Teach SCUBA Diving with SDI TDI ERDI
Over the last few years, more and more scuba diving professionals have been taking a closer look at the different options available through International Training. From recreational sport diving to cutting-edge technical training and on through public safety diving practices, International Training has been a forerunner in shaping these three areas of scuba diving. Scuba Diving International (SDI), Technical Diving International (TDI) and Emergency Response Diving International (ERDI) all work as standalone agencies, or in conjunction, based on your training needs.
We are accepting new members… find out how!
The International Training; SDI, TDI, and ERDI crossover program allows Divemasters (DM), Assistant Instructors (AI), and Instructors to become a certified dive professional within the International Training system if they hold an equivalent rating with an organization recognized by the World Recreational Scuba Training Council (WRSTC), European Underwater Federation (EUF), and International Standards Organization (ISO).
In recognition of this, International Training has developed an equivalency table to outline the qualifications International Training will accept as a crossover, so long as the member is in good standing with their current organization.
It should be noted, this list is subject to change without any notice. Please do not download, take screen captures, or copy this information as it’s available through the website allowing viewers to have the most up-to-date information. All leadership applications are subject to review and approval of International Training’s Training Department.
