Just wanted to chime in on DiVenture's Open Water Diver Certification course in Omaha...
We took our book/pool portion the beginning of July over a weekend. We felt the course was well led. The instructors never made us feel rushed or under pressure. The skills were taught at a very comfortable pace and we were constantly encouraged to ask questions or practice skills as much as we felt we needed.
We never felt like we were using subpar cheap "training" equipment. Everything appeared to be in excellent condition and there were plenty of sizes and choices to allow us to try different types of BCDs and Dive Computers.
Retail staff was very friendly and always answered our questions. They never gave the appearance of impatience and never made us feel like we were wasting their time asking questions (which I'm sure were questions they've been asked a thousand times). Inside they may have been thinking "Noob!', but outwardly they were very professional.
I would recommend DiVentures - Omaha to anyone considering an Open Water Diver certification.
