This program is designed for veterans by veterans. iDive is proud to be an approved instructor development center for any service member, retiree, or family member(s) that have the G.I. Bill® benefits. Service members who qualify can be reimbursed for their certifications and licensing. Restrictions follow same guidelines as the VA licensing and certification reimbursement program – please refer to this website for more information.
Service members are able to use one month of G.I. Bill® benefits per class and can progress as far as they want. Service members can use up to one month to six months of benefits to get scuba certified or become a dive professional.
You become a dive professional upon the completion of a Divemaster course, continuing on to Diving Instructor, Instructor Trainer, and Course Director - all of these professionals licensing are considered true vocational programs. These licensing can provide full-time employment with lucrative pay.
