Courses We Offer

RU4Scuba offers a variety of classes from both Scuba Schools International (SSI) and PADI. Once certified you can take any of our specialty or advanced courses regardless of the agency that processed your initial certification. We can also complete checkout/referral dives if you have already completed your academics and pool sessions elsewhere. Browse our most popular courses below,  check our calendar for existing classes, sign up through our online shop, or contact us if you have questions.

Our courses have two parts: (1) e-learning to cover the academic portion and (2) hands-on training with an instructor. When you sign up for a class, we then will match you with an instructor who can meet at a time and place convenient for you. We schedule training primarily in Williamson, Penfield, Scottsville, Sodus and Avon.
