Online training program from SDI enters second phase

2nd Generation Online Open Water Scuba Course: Scuba Diving International's ground-breaking Online Open Water course has entered the next phase.

Following its initial release at the 2005 DEMA Show, Las Vegas, it is now ready for full release to all dealers across North America.

Located at www.sdi-onlinetraining.com, the 2nd generation online program has over 300 new photos and illustrations and 25 minutes of new video. The SDI Online Open Water course has the same eye catching content as the new SDI CD-ROM Open Water Scuba Course.

It meets the needs of both Instructors and students who demand a more interactive approach to diver training. "Consumers need learning materials that fall outside the traditional 'Textbook/Chalk and Talk' box," explained David Burroughs, SDI Vice President for Sales and Marketing. "The SDI Online Open Water Diver course reflects exactly what today's market is calling for, and the Online feature broadens the program's appeal by making it available to anyone who wants to complete an Open Water Diver course academics at their own pace, following their own timetable, anywhere there is internet access."

The redesigned program has many new search features for both the consumer and the instructor. Making it easy for the student to review their information and the instructor to search for each student and track his progress as he works his way through the course. Distance learning is not a new concept and many colleges and universities are utilizing this approach with great success.

SDI has also released an Electronic Learning Instructor Guide CD-ROM, an essential tool for instructors using the on-line or CD-ROM versions of the SDI Open Water Diver course. The Instructor CD-ROM includes all the materials contained in the student version, plus interactive instructor guides, Power Point presentations, final exams, and quiz and exam answer keys.

This exciting new product is available exclusively through SDI Dive Centers.
