How do you get a scuba certification?
You will need to train with a certified SCUBA company. PADI and BSAC are two of the best known. Try their websites for local dive clubs which will run training couses.
This order is the regular certification, the Advanced Diving certification, and the Rescue Diving certification.
If you are not certified No you cannot rent scuba gear
It depends on both the certification agency, the certification and when you got it. Most last forever and do not expire.
This depends in most areas. In the US, you can scuba dive at 14 and get a Junior Scuba Certification, but you would need a certified adult with you. However, at 16, you would get a regular certification. In the Caribbean, you need to be 16 to scuba dive. In other areas the age limit depends, but in most places it is around 14 or 16.
Expect to pay around $300-$500 for the course leading up to the scuba diving certification.
Yes, but regional differences may vary as to 'how often'...

The interesting thing about scuba diving, is legally, there are no licenses or certifications required. The problem arises, however, that while scuba is an extremely safe sport, some training is required to make it safe. And from a liability standpoint, dive shops, and dive resorts will not rent gear, or take people diving unless they can show a scuba license (or C-Card - certification card) from a recognized training agency. You can take classes locally… Read More
This really depends on who you ask to certify you. However there are some standard excersises that you have to do to pass the course. There is the snorkel clear, there is the mask and mouth clear, second stage breathing device retrieval, safety check, BC check, swim test, basic rescue, and the certification dives. These are the excersises that I did for my certification, but every certification is slightly different.
