Roatan Dive Academy, the professional training arm of Subway Watersports at Turquoise Bay Resort and Mayan Divers at Mayan Princess Resort, has announced it is using this “down time” to improve the quality of the PRO, ECO and TEC courses being offered on Roatan. There has been reorganizing, planning and connecting dive training with conservation across the entire course board.
One of the more tangible results is the NEW www.RoatanDiveAcademy.com web page. Not only is the new site more user-friendly, but the adaptive platform makes the new fresh content easier to navigate and provide even more informative details about the only multi-location IDC Training Facility on Roatan.
The page has been organized in four sections:
Know Us – Information about the staff, locations, dive sites, boats, accommodation and more, related to the academy´s work.
Eco Courses – Six of the more important ecology courses a diver should take to be aware and prepared to take action in conservation. The offer includes two courses exclusively taught by Roatan Dive Academy: BAY ISLAND REEF RESTORATION written by Trip Funderburk, and CARIBBEAN LIONFISH CONTROL written by our Course Director Fabio Buitrago.
Professional Courses – this section includes all the “post – recreational” courses starting from Dive Master and Instructor Development courses up to Specialty Instructor, MSDT, IDC Staff Instructor and Master Instructor. In the Dive Master and IDC Courses the internship options have included, and lots of bundle packages have been added as alternatives for eager professionals.
TEC Courses – Whit in this section you can find information on basic TEC 40, 45 and 50 courses, as well as information on becoming a TEC DEEP Instructor. Other courses included in this section are Sidemount, Full Face Mask, Gas Blender and Self Reliant, both as diver and as instructor courses.
Along with the new website, Roatan Dive Academy has also introduced a new logo. Designed on the island, the new logo brings together the concept of peak performance buoyancy, the Roatan name and the iconic dive flag in a simple combination that looks great on merchandise and is highly recognizable.
The new site is designed to incorporate online learning, which is especially timely. For more details, contact the staff at [email protected]
