Ours is an all-inclusive price (no hidden charges) including student textbook and class materials, pool use, Instructor fees, rental of the SCUBA Hard Gear (Buoyancy Compensator Device BCD, SCUBA regulator system including submersible pressure gauge, instrument console, and two second-stage regulators), SCUBA air tanks and pool air fills, rental of lead weights. No gear is needed for the orientation (first) session as the instructor will advise you on what gear you need to buy. Students must pass a basic swim test and all students must fill out a student medical form to determine your fitness to dive. In some cases, you may be asked to bring the medical form to your family doctor to get his/her signature confirming that you are fit to dive. Early registration is highly recommended.

The rental of hard gear for the two days in Monterey is also included in the class dues. Minors welcome with a parent/guardian also enrolled in the class. Minors may still enroll in this class without parent also enrolling but a parent or legal guardian must be present during the course of the class, assisting minor on the surface. Upon request, students may also choose to get certified in a warm-water destination using an Instructor referral form.
