The Ugly Truth is that many of the American-type courses that are fine for the calm warm waters of the Caribbean, simply don’t cut it here in South Africa.
Firstly, more often than not, the Course involves DVD Training or worse Online courses. These two options DO NOT give you or the Instructor any understanding into your Capabilities and Knowledge before getting into the Water.
Live interaction with a Professional, experienced and Well-Trained Instructor is imperative to you, both for enjoying the experience as well as retaining the Important information.
Secondly, it has unfortunately become too easy to become an Instructor. The Old days of having Knowledgable and Experienced Instructors is unfortunately incredibly rare as many of the skills required to be an Instructor are no longer taught, such as lecturing. Now all they are required to do is operate a DVD Machine.
Thirdly, everyone is busy. Courses have been made shorter and quicker to accommodate the busy lifestyles of our clients.
Too little time is spent in the pool getting comfortable with each piece of equipment and it is putting people off.
The tragedy is that so many people are being put off, what is perhaps one of the most fulfilling and thrilling sports available.
And so, Divetek have designed their own thorough Scuba Courses for South Africa.
