Dates were formally announced today by the Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation Departments Underwater Unit for the 2004 Underwater Instructor Certification Course (UICC). Started in 1954, UICC is the oldest and most respected instructor-training course in scuba today.
The current UICC program, the most thorough available in diving, is a 14 week course designed to challenge and prepare candidates to safely open the underwater world to new aqua-explorers. This singularly unique program features over 150 hours of intensive training. With over 90 hours of pool and ocean training, the program also features 60 hours of classroom lecture and training featuring top experts in the science and theory of diving such as Dr. Glenn Egstrom, Jim Stewart, Karl Huggins, and Jeff Bozanik.
The pre-test for 51 UICC will be held Saturday, December 13 at Victoria Park Pool in Carson and Sunday, December 14 at Redondo Beach, Veteran’s Park. Both sessions will begin at 8:00 a.m. There is no charge for the pre-test and full-ocean gear is required.
The formal program begins Saturday, January 10 at the prestigious Los Angeles Athletic Club in Downtown Los Angeles at 8:00 a.m.
