    Go to www.padi.com
    This is a nationally recognized organization for scuba divers.
    Find a dive center near you and call them to sign up for a open water class.
    You can do the book portion online now if you would like.
    After you learn what to do, you practice at a local pool.
    Lastly you take an open water check out dive. Then your certified.
    You can take more classes and get certified in more areas later on.
    Good Luck

    Hi Cardisa,

    I agree Sunny,  PADI is the world leader in dive certification.  Their dive instructs must go through the ranks to achieve instructor status.  They have a great program that allows you to split your training.  This makes it very convienent and flexible.  Do some traing near your home and later finish in a beautiful location. 
    Let me know if I can help.
