Now that you have made it through the hard part, it is time to have some fun, making the most out of your course offering. 

Enroll in your Specialty Instructor Training course, a 3-day, 9-dive weekend full of fun and education. In our 3 days together, you will earn anywhere from 6-12 Specialty Instructor ratings*. You need 5 in order to become a Master Scuba Diver Trainer (in addition to certifying 25 students).

 

This program has less homework, takes less time and is filled with less stress, while providing tons of diving.

The Specialty Instructor Training course will give you the ratings, skills and knowledge to teach each of the specialties you choose (your choice of specialties based on environment opportunities).

 

By completing this program, you can add 12 specialty ratings to your resume, while constantly having fresh programs to keep your divers coming back.

COURSE DATES


Please, contact a Blue Horizons Training Consultant for details. Call to schedule your class today, or click the e-mail button, below.


Scuba Tune-Up classes are conducted every first Saturday of each month. Call to schedule your class, today or send us an e-mail.


Are you a certified diver who hasn’t been able to get in the water enough —too much work, not enough play?

Join us on the first Saturday of each month (excludes December and January) for $10 Bubbles and a Beer. For $10, any certified diver can join us in the pool. Tank is included. Don’t have your own gear yet? For another $10 you will get an entire scuba kit to use.

Cylinder and weights are included with first $10.

Right after the event, we will head to one of the local watering holes/restaurants to grab a beer, some food & hang out. The restaurant will be a family-friendly establishment, welcoming those who can drink beer, as well as those who can only drink root beer. For those who want to drink beer, proper ID and legal age are required.

Come as often as you like; we would love to see you. Blowing bubbles is always a great time, even if it’s just in the pool. Please call to sign up so we know how many are coming.
