DiveWell coaches offer individualized education, equipment selection strategies, and dive travel planning to meet your specific needs.
A traditional retail dive shop provides training as a means to drive equipment sales. The basic certification agencies emerged to support that business model, minimizing liability while allowing equipment retailers to drive sales through training. This approach has many drawbacks for the individual diver. The instructor who should objectively teach optimal equipment selection is constrained by the shop’s dependence on equipment sales revenue and necessarily limited selection. A diver’s development becomes a means of ensuring often unnecessary or duplicative equipment sales. Training time becomes an expense to be minimized, or broken up into multiple and often contradictory classes. Profitable gadgets replace costly skills development. Training standards, established by the basic agencies, steadily decline to ensure an expanding customer base.
