Here in the Midwest we await the arrival of Spring with the same patience as a 6 year old waiting for Santa Claus. We plan all of the things we are going to do once the weather warms up and things are new and alive again. Our human spirit yearns for new beginnings. At the dive shop we are busy getting ready for our local diving and all the season will bring.
For a special few divers, they have spent the winter months deciding to take their love of diving to the next level. Their new beginnings will be to go professional. The call of sharing their knowledge and helping other people come to know and love this awesome activity is finally too strong for them to ignore. And so they have enrolled in the PADI Divemaster course and will start their path to the most rewarding challenge in diving. We will chronicle two of the divers here in our blog over the next few months and share their journey with you. These two gentlemen will become staff members of Aquatic Realm Scuba Center and we are excited to start their training. Visit our Facebook page and website for the journey in pictures and videos. Class one is now under their belt and they have done their 400 and 800 yd. swims, the float, and rescue tows. In 2 weeks they start learning how to transform their good skills into demonstration quality ones.
We hope you will follow their progress with us and perhaps decide the professional path is for you too! Happy Diving!
