The absolute minimum is 3 days (not counting the time it takes to complete the eLearning portion before the physical class starts). The 3 day class would look something like this: day 1 - class/pool; day 2- pool / checkout dives # 1-3; day 3- checkout dive # 4. This by no means is a guarantee to finish in 3 days. If the student is not progressing comfortably during the pool phase, we will not move onto checkout dives until they are ready.
You do not need to buy ANY gear while completing the Open Water course (You will need your own basic gear for any advance courses though).
I no longer sell dive gear.......purposely. There are a few great places to buy gear in town or online. I'll be happy to point you in multiple, unbiased directions.
When I closed down the dive shop, I donated the Bauer and cascade system to a local Scout troop for their dive program. My little Alkin is perfect for those occasional instruction fills, but would not support air fills on a commercial basis. I'll be happy to point you in the right direction for fills, inspections, and hydros.
Just call, If I'm at home I'm open!
Judge for yourself, here's a video.
