The only additional cost is that to obtain your diving medical which is payable directly to the doctor during your visit. Upon enrolment you will be sent your introduction pack which will include details on how to register and begin your online home study. At your own pace you can complete the home study portion of the course. Once you have completed your home study you are ready to book in to complete your classroom session where you will spend two evenings reviewing and building on the the theory you have learnt during your home study brushing up on any areas that you may have had difficulty with an ****).
