Years ago, learning to dive required participation in a mentorship program. As the sport developed, mentoring gave way to the certification process. In some respects, loss of the mentorship process has brought about a quick route to a learner’s permit. Unfortunately, many assume that certification implies mastery of a specific discipline of diving. For those who see beyond this assumption, the AIT program represents the true road to mastering diving.


AIT can take many forms. It may be used as a “tune-up” to prep for the next level of certification. For some it can be a review due to time away from the sport. Many apply it as a form of advanced development for a specific diving discipline. Others use it as they would a “personal trainer” for long-term benefits and results. Whatever your needs, the private instruction offered by our experts will exceed your expectations.


AIT begins with a consultation with one of our experts. This consultation will help define how you can reach your goals.  AIT considers gear selection, equipment configuration, diving skills, diving experience and academic needs. By defining these components your Advanced Individual Training can begin.


AIT delivers the “Art of Diving” one day at a time.

Jun 15th, 2015 by admin in Business ,Rebreather Diving
