SCUBA BSA 05/25/2019..
This is an introductory/try-it scuba experience that does not result in scuba certification. It covers the requirements of the Scuba BSA Award. It is not the Scuba Diving merit badge, and it does not result in certification for diving on your own.
Scuba BSA introduces participants to the special skills, equipment, and safety precautions associated with scuba diving, encourages aquatics activities that promote fitness and recreation, and provides a foundation for those who later will participate in more advanced underwater activities.
The Scuba BSA experience contains two parts— Knowledge Development and Water Skills Development. During the first part, participants learn basic dive safety information and overview skills to be used during their water experience. The Water Skills Development session introduces essential dive skills, such as mask clearing, regulator clearing, and alternate air source use.
NOTE: This is an introductory, try-it scuba experience. Many people decide to go on and take a certification course after trying this scuba experience.
