  Why join ITDA?

Simply because we offer so much more than most other training agencies around the world with our extensive network of Training Partners in 64 Countries (and growing...). ITDA has since 1998 offered industry leading diver training and certification programs in: Sports Scuba (recreational diving), Technical Diving, Occupational Diving, First Aid and Professional Diving, plus Higher Education from ITDA Academy.

As we came from a strong technical background based on Military and Commercial diving standards.

ITDA offer multi-agency, more flexibility, higher training and educational standards and exceed most International standards... ISO. ANSI/EN and National Standards.

ITDA Certifications Offer...

1. More Theorysurface

This the basic core of diver training, teaching basic safety use of diving equipment and use in emergency situations, in the event of equipment failure or human error.

We can all make mistakes, so we train and drill (repetitive skills to obtain a comfort level) and practice  for all known risks and hazards and even consider the unknown risks by understanding the process of "RISK ASSESSMENT"...  Of course we are not claiming 100% reduction in risk but aiming for 98-99%. 

2. More Training

We offer our professionals one of the most comprehensive guidelines in diver training with maximum flexibility, focused on nemopersonal safety, Self-Awareness and self and buddy rescue training. Over a minimum of 6 Open Water Dives (or more) to a maximum depth of 20m/66ft. Our divers are trained to be aware of the environment, conservation of reefs and marine life protection.

We can also cover basic First Aid / Oxygen/AED and CPR in our programs.

Plus advanced supervision and the management of the human factor with both dive and emergency planning using both tables and dive computers with failure drills at all levels.  We also offer integration and upgrades for our diver members with muliple certifications across disciplines, for example:  CPR First Aid and Nitrox Diver can be included as our "Open Water Scuba Diver Certification". 1 Program with 3 certs!

This above would be our "Open Water Plus+" program with added benefits of the student having three (3) cert cards and certificates if they so want for a small fee. Plus of course while student divers are having maximum fun and enjoyment of the marine world, they are learning to be safer more competent scuba divers.

3. More supervised diving experienceturtle

Most training agencies offer just 4 Open water dives required to pass / graduate the Open Water Diver Certification level and we demand a minimum of at least 6 Open water dives plus we highly recommend that our graduate divers gain more experience by way of achieving 10 Open water scuba dives before diving without supervision. 

We also examine the buddy system and the objective self-reliance system.  ITDA Divers will prove to be a cut above average for new divers as their experience, training and education are higher than most agencies train...

 ITDA Training Partners are Unique!

Simply because of the nature of our unique business model our training partners are rarely in actual competition with each other and in fact work together in most cases to promote the three (3) ideals of ITDA Education and Training which are:

  1. Promotion of Safer Diving with experience and skills assessments

  2. Higher degree of producing competent divers from entry levels with higher education and more skills

  3. Support from ITDA HQ, web, Social Media and also local support from our ITDA Network of partners

coldThis reduces competition and actively encourages a supportive and nurturing team environment... "Good for our Students"
