Good day all. I'm a 38 yr old dad of 3. My 10 yr old somehow got the itch to dive, i have zero experience other than snorkeling on vacation. Any info. or site's you might know of, would really help. I live in SW Arkansas and we have many deep clear water lakes around so finding a place to dive should not be a problem. Thanks Cadillac

Take a look at either www.padi.com or www.naui.org Those are the 2 largest and most widely recognised training agencies in the world. They are far from the only ones and there are plenty of good training agencies out there but those 2 are almost always the most readily available. Both offer Junior Certification courses for kids beginning at age 10.

Both sites offer an instructor locator to aid you in locating an instructor nearest you! Have fun!
