Dual Certification program exclusively at Atlantis Divers.

The benefit of getting certified by Atlantis Divers is clear. We always teach to all agencies’ standards and with the most accomplished and highest trained staff in diving, we are the only shop to offer you dual certification with your training. The program works like this. When you register for a  NAUI Premiere  class you get registered and certified also with SDI.

So, for example if you’re registered for this upcoming NAUI Rescue Diver class, upon your successful completion of the class you will not only receive your NAUI Rescue diver card but also a SDI Rescue Diver card for only a $25 certification fee. Sound amazing? Sound too good to be true? Well, it is true, and it’s that simple.

This offer covers Open Water Diver, Advanced and Rescue Diver. This is the benefit of being trained by the best, and the commitment from both your instructor and you, the student, to safe diving and training excellence. How do I go about getting this one-of-a-kind benefit?

Just tell us to 'dual certify' you when you register for your NAUI class and you will be automatically enrolled. Pass the course and you automatically are registered with both agencies and automatically get your second certification card from SDI.

Happy Diving!

 

Atlantis Divers is Central Virginia’s leader in comprehensive scuba diving training and personalized training options for our divers. Select from one of the standard training options, private training, eLearning from your home or custom combinations for your introduction to the world of scuba diving.

Private training just for you:
Atlantis Divers has a reputation of not only maintaining the highest level of expertise and professional staff; we also take being Central Virginia’s number one choice in customer satisfaction seriously. With this in mind, we offer a number of training options for the busy diver needing more scheduling options or the novice diver looking for one on one instruction. Either way, you can still expect to be trained by one of the best instructors in the industry. If this sounds right for you then the Private Open Water SCUBA Class is right for you. You choose between PADI, NAUI, or SDI for your training and as always dual certification is available at no additional charge.

We will conduct classroom lectures in the comfort one of our dedicated AV class rooms. We are the only dive shop who keeps a full size proper swim center on retainer for our use 7 days a week. You and your instructor will schedule your pool time together based on your convince.

We'll provide everything you need to become a safe and well educated Open Water scuba diver - Equipment, Open Water Crew Pack and DVD. You will watch the DVD, read the book and answer the Knowledge Reviews all in the comfort of home. We will then review all of this information in class.

Since the class is a private class, it's difficult to estimate how many hours are spent. Remember, everything we teach is performance based. We will teach at a pace at which you are comfortable. Overall, we'll spend 1-2 days for the class lectures, quizzes, a final exam, and pool sessions, then 2 additional days for the Open water dives.

This option is available for all of our divers, but for the beginner who is nervous one-on-one training from a professional Atlantis instructor at a schedule of your choosing can make this class a true once in a lifetime experience that follows a comfortable pace for you!

Class prices are all inclusive: Call or email us with your busy schedule and we'll put together a plan that works for you!

E-Learning options and combined options:

Internet based learning is an additional option and can help meet the needs of the busy diver. This option can be added and combined to either the private class or the standard class options. Atlantis Divers has incorporated the world's most popular scuba certification E-Learning courses and recognizes the NAUI, TDI and SDI E-Learning programs.

After selecting and enrolling in an eLearning system below you will begin to learn about exploring the underwater world from the comfort of home. The program presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading, short quizzes to let you gauge your progress, and the ability to review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.

eLearning is designed to be convenient and easy-to-use. You will be able to access eLearning anywhere you have a PC with an Internet connection. Also, you will be able to complete eLearning entirely on your own schedule--there are no class room times or places to meet. eLearning will keep track of your progress, and you can begin again where you left-off last time.

During the registration process or the eLearning program, you will be asked to confirm the dive shop you intend to finish your water and open water training. Simply enter Atlantis Divers and your progress and grades will be automatically sent directly to Atlantis. Your instructor at Atlantis will always be available should you have any problems or require any additional instruction. At the End of the eLearning course, simply give us a call to schedule your water and pool training. At this time you can select either private or standard training options.
