DIPSI Graduation 2015

A huge CONGRATULATIONS to the students at Auckland Scuba, Albany, on completing their Diploma in Professional Scuba Instruction (DIPSI). Emily, Blair and Mitchell from the Whangaparaoa Peninsula. There was a 100% completion rate from everyone who began the full-time course way back in February 2015.

After a lot of hard work and dedication (and heaps of fun diving) our students head in to the work force as PADI Scuba Instructors, with 5 specialty ratings (Nitrox, Wreck, Deep, Oxygen Provider, Navigation), Medic First Aid Instructors and Emergency First Response Instructors.

“The 9 month course was a life changing experience that I will never forget! It made me more confident. The instructors helped us through everything.

Thanks for everything and I would recommend it to everyone!!

MITCH…
“These 9 months have been the time of my life. I’ve never had so much fun. The instructors helped us get through everything. I’d do it again if I could.”

BLAIR…
“Awesome course, awesome instructors, awesome experience. Feel really confident as an instructor and already have my first job interview in the Bay of Islands”

JAYDEN…
“I would highly recommend this course to any of my friends. Nick and Steph have been the best instructors and really helpful, not just with course stuff but outside problems, especially Steph.”

“This has been awesome, life changing and given me so much confidence. I am looking at life differently and have made life long friends.”

JARROD…
“I would like to thank Grant, Shailina, Steph and last but not least Poppa Nick. This year has changed my life and I can now say that I am living the dream. Seeing all the fish and massive smiles on all our dive buddies faces makes all the days studying worthwhile. Thank you for the amazing year from the bottom of my heart”
