We believe that diving is not only a recreational sport but a fellowship of unique explorers of the underwater world. There are so many facets of diving and so many avenues to take; Wreck, Ice, Cave/Cavern, Technical, Rebreathers, Night Diving and leadership to name just a few.

Regardless, your SCUBA diving path begins with a sound foundation. It is our commitment at CSI to start every diver with a thorough education.

    We realize that there are short cuts to diving education, however we recognize the importance of repetition and allowing time to digest learned skills and academics. Entering any underwater realm where we can’t breathe the air around us has its inherent risks. Much like driving an automobile, diving requires a learning process that involves an allotted amount of time. Once learned, practice is essential for enjoying a safe diving experience.

Continuing Education

We encourage all divers to continue diving and learning new skills. CSI offers continuing education courses for divers interested in Recreational, Technical, Public Safety and Professional diving.

Our most popular continuing education courses are Advanced Open Water, Wreck Diver, Cavern Diver, Rescue Diver, and Divemaster. No matter what your interest is - we have a course for you!

CSI also recognizes the great opportunities to meet other divers and families. We have established the Mid Ohio Divers which is a Central Ohio based dive club. The focus of Mid Ohio Divers is to gather fellow divers together for trips, BBQs, camping, diving and diving related philanthropy events at the local quarries. One example is the Adaptive Diver Barbeque which has raised thousands of dollars to benefit disabled divers and other projects to support "Divers Helping Divers."

We are cross certified to teach from the following agencies:

• PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors)
• IANTD (International Association of Nitrox and Technical Diving)
• CMAS (Confédération Mondiale des Activités Subaquatiques)
• SEI (Scuba Educators International)

We look forward to diving with you!
