Professional Development in Diving Sciences
We have over the years focused our enthusiasm for diving on the development of superior diver training. Althoughwe now exclusively train through IANTD, we have had the fortune to teach PADI, TDI/SDI, DAN, SSI and NASDS programs. We have also been fortunate to be involved in the development of many IANTD training manuals, materials and were part of the SSI XTR Development Team.
“This experience along with my tenures as IANTD National Director and Board of Advisors, the Canadian Coast Guard SAR and Dive Rescue program and a member of the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team, has provided me with a unique perspective on diver development at all levels of training. My approach to Diver and Instructor training is to provide the best possible environment necessary to develop one into a competent, qualified and skilled diver or instructor.” ~ Bill Nadeau

When it comes to instructing safe boating programs we apply the same commitment and philosophies that we do to promoting diving sciences. There is a massive gap between what it takes to obtain the basic boat license (PCOC) and actually being competent and confident out in the water. The existing boat operator’s licensing system still has room to improve. Recreational boat operators are not provided many opportunities (outside of a CPS-EPS program) to fully understand what their responsibilities are when operating pleasure crafts. Having seen first hand the deadly consequences of this shortfall, and we are passionate about contributing to safe boating programs and training programs.
Supporting a collaborative effort undertaken by the RCMP, CPS-EPS, Transport Canada and Transport Canada’s Office of Boating, we have committed to doing our part by creating programs to promote Safe Boating and Compliance, conducting workshops throughout British Columbia and bringing Industry members together.
If you are interested in hosting a Safe Boating Program or if you want to know more about the legal obligations you have as a vessel owner or operator, contact us today. We are here to support you and keep the waters safe.
professional development IN Ocean Sciences
To begin, choosing a coach is not just about qualifications, it’s about his or her approach or philosophy to the subject matter he or she is teaching. As leaders in marine and diving sciences we are ambassadors of the industry. No one else is in a better position to represent the value and necessity of solid training, equipment and practice.
Oceans Protection Initiative
Our planet depends on a healthy ocean ecosystem. Ocean and Nautical Sciences play a big role in communicating that message. We have an obligation to understand the nature of the environment we are exploring, to protect it and ensure the ecological sustainability is preserved. This effort has to extend beyond borders and is everyone’s responsibility. We support any effort that works toward protecting the ocean.
