Our mission is to create professional divers from the first time a student enrolls in our introductory PADI Open Water Diver course until they retire from diving. We are committed to continuous professional development, and we stand behind our training program and our students.
As part of our commitment to excellence, we guarantee the following items as part of any program. We feel these are basic ethical business practices and encourage our customers to provide feedback if they find areas that need improvement.
All certifications are issued by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), the world’s largest ocean exploration and diver organization, operating in 186 countries and territories, with a global network of more than 6,600 dive centers and resorts and over 128,000 professional members worldwide. Issuing more than 1 million certifications each year, and with over 29 million certifications to date, PADI is a symbol of responsible adventure, recognized and respected as the authority in diving by consumers globally.
Our mission is not simply to create divers with a professional certification, our mission is to create professional divers. A key difference between the two is that our graduates are provided training, resources, and a network of professionals beyond the diving industry who are invested in their success. Anyone who successfully completes our program, has the tools and knowledge to be able to start and run their own business, or integrate into an already existing system and understand the "bigger picture" of the business side of diving.
Once candidates copmlete our program and receive their PADI professional certification, they are immediately able to access and apply for jobs on the PADI job board as well as with local shops. Dive shops all over the world are in constant need of professional divers and are hiring continuously.
Our company was founded, and is owned, by veterans and active duty miltiary members and spouses, as such we appreciate the unique lifestyle that accompanies a military family. We are proud to accept all chapters of the GI Bill® and offer discounts to military, first responders, and educators. A professional level diving certification is the first step to a lucrative side-hustle or even a career change. Many of our graduates are/were active duty or spouses and now have chosen to pursue that as their follow-on careers.
