Disabled Divers: Learn to Dive
Our Open Water Diver Course is designed to help disabled divers get their certification in diving online. The diver certification is a three-step process. First, we help you learn what you need to know to get certified. Since this is done online you can study at your own pace and you can learn from anywhere! Second, is the in-water skill-development training portion. It’s here that you will learn the actual techniques for diving. Last, but not least, you must complete four open-water dives with a supervising SDI Instructor.
Don’t forget that this (as well as our other courses) are designed to work with you. So, if you are looking for quad para scuba training or even blind diver training, we are here to help you get your diver certification.
