Percentage of students who take additional SCUBA training

Post by HydroGirl » Sun May 02, 2010 9:25 am

I am currently working on a presentation for one of our local dive clubs and want to collect data on the number of divers who obtain additional training beyond their open water class. I’ve been unable to find any good generic data thus far, so I thought my students would be a good place to start collecting this information.

Here are the percentages I’ve collected so far:

• 12% AOW
• 5% Rescue
• 18% Specialty
• 3% DM

The numbers did surprise me in that they are higher than I expected.

Would any of you be willing to collect and share your student numbers? I would appreciate any and all help with collecting this data.

have you contacted PADI or DEMA for their numbers?
