    We take classes from Dive Rescue International. They trave all over and you can sing up for their classes that way or they can come to your team. Find them at http://www.diverescueintl.com There are others of course but this is the one we use as a team.

    Those 2 outfits have a slightly different approach on some things, each with their own merits.
    I tend to side with LGS.

    Alot of that stuff thats in the fire engineering magazine was written by the LGS team.

    I'd also advise LGS over DRI

    FWIW

    Butch, Andrea and Brian are probably the best PSD instructors out there!!
    Team LGS is The Leader of the pack, we did DRI two years ago and last year did LGS, What a difference. After 10 hrs a day for 4 days solid you will have a new outlook on the inconviences of being entangled and how to relax ,and not to " let the monkey out of the cage"

    This class made me a better diver by at least 100%
