in over a year or more?
Yes!  The course makes a wonderful scuba refresher course.  It covers basic physics, physiology, basic dive tables, etc.  Proof of previous certification is required for a Nitrox Certification.
