Using your VA Benefits
Our VA program enables veterans to use their GI Bill® benefits to learn to dive, continue their SCUBA education, or become a dive industry professional. This program offers multiple VA-approved certifications and professional-level licenses. These programs cover a range of courses, including beginner scuba diving education, technical diving, instructor courses, and more.
We encourage you to confirm your eligibility for this program with the Department of Veteran Affairs Regional Office or local VA Assistance Offices prior to committing to a course.
Eligibility is based on the following programs:
- Montgomery GI Bill® – Active-Duty Educational Assistance Program Chapter 30
- Post-Vietnam Era Veterans Assistance Program Chapter 32
- Post-9/11 GI Bill® Chapter 33
- Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance Program Chapter 35
- Montgomery GI Bill® – Selected Reserve Program Chapter 1606
These licenses and exams should deduct portions of months based on the dollar amount of the course taken. Each veteran has a different situation so confirming with the VA before starting is the best scenario to confirm eligibility and reimbursement.
You should confirm eligibility, time left and benefit level with your VA representative. The veteran will only be reimbursed the amount listed on our website. Equipment purchases are not covered under this program.
The SDI Rescue Diver Course is designed to develop the knowledge and necessary skills to effectively perform diver rescues and assist and administer the necessary first aid in the event of an emergency. You will learn skills such as how to perform self rescues, buddy rescues, recognize and calm potential panic divers, administer proper first aid to divers that have experienced dive related injuries, conduct effective search patterns and manage accident scenes. After the SDI Rescue Diver Course you can enroll in the SDI Master Scuba Diver Development Program or start in the professional ranks and sign up for the SDI Divemaster Course.
