Our Goals

Diver Emergency Training is not just for divers. It's perfect for anyone who comes into contact with them - whether that be shore crew, parents, friends or the spouse that's staying high and dry, they'll find it incredibly valuable. The skills can also be transferred to every day life too, they're not confined to the water's edge.

  • OCEAN HEALTH: Keep Our Sea Trash Free

    • We make sure we bring all our divers back to land - nothing left behind!!
  • MARINE LIFE: Protect What You Love
