Rob and the staff at Scubatude know diving and the equipment that makes it safe and enjoyable. The class gave me good insight on how to maintain and store my gear, exposed me to new technologies like the the full face (which I bought), and how to do small repairs.

The Class was very informative and I now feel that I can properly explain issues that I may have and also understand what a tech may be charging me for on a repair.

I found a lot of value in this course. It is always a good thing when you feel comfortable with and have knowledge of your and other people's equipment. Accidents can be prevented simply by trusting your training and responding quickly and courses like this help to take the guess work out of the equation when it comes to matters of equipment. Not only was this course valuable, but any interaction with Scubatude is also valuable. The staff is great and they actually care about the safety and experience their customers and students have not to mention the education at this facility is of the highest caliber. Look no further for your next shopping or education experience.
