21 days of lock down …. with no diving ….. what are we to do ? 

DIVETEK HAS THE ANSWER FOR YOU

 

As announced by our president, South Africa will be put under a 21 day lock down, where we will be confined to our houses. This means 21 days of no diving.

To help our clients during this period, we have launched our ecology courses for online studies only at a discounted rate. Take this time to learn something new and expand your diving knowledge

 

We have 6 ecology courses that will be offered for clients to make use of during this period:

  • Fish Identification
  • Coral identification
  • Manta Ecology
  • Turtle Ecology
  • Shark ecology
  • Marine ecology

Normal price for our ecology course: R1800 per course

During this period of lock down, these courses will be offered at 25% off

 

How will the courses be run ?

First thing you need to do is choose which course you want to do. You can choose more then one course and really take this time to learn as much as you can to make your diving a better experience. Once you have chosen a course, you can contact us on training@divetek.co.za to sign up and pay. You will then need to log on and create a profile for your self on MY SSI, where your course material will be loaded.

Once your course material has been loaded on your MY SSI profile, you can begin your journey to become a more knowledgable diver. During this time you will read over each section and do the short questions that are then provided to you. To support you with your learning, our instructors will provide you with any additional information that we think will help you with your learning, as well as the chance to chat to them via e mail or even skype.

Once you have completed your online learning and feel confident with the knowledge you have gained, you can contact us and set up a time for when the shut down is over for you to come in and write your exam
