Scuba diving classes are essential for anyone wanting to explore the world beneath the waves. Without certification, which is obtained when divers successfully complete a series of scuba diving classes, divers are not allowed to rent or buy dive equipment, or organise diving expeditions through travel agencies or dive shops. A typical diving course spreads lessons over two or three months, although intensive scuba courses that squeeze classes over a week or even a weekend are available. It's recommended, however, that student scuba divers opt for longer courses, as there is a lot to learn and it's very difficult to master it all and enter the water with confidence after only a few classes.

Many of the larger diving clubs offer a range of services, including training lessons for beginner divers, and advanced courses for established member to upgrade or refresh their scuba skills. The lessons that clubs offer include dive courses for kids, which are relatively cheap, up to the more expensive master diver courses for those who want to take their scuba diving to the next level. The cost of scuba diving lessons depends largely on the club, the type of course chosen and the size of the class with private classes topping the list of prices. Many clubs and schools offer free scuba diving lessons for children and beginners so that they can see if they like to dive.
