The Dive Tech Difference

Dive Tech and Sports Instructors teach the academics of diving by using our own Total Teaching System, which includes manuals, study guides, videos, teaching outlines and other support material. The system utilizes repetition of information to address the different ways people learn. In your classes you will learn by seeing, reading, hearing, repeating, and doing. Our system is the natural way to learn, and has proven to be a highly effective teaching methodology. The personalized instruction we provide results in a higher level of confidence in overall diving ability, which allows you to focus on why you wanted to learn to dive - to have a great time diving!

We know you will find our system clear, concise, and enjoyable. You’ll look forward to each successive chapter and video as you take your first step toward becoming a trained, certified diver.

Our proven philosophy for teaching water skills is Comfort Through Repetition, a sensible teaching method involving continuous practice of "real world" diving skills. By practicing skills repeatedly until they develop, students become comfortable under water and really enjoy diving.

Dive Tech and Sports offers our own private, heated pool to practice your SCUBA skills in. Whether you are a first time diver or a 30 year veteran, you are always welcome to come brush up on your diving skills at any of our classes.

Dive Tech and Sports also utilizes state of the art training classrooms. Each classroom provides the ideal environment for learning with everything from white boards to video projection systems. Our comfortable chairs and climate controlled rooms allow you to relax and enjoy your learning experience.
