Introduction to Professional & Scientific Diving
Professional diving covers a wide range of fields, from science to applied technology to fish-farming. This introductory course will provide basic learning skills for future applications in professional training as a scientific diver, commercial diver or recreational diving instructor.
Training will be through a combined series of lectures, practical activities in confined water, and final dives in open water. The curricula is based on the same standards and quality of information provided to the professional scientific divers as recognized by the American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS).
Students who complete the course and pass the end exam will receive an Open Water Certification endorsed by NAUI (National Association of Underwater Instructors) that is one of the oldest and most respected diving organizations in the world.
