Congratulations on completing the classroom and pool diving portion of your PADI Open Water Scuba Diver Course at Huron Scuba (PADI 5-Star Dive Center S-20440)! This checklist discusses the process for completing your PADI Open Water Diver Certification by referral. Upon successful completion, you will earn your PADI Open Water Diver certification card. If you purchased Huron Scuba's Complete Open Water Diver Package, referral services and all required adminstrative support are included.    
Referral Dives Information:
   [  ]
Huron Scuba will recommend a dive operator, hotel, restaurants, etc. on all islands where we have experience. Ask for an appointment with one of our travel experts. We can also arrange your hotel or dive packages to assure the best quality and value based upon our experience. Remember, travel bookings paid through Huron Scuba also earn Dive Team Rewards!
   [  ] Your Referral Instructor will require that you successfully perform all of the diving skills you acquired in the pool. You will also be taught to use your compass underwater. If you do not feel ready for certification dives, contact us immediately to schedule additional instruction. If it has been several months since your pool dives, a refresher course is strongly encouraged to improve your comfort, safety, and likelihood of success during your open water dives.

We highly recommend that you upgrade your DAN Student Insurance to regular status before your dives because the student insurance provides limited coverage and expires as soon as you complete your last certification dive. Call DAN at 1-800-446-2671 and tell them you want to upgrade your student membership; use Sponsor Code #414981.

So that we may complete our paperwork and get your feedback on your certification instructor, please stop by to tell us about your dives and let us copy your logbook pages for your file. Your original instructors care about your ultimate success and may call you to follow up.

You have earned the first half of the prestigious PADI Open Water Diver certification card, which is a terrific accomplishment. Insist that your Referral Instructor be a trained professional who lets you prove to yourself that you are ready! You have hired them for their expertise and you should expect nothing less than a thorough Open Water evaluation to build confidence in these essential skills in case they are needed.
