Learn the fundamentals of safe and fun scuba diving, underwater ecology, and the latest in diving equipment with UT Professional & Personal Development’s Scuba Diver Certification Course.

After successful completion of all course requirements, you’ll obtain your Scuba Diver Certification through NAUI Worldwide.

This non-credit course begins Jan. 14 and is open to anyone age 12 and older. The course fee is $189; online registration is available.

You must provide scuba mask, snorkel, boots and fins, but it is recommended that you wait until after the first class session to purchase these items. The instructors will discuss equipment in detail at the first class session.

Class sessions will be a combination of lectures on Thursday evenings and pool sessions at the UT Health, Physical Education, and Recreation Building on Sunday afternoons.

Instructors David Crigger and Ron McMillian have a combined 37 years of scuba instruction and have logged several thousand dives around the world.
