The Limitations of Online Dive Classes

Aug 17, 2007
The first thing that goes through someone's head when you tell them that you have signed up for online dive classes is usually that you must have lost your mind. After all, how can dive lessons be taken online? It is of course possible to create a website with the illusion of water, that still does not teach the mechanics of diving. But this is only because most people do not realize what is involved in learning how to dive. It isn't just the physical aspect; there's some knowledge involved too.

While it is extremely important to be taught inside and around a pool, part of learning how to dive is knowing how the equipment works, how to use it, and other similar knowledge. Rather than waste time in attending classes for topics like these, most diving instructors actually prefer it when you take online dive classes and know these things before you start the actual diving. It makes the process easier when, once in the water, the instructor does not need to explain more than how to move. Not to mention that it saves the money usually spent on time sitting inside a classroom.

Those who like to compare two different methods before deciding on one should take this into consideration. Though some people might consider it more productive to actually attend classes and learn how to deal with the equipment and science involved first hand, you are far more likely to absorb the knowledge if it is absorbed at your own pace, taking into account your time and comfort rather than that of the person doing the teaching. Online classes have the advantage of a comfortable location, not as much time loss and preferably a cup of your favorite tea or coffee placed right next to you.

Once you start the actual diving however, online dive classes will do you more harm than good. Some websites (and even some books and audio tapes) do offer step by step guides with regards to the actual diving, but since it is impossible to take your laptop and your internet connection into an actual pool, this method is usually advised against. The same applies to visual demonstrations on video cassettes. Online learning is useful, but it has its limitations. Education underwater is one of them. Save your money; leave your hardware at home and learn the actual scuba diving in the sea.
