Cave and Technical Training at Mexico Underground
At Mexico Underground all Courses are run to the highest standards ensuring divers are capable of diving or teaching to their certification level. It is important to understand that all certifications are earned and not brought when paying your class fee’s, and in some circumstances students are required to take additional days of training to meet the class standards.
All students must show good skill mastery and understanding at each level set out by the relevant training organization before certification can be awarded. Many of our courses have an online learning options this helps minimize the classroom time allowing for more in-water time, for many this can be a big time saver avoiding long days in the classroom when at base, we will always forward students the material for this option at the time of booking to best prepare you for your chosen class.
