Mares/SSI invite you to attend Scuba University



Mares UK will be hosting a Scuba University seminar from SSI next week in Solihull. Running from Monday 26th – Wednesday 28th January, the event will be held at The Limes Country Lodge in Earlswood.

“Scuba University is a fantastic seminar and workshop designed to help those in the dive industry learn more about running a successful dive business,” said Richard Corner from Mares. “Most people enter the industry by learning how to teach people to dive, but there’s additional skills needed to run a successful dive centre. Scuba university is designed to fill in those blanks.”

Mares dealers and other industry experts will be in attendance to hear some great advise from one the dive industry’s pioneers. “We are very fortunate to be getting the expertise of Doug McNeese, one of the original presidents of SSI, to run this course for us,” said Richard.

The event will run from 9:00am to 4:00pm each day. Mares/SSI will provide drinks, snacks and lunch for all three days and will host a dinner on the Tuesday night. The cost to attend the event is £150 per person, which Mares say will be returned via product discount following completion of the program. Accommodation is available from Limes Country Lodge at £70 per night (B+B).
