Leadership Levelsleadr

Our Leadership levels are unique in the Diving Industry as we do not just train this level to supervise divers in training and act as guides as many agencies do... But we offer a number of upgrade options which can be included in the Dive Leader Certification or may be added later as training modules...

We also offer crossovers and upgrade paths for divers from other agencies with experience.  See ITDA Membership link
