Who is SDI?

Scuba Diving International (SDI) was created in 1998 and grew out of the success of their sister company Technical Diving International (TDI), which specializes in the most advanced disciplines of dive training and is currently the world’s largest and most respected technical training organization.

7 reasons why being a scuba diver is the best thing ever

Both students and instructors have embraced the no nonsense approach that the SDI training system offers. SDI has streamlined the course materials to let students study the essential academics with an emphasis on practical diving skills learned in both the pool and open water environments. SDI is the only scuba training and certification agency to require students to be taught with modern dive computers from the onset of training.
SDI course materials are state-of-the-art and lavishly illustrated with photography and graphics.

Diving is constantly changing. SDI staff is always looking forward and striving to be the innovators in scuba diving education. SDI focus is to make the experience of diving be enjoyed by every family member while keeping it current.

Though it may be true that SDI is not the biggest training organization – it has defined the scuba industry by leading the charge in major innovative concepts such as eLearning, 10 year old certifications, Solo Diver Programs for those that want to be self-reliant and training and diving with dive computers from day 1 making tables a study of theory and history rather than practicality. All these ideas were at one point viewed as “silly” or “dangerous” and they have now become the norm with all major training organizations following the trend years after.  Get certified at Aquaworld today with SDI and start living the dream!
