The quality of the teaching materials
ISDA has always focused on the quality of teaching materials.
The completeness of the kit, the editorial accuracy of manuals, which are easy to see and study, accompanied by color photos and drawings, and the quality and richness of information in texts is all very much apprecitated.

The Courses
The extra-wide training program is proud to offer, as well as lines of SCUBA, Free diving and Tek, four Special Courses: Underwater Archaeology, created in collaboration with the Superintendence of the Sea of Palermo, Marine Biology, which is enjoying great success and with a manual which is distinguished for its clarity and depth with which it treats the matter as well as 80 recognition charts; Civil Protection Diver is an exciting though very challenging new course; Scubamaster is a course developed in subsequent modules, accompanying the student gradually into the world of technical diving; Parasub opens the doors to the fantastic underwater world for everyone.

The projects
ISDA was born from the love of the sea and this does not just mean dealing with training, but also striving to make sure the sea is celebrated in the best possible way, with ever new wonders and respect. It is in this context that important projects in the field of Ecology, and Solidarity, are born involving all branches of the agency, in Italy and abroad.

As part of the GREEN WAVE PROJECT initiatives, ISDA has partnered with several Protected Marine Areas (Biology Diver project) and created the figure of ISDA RANGER for monitoring and protecting the coastal and marine environment for the spread of a more careful and aware culture. It also organizes campaigns to clean the seabed and civic awareness to respect the environment (project 'Take the Tank and Sweep').

As part of PROJECT ONE WORLD ISDA promotes initiatives to wider and better enjoyment of the underwater world by all, with courses for the disabled (Parasub courses and related initiatives) and support the training of new professionals divers among the youth of developing countries
