Disabled Divers International (DDI) is a non-profit organization, with the aim to promote, develop and conduct disabled scuba diving training programs for professional and non-professional students. Since its introduction in 2010, DDI has gathered extensive support and recognition within the diving industry and conducted both professional and non-professional programs all around the world. All board members are volunteers, dedicated to promoting and developing disabled scuba diving internationally.

DDI programs are designed to work in cooperation with existing scuba diving training organizations and their training programs.

DDI professional training adds to the diving professional a new set of tools and knowledge to train disabled divers safely and certify their students as a scuba diver, with varied levels of limitations depending on the student’s ability to perform program requirements and standards.

Scuba diving is also a social sport, and as such can have a tremendous positive effect on disabled divers and their ability to interact with non-disabled divers alike. As a diving professional the work with disabled divers is also rewarding as the students share their excitement and joy of their experiences. For diving professionals and dive centers alike, offering DDI programs can both help them differentiate them self from their competitors, but also offer added value to their community and staff.
