PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer
Scott Rummings, NASE Master Instructor
Most don't people think of training as fun; it's just something you
have to do before you get to the fun stuff. I teach classes that
are FUN and prepare you to be a safe and knowledgeable diver. My
training techniques make learning all skills neutrally bouyant easier
and more fun than doing skills kneeling on the bottom. You will impress
experienced divers with your skills but only you will know the
secret--it's super easy! Other instructors will rush you through
training and never take the time (about 15-20 minutes) to get your
bouyancy under control then sell you another class to correct your
buorancy problems. I also offer the peak performance buoyancy course

and total open water time.

experience over many years of diving. If you want to know a little more
about me you can read about my experience here.
SCUBA is a fun activity for the entire family and is actually much more
affordable than most people believe. Invest in a hobby that promotes
fitness and opens your life to a whole new world. If you can afford the latest smart phone you can afford SCUBA.
Exercise your mind and body, enjoy a fun outdoor activity with a
surprisingly large group of local divers in a family friendly
atmosphere or chose to participate with just friends and family. Either
way, you won't have trouble finding someone to dive with locally.
Once you are certified and have your basic equipment, local
diving can be one of the least expensive activities you can enjoy in
central PA. Your certification is valid and recognized worldwide for
life. Dive local or explore tropical waters on vacation. Of course, I
suggest you do both.
