ITDA International Technical Diving Agency vision has been the same since 1998 and continues to be our primary objective even as our business has evolved.
The vision was to reduce diving accidents and injures through better, safer and higher education and training with a back to basics philosophy.
Our passion is simply to educate and train divers to be safer, better informed and have a basic understanding of diving physics and phsyiology also, to develop a positive attitude to marine conservation and the importance of the marine world on our blue planet
The objective of ITDA Group training is to educate, instruct and certify. Sports divers, Technical divers, Occupational divers and Specialist divers in safer diving…
Instructor Mission Statement: To ensure that all diving operations are conducted safely to standard, efficiently and to the full benefit of our students and members.
We believe: Divers should earn their credentials as safe competent divers, not just by completing a training program but by a process of continual evaluation & assessment of skills, theory and ability to be safe divers that are able to rescue their instructor if required.
(The Key, 3 C’s: Comfort – Competence – Confidence.)
Unique Business Model
We operate regionally around the world and incorporate the local culture and local standards where they exist into our training and certification programs.
We work with local training partner many of whom are exclsuive to ITDA but are not required to be, as we have an "Open Agency" policy... Accepting leaders from other agenices.
