NovoScuba: New subscription-based dive training agency



On 16 May, at the TDEX Bangkok show, a new subscription-based dive training agency will be unveiled – NovoScuba.

The people behind NovoScuba state that they have over a century of combined diving industry experience and, having recognised what they call the outdated and limited nature of current training methods, seek to introduce a fresh, comprehensive and digitally native online diving education platform.

They say this platform will revolutionise diving education by offering the most-advanced and comprehensive diving training programmes from recreational to professional levels, including various specialties, all in accordance with international standards and ISO certifications, in an annual or monthly subscription model that overcomes the limitations of single, expensive course materials and certification fees.

NovoScuba is a digitally native training programme

“We recognized the need for change in the dive training industry and saw an opportunity to leverage technology to redefine existing business models,” said Mark Spiers , CEO of NovoScuba. “Our deep understanding of traditional pain points for the industry, combined with our digitally native approach, positions NovoScuba as a game-changer in dive education.”

NovoScuba's platform offers unique initiatives such as a student subscription model, open access to all course materials, a pay-as-you-certify system for dive shop owners, no inventory required, monthly membership payments, payment in local currency, one-click certifications and Pro membership freezes.

NovoScuba joins the ranks of existing training agencies

Designed by professionals for the modern diver, NovoScuba courses are available in 13 languages. They offer a fully interactive user experience through a digital native platform and are inspired by the latest knowledge and trends in diving, equipment, safety and environmental awareness.

Key to NovoScuba's approach is its commitment to shared success, accessibility and positive outcomes for the planet, along with the goal of making diving accessible to everyone, regardless of background or ability. With a focus on collaboration and innovation, the agency fosters partnerships with dive shops, professionals and underwater enthusiasts around the world.

NovoScuba represents another route to exploring our underwater world

“NovoScuba is challenging a change in the industry, redefining established traditional systems, and ushering in a new standard of excellence, support, and partnership,” Mark Spiers emphasized. “Our collaborations with dive stores, pros, and underwater enthusiasts won’t demand exclusivity, prioritizing earned loyalty, and an understanding that our members' success is key to our own.”
