Copeland’s SCUBA SCHOOL
Open Water Class Information

       Copeland’s began teaching SCUBA in 1958, before any of the national certification agencies existed. When the first national SCUBA standards were presented in 1960, the standards Copeland’s had developed greatly exceeded these new national standards. Copeland’s has always taught above the national minimum standard, teaching skills and information we feel too valuable to omit. The classes are limited to 6 students, allowing for more individual attention. Pool training is done in a 14 1/2 foot deep swimming pool, allowing sufficient depth to properly learn to clear your ears and develop proper buoyancy skills.

   The Open Water Checkouts are done at inland lakes, or can be done on one of our Caribbean trips.
The best way to learn is in your own SCUBA equipment and the least expensive training program is to buy your Fins, Mask and Snorkel Package and SCUBA System at Copeland's and save $500 on training.
Then, learn to use it with proper instruction and supervision in class.  

                         Copeland’s has been keeping SCUBA fun and safe for over 58 years.
