    ITs are Steve Lewis of Techdiver Training, Watson Devore of RAID USA, Barbie Thompson of Dive Pirates, Jill Heinerth of Heinerth Productions, and I don't know who else. I've known Barbie for many many years, so she was the natural choice for me, but going to Steve or Jill might be easier for you, as they are closer to NYC than Barbie in Houston or Watson in Carr, CO. I am an independent instructor. Since the agency is 99.9999% online, logistically it's the easiest thing in the world. Pay a fee, and Watson opens up whatever it is you need.

    I am indeed. There is a DM crossover, the global head of rec training is coming here next week so maybe a meet up for a frosty German beverage may be in order?

    What Frank said. I went the other way and registered myself as a dive centre. All they want to know is how you are managing logistics and quality. I have signed agreements for fills, pool etc etc with 2 LDS here so no problem. Also means that other freelance guys like say @JohnnyC can operate under my centre without issues.

    I had to renew my SDI facility while waiting on my instructor status to come through. So I am not a RAID facility. I am approved, and we will renew that way next year. When we have a boat. Dammit.

    So, the crossover is 200 for the online portion plus whatever it would cost to do the practical session with an IT on top of it?

    That's what it cost me.
