Knowledge: Divers Direct maintains a staff of professionally trained, certified and insured Instructors.All of our Instructors are employees of Divers Direct, and not independent contractors, which means that we satisfy all of the Instructors’ insurance requirements including Worker’s Compensation and Instructor Liability insurance. Our company has enjoyed over 25 years of an excellent safety record as well as exceptional quality control over the teaching process, which has resulted in excellent course evaluations and customer service ratings, and ultimately, an entire community of happy divers! We keep our classes small, with no more than 6 students per Instructor, to ensure a sufficient quantity and quality of attention to each individual. Our Instructors are known for their patience and understanding. We promise that they will NEVER rush you through your training or do anything to make you feel uncomfortable!
Skills: In our classes, we emphasize the concept of gaining comfort through repetition. The only way to become truly comfortable in the water is through practice, and we pride ourselves on providing the most supervised practice time in the industry. Since we employ our Instructors directly, we also have the flexibility to bring our Instructors to you. We’d be more than happy to utilize your on-site pool for training sessions, and we’re also able to accommodate a variety of scheduling arrangements and provide additional practice sessions as needed.
