    After experiencing the diving industry, all of its triumphs and failures with too many losses of dive businesses, as well as too many friends and colleagues to diving maladies I decided to give something back to the industry. I saw thousands of young people enter the industry only to get swept up into a world of fantasy with no real idea where they were going with minimal business leadership. In 1995 we researched the top 100 dive centers in the USA and if given the opportunity 80% of all owners said they would have sold their business... Thought I would add a little light and hope to those remaining in the industry with the Diamond Reef® System and Challenge Course. Those that have incorporated it's concepts into their dive training and marketing programs have succeeded in increasing profits and increasing diver retention. For further info, go to our Facebook site and read the last 10-15 posts, and please read all the testimonials. You may find something that may increase your student's skills, curriculum participation and bottom line @ N/C.
