Why should you start this diving course?
Diving course? It’s useless to count all the reasons! How inappropriate to call our planet Earth, while it`s clearly an Ocean? Only 30% of the surface is not covered by water. Would you like to get 1/3 of your meal in a restaurant, 1/3 of your drink and 1/3 of your salary? No? So why do you limit your world to the 30%? Scuba diving gives you the access to the 70%! Underwater you will find a completely different world, with astonishing life forms, vivid colours and breathtaking beauty. It doesn`t really matter if you are moved by wonderful and colourful reefs, gloomy wrecks with their tragic history or you prefer calm and green depths of our lakes. Water has stolen many hearts and for many people the diving course became just a beginning of a great adventure!
What will you learn on diving course?
Diving course is divided into three different and complementary parts that provides you the skills and knowledge. The first part is theory, where you will learn how diving and breathing with compressed air affects our bodies, what kind of rules apply underwater, how we can plan and conduct our dives safely, taking in account different environmental conditions, decompression obligations and our gear.
The second parts takes place in confined waters, in comfortable and safe conditions where you learn new skills. You will get acquainted with dive gear and you will learn to breath and to regulate your buoyancy until obtaining the neutral one. You will also practice many skills that will be necessary during the open water sessions.
The third part takes place on open waters. You will do real dives and master your newly gained skills in real conditions. After this course you will have appropriate skills and knowledge to plan and conduct safe and pleasant dives with your buddies.

THE BEST STANDARDS of
PADI, IDF and IANTD Federation on Recreation and Technical level on our diving courses
The PADI Federation diving course
PADI Divers carry the most respected and sought after scuba diving credentials in the world. No matter where you choose to dive, your PADI certification card will be recognized and accepted. In fact, on most scuba diving adventures, you’ll be surrounded by other PADI Divers who made the same certification choice you did – to train with the world’s largest and most respected scuba diving training organization.
How is PADI diving course Different?
Education – The PADI System of diver education is the most instructionally solid system in diving. PADI courses are designed to make learning enjoyable and worthwhile. Under the guidance of your professional PADI Instructor, you gain confidence while mastering important safety concepts and skills. PADI Instructors are trained and held to diving’s highest standards, backed up by a solid, proactive quality management system.
Performance-Based Learning – You progress at your own pace as you demonstrate mastery of specific performance requirements essential to becoming a scuba diver. You must earn your PADI certification, but you do so in an encouraging and well-supported learning environment.
Educational Materials – Credentialed instructional designers use state-of-the-art technology and learning theories to create PADI materials with you, the student diver, in mind. Independent study materials, available in a variety of media – online programs, tablet-based apps, manuals, workbooks, multimedia discs, etc. – allow you to learn in a way that works for you. Instructional support materials allow your PADI Instructor to further explain important concepts and verify understanding.
Educational Standards – All PADI programs, from entry-level through scuba instructor training, fall under strict educational standards monitored for worldwide consistency and quality. PADI takes a proactive approach to quality management and randomly surveys PADI Divers to confirm their courses meet PADI’s high standards as well as the divers’ expectations. No other diver training organization works to maintain this level of professional reliability and integrity.
Continuing Diver Education – The fun and enjoyment of being a confident scuba diver is fueled by continuing to improve your scuba skills. Each PADI course builds on the previous one, teaching you skills and techniques when you’re ready to learn them. PADI specialty courses let you explore specific dive interests. Professional-level courses let you live the scuba diving lifestyle by becoming a divemaster or scuba instructor.
College Credit and Vocational Training – The unsurpassed quality of PADI materials, and the educational validity of PADI courses, have been independently acknowledged by international educational and vocational training authorities. You may be able to earn college credit for certain PADI courses, or receive vocational training recognition toward national certificates.
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Standards Compliant – PADI diving course are certified as compliant with ISO standards for Recreational Diving Services by an independent auditor, the European Underwater Federation and the Austrian Standards Institute. The ISO standards (see chart below) relate to five levels of diver, two levels of instructor and a service provider or dive center. Each of these standards equate to a PADI certification or member level, which means that, in effect, divers or members holding one of these qualifications can also be said to have met the requirements of the relevant ISO standard – as though they had gained two credentials at once.

IANTD Federation diving course
International Association of Nitrox Divers, IAND, was formed in 1985 in response to the needs of the diving public. Up until that time, mixed gas diving and the use of decompression gasses was limited, in a formal way, to military and commercial divers.
In 1985, Dick Ruthkowski, retired as the dive supervisor for the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA, and, together with other leaders in the diving community, formed IAND. Dick’s goal was to introduce the benefits of using Nitrox in many diving situations and to begin teaching safe decompression diving.
In 1991, under the leadership of Tom Mount, the organization grew into the leading technical training organization in the world, offering courses covering all aspects of sport diving. At the same time, the name was changed to the International Association of Nitrox and Technical Divers, IANTD, to better reflect the organization’s additional emphasis technical diving.
Today, IANTD has offices in over twenty five countries and instructors in more than 60 countries.
Train divers is what IANTD does best!

WHO WE ARE
We has been at the cutting edge of diver training for more than 30 years. From the first nitrox course in the world to our Tek Lite programs which allow for reduced narcosis in the entry-level tech depth range, through to CCR Cave and Expedition Trimix, we’ve been setting the standard since the very beginning.
We offer a complete range of training courses from Open Water Diver through to Expedition Trimix using both open and closed circuit equipment and a full range of cave diver training programs. Our instructor trainers and instructors represent some of the very best technical divers and educators in the USA and all over the world.
All our programs, from entry level upwards, equip a diver with the skills and knowledge to become a safe, responsible, self-sufficient diver, in depth survival skills mentally and physically. It’s a philosophy reflected in our Open Water Nitrox Diver course – why not start with the safety benefits of Nitrox from your very first dive? – and continues throughout all our training programs.
In 1985, we released the world’s first enriched air diver certification – 10 years before other agencies followed suit. Since then, we’ve stayed at the very forefront of diver education, leading the way so that others may follow.
