Jacksonville, Florida - Commercial Diving Academy of Jacksonville, Florida has officially launched its new division: The NAUI Pro Career Training Institute. In keeping with the company’s mission, the NPCTI strives to produce the best professional divers worldwide. The candidates attending the Scuba Instructor Program will receive the same world-class training and education that has been the key to the success of the commercial diving program. “There is a lack of quality educators in the recreational diving industry,” says Captain Ray Black, company president. “We train high-quality employees to meet the needs of dive operators.”


The four-week Total Immersion program is intensive and unmatched. During this three-phase program, students eat, sleep, and breathe diving education. Upon completion and passing the final review, the certified instructors are ready for their successful new career.


This program is made possible by CDA’s acquisition of 40 Fathom Grotto, the ultimate diver training facility (the deepest freshwater diving facility in the Southeast). The facility is going through extensive renovations; among the completed projects are all new docks, bathhouse, and the Diver’s Lodge.


Students reside full-time at the facility allowing them to focus on becoming professional diving educators. The real-world experience includes training student divers from all across the United States. This hands-on experience prepares the NPCTI graduate to be an asset to any prospective resort or retail establishment they choose.


The NAUI Pro Career Training Institute will be exhibiting at the 2007 DEMA Show, booth (#1092) and launching their new referral program, the Gold Star Program.


This program is exclusive to dive retailers, and is designed to help grow their overall business. Scott Evans, Division Manager stated, “ Many retailers spend so much time running the business they find there isn’t a lot of time left for training their own staff members. Our goal is to develop a strong partnership with retailers and help them create instructors who make a difference in the bottom line.”


When a retailer refers a student for the program, the Institute trains student instructor to become competent, qualified dive professionals - plus sends the referring retailer $1,000 referral bonus.
