Education Standards

Our 5 dive open water program is unique to us.  Why? Because there is a certain element of risk associated with diving, and only experience where it counts adds safety, comfort and peace of mind. You will also benefit from the smallest student to instructor ratio in the industry which guarantees that you will receive as much personal attention as you need.

Sure your dive course must be fun, but over and above all else it must be safe. The safety of our divers is paramount to our business and it is only through quality education that this can be achieved. All our current certifications are done through SSI (SCUBA SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL). We are not bound by maximum education ceilings, through Scuba Culture you will be taught more.

In 1971, at the tender age of 8 years old, Xavier had no idea that a career at the pinnacle of teaching scuba was in store for him later on in life.

Xavier, Director of Scuba Culture who works full time at the store has been instructing instructors now since 1991 under the banner of NASDS (National Association of Scuba Diving Instructors) formerly FAUI (Federation of Australian Underwater Instructors). Later on in life, Xavier qualified as a Course Director with NAUI (National Association of Underwater Instructors).running several instructor programs and examining on many others. In 2000, Xavier also became an Instructor Certifier for SSI (SCUBA SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL) where for several years, Instructor Programs have run through SCUBA CULTURE Pty Ltd.

With such a history at the very top of diver training under the banners of the worlds top training agencies, there is no-one in the Victorian diving industry that can offer the depth of knowledge that Xavier delivers time and time again to his Instructor candidates.

In as much as the fact that there is a handful of SSI Instructor Certifiers in Victoria, SCUBA CULTURE is the only training facility that can boast a full time member of staff with this much knowledge and experience.

We also have affiliations with: DAN (Divers Alert Network) Asia Pacific, William Angliss Institute, TDI (Technical Divers International) and NAUI (National Association of Underwater Instructors).
