For the last 30 years the Handicapped Scuba Association has been making it possible for people with disabilities to experience the world of scuba diving.

Specifically, Frank has studied to train students with multiple kinds of disabilities including blind, deaf, paraplegic, quadriplegic, amputee, as well as students with PTSD and cognitive disabilities.

Frank can teach the following Handicapped Scuba Association (HSA) Courses:

HSA Introduction to SCUBA Diving

Do you have an interest in scuba diving, but aren’t quite sure? In this introduction you’ll get a basic briefing and then get into the pool to see if the sensation of breathing underwater is for you. This is a nice introduction and a great way to check it scuba before committing to the full certification course.
