James Grant: Miami, Florida
I was fortunate enough to come across Chris Adams and his DIVE ARMY in Key Largo, FL. At the time I was still on active duty in the Navy and was looking for a program that would let me use my GI Bill to pursue my instructor certification. I started this process with Rescue Diver and was impressed with the passion that Chris brought to his instruction. Due to medical reasons I was not able to complete the class with the group I started with. Chris was extremely flexible in working with my schedule and we completed Rescue Diver a week later. His passion and willingness to work with me cemented in my mind that he was the one that I could trust to make me the best instructor I could be. Over the next year as my schedule would allow I finished Divemaster, Open Water Scuba Instructor, Master Scuba Diver trainer, Rebreather and Advanced Rebreather all with Chris as my instructor. Not only did he instill in me the confidence to train others to safely enter the underwater world that I love. He also became a close personal friend along the way. DIVE ARMY's VA program is the best one that I have seen, and I searched around for quite a while before settling on them. Be the best at scuba that you can be, join DIVE ARMY!!!
