The Los Angeles County's 52nd Underwater Instructor Certification Course Graduation Banquet was held 2 April at The Los Angeles Athletic Club to acknowledge the hard work put forth by both candidates and staff during this years program. Over the course of this years 14-week program, these candidates spent hundreds of hours in pool, lecture, and ocean time, not to mention additional hours preparing their own lectures and academic paperwork.
