As in most forms of education, the right teacher is an important component for success. Thus it is worth a bit of research to select the right scuba instructor. Speak with people in your community who are already certified, and ask for their recommendations. Often a college, university, or the local YMCA will have a good scuba certification course. Call or visit the dive stores in your area and interview them for both credentials and attitude. Look for a scuba instructor who is experienced and professional, but not egotistical. The scuba learning experience should be properly organized, careful, safe, and fun as well.
