New divers consider the actual dive training/courses cost when they ask the big question. It is undoubtedly one of the costs that go into your training, but not all of it. When you are diving for the first time, you might not be aware of the other costs of learning scuba diving. 

All scuba diving certification consists of three components in each course:
