CPA operates SDI-TDI-ERDI Slovenia diving center and the Poseidon rebreather center. Throughout the year, we perform diving courses from one of the most internationally recognized schools, INTERNATIONAL TRAINING.
Scuba Diving International
SDI was created in 1998 and grew out of the success of our sister company TDI, which specializes in the more advanced disciplines of dive training.
Both students and instructors have embraced the no nonsense approach that the SDI training system offers. We have streamlined the course materials to let students study the essential academics with an emphasis on practical diving skills learned in both the pool and open water environments. SDI is the only scuba training and certification agency to require students to be taught with modern dive computers from the onset of training. SDI course materials are state-of-the-art; the materials are lavishly illustrated with photography and graphics. Diving is constantly changing. SDI staff is always looking forward and striving to be the innovators in scuba diving education. SDI focus is to make the experience of diving one that is enjoyed by every family member. SDI staff are all active divers; and want to share the love of the sport.Official Website
Technical Diving International
TDI is the largest technical certification agency in the world. As one of the first agencies to provide training in mixed gas diving and rebreathers, TDI is seen as an innovator of new diving techniques and programs which previously were not available to the general public. Training with TDI has provided divers with the opportunity to see such wrecks as the Andrea Doria, Lusitania and the Prince of Wales. TDI divers have explored underwater caves in Spain, Australia and Mexico and assisted as support divers on world record freedives done in the Red Sea. TDI’s professionals are held to the highest standard to ensure quality training throughout the world. This means that as a diver taking a TDI course, your instructor will have documented his experience and knowledge prior to achieving that rating. As an instructor candidate taking a TDI course, your TDI instructor trainer will have gone through the paces to achieve the highest level of training that TDI offers. TDI is committed to offering the highest quality training supported by the latest materials with the most up to date information and techniques. TDI’s materials are written by authors that acutely conduct the type of diving they are writing about. Those same materials are updated as technology and equipment change.Official Website
Emergency Response Diving International
ERDI is a Public Safety Diving (PSD) agency that trains police, fire, and other public safety organizations in search and rescue techniques that apply to almost any submerged environment. ERDI trains departments on how to make and maintain PSD teams and is the only public safety dive training agency that has its own insurance and endorses its own standards. In fact, some of the largest, most successful, and renown public safety departments use ERDI Programs to conduct training. Each and every day public safety divers face the challenges of swift water, black water, and a myriad of other potentially harmful situations as part of the job. ERDI offers training to help teams accomplish these missions with the best possible education available. All ERDI programs are both Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA compliant). Many of the ERDI programs can be taught at several levels in accordance with NFPA guidelines. The level of participation in the practical portion of the course will determine the final level of certification. The classification levels are: Awareness, Operations, and Technician. All ERDI programs are available to public safety professionals regardless of their position within a department.Official Website
We conduct diving courses in small groups, as this is the only way we can ensure quality and safe learning under the watchful eye of our experienced diving instructors. Individual courses are also available on request. As the first and only in Slovenia, we are also very narrowly specialized in training rescue divers according to the ERDI programs. These programs go beyond the recreational diving level and are only suitable for professional divers. All programs are approved by the Slovenian Diving Association.
