Continued my education and earned my NAUI Divemaster status in 1989. Went on to become a NAUI instructor in 1991 and Course director five years later in 1996. Served as the NAUI Northeast Representative for two and a half years from 2014 to mid 2016 where I earned Course Director Trainer Status in the fall of 2015. Taught IT and CD programs at the US Military academy at West Point and the Coast Guard Academy in CT. Staffed a training session for FDNY in early 2015 at West Palm Beach Florida.
