SDI diving instruction by the Midwest School of Diving for the areas surrounding the Minnesota Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul out of White Bear Lake, MN.Both students and instructors have embraced the no nonsense approach that the SDI training system offers. We have streamlined the course materials to let students study the essential academics with an emphasis on practical diving skills learned in both the pool and open water environments. SDI is the only scuba training and certification agency to require students to be taught with modern dive computers from the onset of training.

 
 

SDI Solo Diver

Self Reliant Scuba without a Dive Buddy

At one point or another, many divers have found themselves alone during a dive, whether it was intentional or not. SDI’s Solo Diving is the practice of self reliant scuba diving without a “dive buddy.”

SDI Hunter/Collector Diver

Hunting and Collection of Marine Life

The purpose of this specialty course is to actively allow the student to engage in the collection of certain marine objects and to demonstrate and explain the necessary rules of underwater hunting. Prudent and conservative techniques of both aspects must be exercised. The SDI Hunter/Collector Diver Course covers the “how-to’s” of hunting and collection of marine life.

SDI Visual Inspection Procedures

Hunting and Collection of Marine Life

 

This course is designed to promote safety in the care and maintenance of high-pressure scuba cylinders. The VIP program is intended to demonstrate to the scuba industry, a need to meet and exceed the minimum standards established by the Code of Federal Regulations. In addition, it is intended to train inspectors in the proper handling, filling, and inspection techniques, including the identification of the various defective conditions that can lead to cylinder rejection or condemnation.

   

Personal instruction, Excellent price

Personal instruction, equipment they used was fairly new and well maintained.  We liked the instructor, explained everything so that we could understand...very patient with the students.  Excellent price for the open water course.
