I’m confident that I can be of great service furthering the SDI group towards its successful goals,” stated Ed Christini.

Ed Christini’s background is a perfect fit for an organization such as the group of training agencies under the International Training umbrella. “Ed’s background in dive retail combined with his experience in running and growing a recreational training agency and his industry experience serving on Board of Directors from DEMA to the Recreational Scuba Training Council (RSTC) round him out as the type of person that we seek” said Fleming Elleboe, International Training’s Board Chairman.

The group of agencies was started to serve the technical diving sector of the dive industry as Technical Diving International, the Agency was formed in 1994. The TDI curriculum was developed first and forged the way for the SDI programs that followed and was officially released in 1998, more recently by ERDI in 2000 to serve the needs of public safety divers.
