ITI Instructor Affiliation
The SCUBA dive industry has a long record of ANNUALLY visually inspecting cylinders. This is commonly referred to as the VIP. Cylinder training services has a strong association within this industry. Since so may dive stores, instructors and technical divers request this course, we have developed an instructor training program designed specifically for them, and administered through International Training (SDI/TDI/ERDI).
We offer Instructor level classes to teach the International Training Incorporated (ITI) curriculum in Cylinder Visual Inspections.
The costs are all inclusive; instructor materials (text and PowerPoint USB), student text, instructor training manual, registration and certification.
Instructors are required to attend both the Instructor class as well as the Student class but only pay the one fee. The purpose of attending the student class is to witness and participate in the program, see how the new program flows and assist with the training. The instructor class goes over the logistics of the teaching, marketing and answers any questions that are specific to instructors and how to make this program work.
There are two training options; current ITI instructors and those dive instructors wishing to cross over to SDI/TDI/ERDI. Affiliated refers to those persons or facilities associated with ITI (SDI/TDI/ERDI).
