Among the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic is that it has prevented many of our instructors from meeting the normal instructor renewal requirements in terms of dives made or students taught.
- In some instances, travel restrictions have prevented instructors and students from getting to places where they can dive and teach.
- In other instances, fear of the risks associated with travel or tough economic times have prevented students who would normally take our classes from doing so.
We’ve had several instructors reach out to us with fears they may not be able to renew because they can’t meet the usual requirements. If you fall into this category, don’t panic.
For 2021, we’re allowing instructors affected by the pandemic to apply for a one-time waiver of the normal renewal requirements. You can do so by using the link below.
