There is book work, learning about the gas laws and the safety issues and a pratical part (actually diving) that you'll take in a pool or a diving quarey.

You have to be able to pass a swim test, a proficiency test both in a pool and in the ocean and you have to participate in a program that gives you about 2 days of experience with scuba diving. Further you have to read material to educate yourself on the activity.
