Training and certification

The unique ITDA Diver Training and Certification International Standards, offer a great opportunity and very effective base for "Club Diver" programs to develop in environments like: Schools, Colleges, Universities, Company Social Clubs and even local swimming pools.

What is the Difference Between Club Diver Certifications and International Certifications?rib

Generally the CLUB SYSTEMS are based on local needs, and clubs are operated by national not-for profit organisations like the BSAC (British Sub Aqua Club or the SAA (Sub Aqua Association) in the UK.

Many Clubs across Europe and the World are CMAS Affiliated. For example like FEDAS in Spain.

Clubs tend to offer scuba certifications over longer time periods with weekly, bi-weekly or monthly training sessions and weekend Open Water training in Lakes or Quarries / Inland water area's, and / or Diving Training Tours for "Open Water Certification"... 

The International System is more Resort Based with divers attending training at dive centres or resort schools in just a few days, when on vacation or on diving holidays.club_diving
