Scuba Q and A:

Do You Need A Diving Certification?


You need to be aware of certain specific risks and proficient in the physical protocols to effectively mitigate them.

The most assured way to confirm that you have the right knowledge and proficiency is to take a course syllabus of formal training with a qualified instructor.

You could learn by yourself, or from an unqualified friend, but you won’t know if there was a critical knowledge deficit or if you were actually incompetent due to missing or improperly learned skills.

An unknown short-fall in capacity would potentially leave you very vulnerable to a life-threatening accident.
