Students are assessed by demonstrating that they meet measurable learning objectives through the concept of performance-based learning. The course combines classroom, pool, and open-water participation to successfully meet certification requirements. Other topics in the course include diver safety, the aquatic environment, health for diving, programming, teamwork, presentation skills, and research projects.
