Scuba Lessons Jax's owner and head instructor Chris Conrad adheres strictly to the safety standards and teaching practices put forth by PADI, but that doesn't mean he adheres strictly to typical class timeframes. Rather, he understands that each student learns at a different pace, and provides flexible scheduling to ensure that everybody who learns diving from him fully grasps the fundamentals.
Whether training a complete beginner or certifying a new assistant instructor, he focuses on a single subject above all others: safety. That means teaching students how to check and double-check their equipment, the best practices for diving in open water, and the safest wishes to make if they ever run into a magic fish.
