Scuba divers are required to undergo a training and certification course before they are allowed to go on diving expeditions. In fact, no reputable diving shop will sell or rent any equipment to a diver unless they are able to prove that they know how to use diving equipment properly and dive safely and responsibly. Scuba certification cards are said to be more difficult to get than a library card, but easier to earn than a driver's licence.

There are number of scuba diver certification agencies with a number of diving instructors, schools and dive courses in the world. PADI (the Professional Association of Diving Instructors) is probably the biggest and most popular diving course in the world. PADI classes are generally considered to be ideal for holiday makers interested only in holiday scuba diving, as their training certification requirements are easier on beginners than programmes offered by other certification agencies. PADI training certification courses and qualified instructors are available at most dive locations in the world, and they are also very involved in marine conservation, as well as the promotion of scuba diving as a sport.
