"The only time stardard they have is the OW sessions which is 20
min. per dive. "
It would still be impossible to complete a class in 80 minutes. For one, IIRC, only two checkout dives are permitted per day for certification.
As far as classroom time goes, the videos need to be shown which each segment runs about half an hour or so. Lecture must be given as well. Finally, on top of that, confined water sessions are required as well. Oh wait, I forgot about the practice quizzes and the general question and answer period.
Prove to us that OW certification can be done in 80 minutes.
