ITDA Sports Diver Unique Training
The ITDA Sports diver training program meets the need for a short intensive and practical diving skills training and certification program but it does not offer in the time scale provided the experience level required to really be considered an experienced diver. We highly recommend getting as many guided or supervised dives as possible before diving with a buddy unsupervised.
The ITDA Sports diving program training is unique in recreational diving as it offers at this level, self rescue and buddy rescue skills and training. Plus the program also offers a much higher degree of diving theory education and knowledge, which we know will serve to make ITDA Sports divers safer and more competent.
Unlike many other agency training courses our programs are designed to maximize the students skills and abilities to the highest possible standards in the time scales provided.
Our primary focus is on the personal safety of the diver after certification, not the certification process itself and to this end our instructors may limit certifications issued to the students, at their "Safest Competent Level". i.e. Limited to their actual diving abilities. We do not issue blank certifications. See Certifications and Compare agencies. Look for Sunken Treasure!
