Best Answer

Recreational Scuba divers only need to undertake a short course to be qualified (or "certified" using industry jargon). The certification process for a basic open water diver normally takes about 5-6 days.

Commercial divers usually undertake some kind of vocational training, but this is not usually done through a college or university.
