Busy schedule?  We get it.  Life gets busy and it’s hard to find the time.  That’s why we are please to offer eLearning courses.  Take the entire academic session online and then join us for your pool and dives.  Follow the link below or click here to begin your course.  Register through Midwest Scuba and have at it!  Once completed, we will receive confirmation and you can continue on with the course.   (oh and sorry, there’s no online version of the pool and open water dive session.  We’re sure someone is working on it though.)  Even though you’ve completed your course online, feel free to come in the shop, call or email and ask any questions you may have.  We’d love to hear from you.


There’s no reason to delay! In as little as two weeks, you can become a certified PADI Open Water Diver, the most widely recognized and respected rating in the world that never expires. By taking a PADI Open Water course you’ll learn the fundamentals of scuba diving including dive equipment and techniques. Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Open Water Diver certification. If you are between 10 and 14 or have a child between these ages, there is a PADI Junior Open Water Diver program available. Minimum age is 10.

Certification is just 3 easy steps …

1. Classroom training.
When you register for class, you’ll be given a PADI Open Water Crew Pak which includes a DVD, the student manual, the Recreational Dive Planner, dive log book pages and a student record file. Prior to attending class, you’ll watch the DVD, read the student manual, and complete the knowledge reviews for each chapter. In class, Midwest Scuba’s certified instructors will go over the knowledge reviews, demonstrate equipment and answer questions.
