YMCA of the USA recently announced that it will discontinue the scuba certification program on December 31, 2008.
YMCA of the USA has offered the scuba program for fifty years, and it has touched the lives of many YMCA members and volunteers. We are proud to have had the opportunity to prepare and certify so many participants for safe and responsible diving.
Although the scuba program will close, the lifetime scuba certification will remain valid and YMCA of the USA will continue to assist those with fulfillment of a lost certification card from 1984 to the present. If you received your YMCA Scuba certification prior to 1984, you will need to retake the Scuba course or take a refresher course as fulfilling a lost card that was received prior to 1984 is no longer a service we will offer. We apologize for the inconvenience.
