This program is designed for veterans by veterans. Ocean Gear Scuba Center is 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 through Ocean Gear Scuba Center. Restrictions follow same guidelines as the VA licensing and certification reimbursement program – please refer to this website https://www.va.gov/education/about-gi-bill-benefits/how-to-use-benefits/test-fees/
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 professional. Professionals are defined as Divemasters, Diving Instructors, Instructor Trainers, and Course Directors – all of these professionals licensing are considered true vocational programs. These licenses can provide full-time or part-time employment with lucrative pay.

We are offering a virtual live-streamed Q&A to discuss how the program functions, what you will need to do to begin the process and answer all of your questions that can start at any point from the very beginning to a fantastic continuing education program to ultimately becoming certified as a Scuba Instructor and Instructor Trainer. The point here is that you have options and choices. Ask your questions and we will do our best to answer them and/or get you the answers you need. This is a free seminar that will last about one hour with unlimited Q&A at the end.
