Dwain Rowe and Shannon Rowe recently completed their Instructor Training Course (ITC) through Steve Hale, Instructor Trainer / Evaluator with ISC. This husband and wife team are longtime friends of "The Center" and they bring years of experience to an already great staff.
Their presentations on the various research topics given them were among the best we've seen. We expected no less, as both Dwain and Shannon have extensive medical backgrounds. Dwain is a retired Paramedic that now serves once again as Director of Wings Air Rescue and his wife Shannon is a Nurse Practitioner, FNP. As a result of these disciplines it is only natural that they will be heavily involved in our CPR / Dive Medic Courses as well.
Combined experience of our six instructors now exceeds 180 years of diving experience and thousands of accident free dives. More instructors will be added in the near future, as we have several candidates completing their prerequisites for one of the most demanding and challenging ITCs there is. Ours is not an ITC that can be completed in a week or a couple of weekends. We didn't receive recognition as a Scuba College from the International Diving Educators Association by offering instructor courses that can be completed in a couple of weekends.
