The importance of training
Diving is fun. That's a given. It involves some technical and other skills to make sure the fun is also safe. Deciding to become a diver starts with getting the right training. Becoming a better diver also involves training. Different systems exist leading to certification levels that are internationally recognized. The international recognition allows dive centers around the world to judge suited dives, equipment and so on. Training will take you under water step by step, teaching you all the skills step by step.
