Over the last few years, more and more scuba diving professionals have been taking a closer look at the different options available to them through International Training.
From recreational sport diving to cutting-edge technical training, International Training has been continues to be the forerunner in the shaping of scuba diving.
Scuba Diving International (SDI), Technical Diving International (TDI) and Emergency Response Diving International (ERDI) all work as standalone agencies, or in conjunction, based on your training needs.
The Dive Place is pleased to offer the various International Training; SDI, TDI, and ERDI crossover programs that allows Divemasters (DM), Assistant Instructors (AI), and Instructors to become a certified dive professional within the International Training system.
You must hold an equivalent rating with a recognized organization. Crossover candidates must provide verification they they are in active teaching status and in good standing with the orginization they are crossing over from. Please note that if a crossover candidate is not currently in active teaching status, additional requirements may apply.
All leadership applications are subject to review and approval of International Training’s Training Department.
The ITI Professional Familiarization Program makes it possible to complete all academic requirements for a SDI/TDI/ERDI Dive Professional. This is the first step for an individual who is current with another recognized SCUBA certification agency to crossover to Scuba Diving International (SDI), Technical Diving International (TDI) or Emergency Response Diving International (ERDI). You will only have to complete this familiarization once, even if you are crossing over to more than one of these agencies.
