Greg Davis is an independent PADI certified SCUBA instructor serving Houston, TX and surrounding areas (DiveTexas.com
). When learning to scuba dive, you have the option to choose a dive center or an independent instructor. Either way the certification and training are the same.
With an independent instructor, you will receive more flexibility, better prices and smaller classes. A dive center can sell you gear, repair/rent equipment and organize dive trips. But both dive centers and independent instructors offer the same scuba training.
Dive shops usually require that you buy gear up-front and may charge a lower training fee since you’re spending money on gear. Independent instructors usually only make money on training and there isn’t a need to buy gear until you know scuba diving is for you and you’re ready to invest.
