Military and Commercial Divers

We are unique in many ways in the Sports diving world as not only do we accept multi-agency instructors and divers. We also offer both Military and Commercial Divers, certifications in First-Aid, Sports Scuba and Technical diving...

ITDA Crossovers for Military or Ex-Military Diverscrossover

ITDA Understands that Military Divers and Commercial Divers have very different needs, and most often they may not have sports scuba or technical diving certifications from the mainstream agencies. We also recognise the value of higher levels of both training and theory knowledge required for "Professional Diving".

Plus of course the need for safety and not identifying yourself as a military diver.  Commercial divers may have different motives but would like to have a Sports or Technical diving certification for recreational purposes.

Options Available

We offer simply two (2) options for both Military and Commercial Divers: 1. Non-Teaching Status with no annual fees and free membership for life with ITDA basic membership package. And 2. Professional status as an ITDA Dive Leader or Instructor.

What to do?

All you need to do is to contact ITDA HQ at: admin@diveitda,com and ask about our unique crossover programs for Military or Commercial Divers and we will respond with the best options to meet your needs... ITDA HQ deals with many such applications and nothing is on record at HQ that would identify you as a military diver.  We may require a simple skills assessment based on information provided.

If you are approaching an ITDA Instructor or Trainer directly for advice, they may simply offer you a trial dive to assess and evaluate your basic skills and decide with you on the best level of certification that would suit you.

Professional Path

We want our instructors to train their students with the best programs and materials available... And because sometimes you need to offer a choice based on what training and certification your customers want and not just what you have available...

For this reason Sports and Technical divers want to simply have a choice based on what they want rather than what is available to them... So ITDA Group offers more....

Even more importantly for diving professionals, we want you to be able to provide the best needs and requirements for your students (i.e. Your Customers) and often this may require working with more than one agency as not all agencies offer a complete package to meet market needs like ITDA can...
