Pacific Islands Christian College
(25 semester hours/credits)
This 25-credit hour certificate program is designed to certify students as open water divers and then lead them through a succession of courses that would eventually qualify them to pass the instructor’s examination. Providing a program that certifies students to lead and train recreational divers will provide a new opportunity for students to return to their islands with a unique Christian education from PIU and a very marketable skill. Successful students would then be authorized by the Professional Association of Dive Instructors (PADI) to work as dive masters and will be qualified to take the instructor’s test (given only by PADI officials).
