Welcome!

DIVESAFE... DIVESMART... 
At this very moment, specially trained HANDICAPPED SCUBA ASSOCIATION instructors are training and certifying people with disabilities all over the world.
You are invited to join this elite group of dedicated Instructors and Buddy Divers!!

The Buddy Disability Training Course has been taught to dive professionals all over the world from Australia to China and all over the United States and Carribbean.

 

The HSA course for instructors & buddies is very unique and has compiled the best practices that exist in the field of disabled dive training from organizations both in and out of the dive industry…..like the Handicapped Scuba Association, SDI’s “Scubility” program, PADI distinctive specialty & more.

 

In just five action-packed days, you will learn about a variety of disabilities, what accessibility means as well as go thru empathy training so you will know what it is like to dive with a disability.  During a full day of lecture you will be introduced to over 14 types of disabilities, HSA training procedures and multilevel certification, special considerations for classroom and in-water training, equipment and accessibility. During a full day of confined water training, you will dive as a paraplegic with your legs tied together.  You'll wear a blacked out mask so you can relate to diving blind, and be put into typically problematic training scenarios to experience what divers with impairments will experience.

 

As a SCUBA Instructor, you teach your students to do what you do.  If you haven't experienced what they will experience, you do not have the tools to teach them.  This training will give you the tools.  Student logistics can change significantly when disabilities are introduced into your tried-and-true training procedures.  The half-day open water training will prepare you to be flexible when you are conducting open water training and dive planning.
