I think a couple of guys on The Forum dive. I got certified back in 1987,when you had to learn dive tables and I think the program was developed,in some part by the Navy. Where will you do your checkout dives?

It's much easier nowadays. We have 16 hours theory and training in a tank here in Austria. Open water dives will be on the Maldives early next year. We will then receive an i.a.c. Open Water Diver license.

We did not dive today as we are flying tomorrow....

But we did a lot of diving, saw some firsts for us, and had some "oh-fuck" moments......

You need approx 24 hours after diving before you can fly to get the Nitrogen out of your system.
