Deptherapy Education

We run two day programmes designed to help you as a scuba diving instructor or Dive Master to work with people with life changing injuries who wish to scuba dive. We aim through adaptive teaching to qualify such individuals wherever possible as PADI OW divers.



It is all about thinking out of the box and our programme was described by Frank Buchanan who runs The Scuba Trust as “setting the standard for the diving industry”.  We are tremendously proud that someone of Frank’s status within the disabled diving community should recommend us so highly.

The programme runs both in the UK and abroad and lasts for two days. It is a combination of classroom theory, practical exercises and pool based work. What we do is to allow you to work with seriously injured students in the pool so you will understand first-hand the real life issues that surround adaptive teaching.

The course covers amongst other topics a medical section and discussion on medication and diving, how to adapt standards, practical issues such as weighting and trim.

You can also register as a Deptherapy Education Dive Centre. We carry out a full assessment to make sure you are accessible in terms of accessibility.
