Are you interested in learning to dive, improving your diving skills, and becoming a dive professional? The G.I. Bill® can help you accomplish this.
You can use your G.I. Bill® to pay for many of our scuba courses. Through this series of programs, you will learn the basics of diving and progress up a guided path to become a professional diver if you choose.
How Does it Work?
To start, San Diego Divers will need a current copy of your GI Bill® Statement of Benefits remaining. Please access https://www.va.gov/education/gi-bill/post-9-11/ch-33-benefit/
