Some courses are in high demand and therefore, for these, we have prepared a page with all the information.

Course description, images, program, faq and…

…and you will also see some icons.

Let’s get to know them:

Scuba diving is not just fun and entertainment, it can also be a job!

You can work in the world of diving and freediving or get ready for other exciting jobs.

Some examples?
  • Courses you can work with in the diving world: Dive Guide, Divemaster and all higher levels. Also in freediving: Assistant Instructor, 1st level Instructor and higher levels.
  • Courses that provide you with professional level preparation and help you enter the field you love: Civil Protection Diver, Scientific Underwater Operator, Lifeguard, Archeology Diver, Marine Biology.
  • All the courses indicated above are also good for young people to make a “curriculum”. In any working field you operate, presenting additional professional qualifications can be a winning business card. But there are other courses that give this possibility, for example BLS-D, Oxygen Provider, First Aid, Use of Breathing Air Compressors, Diving Knowledge.
  • In addition, some courses expressly score in public and military competitions, such as the Open Water Diver course and the BLS-D.

Children and teenagers are the future of diving.

They will live a thousand adventures, discover new depths and make this wonderful sport evolve.

So, come on to the little ones!!!

The symbol of our Froggy Diver indicates that the course can also be attended by Juniors – or that it was created just for them!

Not all diving courses are held… in the water.

Some courses aim to broaden your theoretical knowledge, in order to become a more aware and responsible diver. They may include practice sessions, but these will be “dry”, not in the water (this is why we have chosen a hair-dyer to highlight you these courses!).

ISDA is an Italian agency and all manuals are in Italian. However, most are also available in several other languages such as English, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Russian and Arabic.
