ACUC offers “Initiation to Diving” and “Introduction to Diving”, non-certification courses, so that you can see if you like Scuba Diving before taking a full certification course (see this PDF document)for more details).

It is recommended for young people (minimum age is 12 years old) or for elder persons (no maximum age).
It has some limitations, such as for example, the maximum depth, which is 15 meters (50 feet) and as we mentioned before, the “ACUC Scuba Divers” must always be accompanied by an ACUC Divemaster or similar when they dive. Also there are some dive sites that place limitations to this type of certification. You can see the ACUC standards, course contents and requirements for this course in this PDF document.
