I have recently been asked to serve on the Advisory board of a new dive school here in north central Texas. The Professional Diver Training Center is located in Mansfield, Texas. The owner is Donald Moore, he is both the executive and a hands-on instructor.  Don worked several years in the Commercial diving industry after retiring from the Navy. He served 20 years in the US Navy as a Diver Chief Petty Officer conducting diving operations.  Mr. Moore was then designated as an instructor at the Naval Special Warfare Center teaching diving to US Navy Seal candidates. From 2018-2021 he served as the Director of  Training and curriculum development at a commercial diving school in Goodyear, Arizona. He holds instructor certification from the US Navy as a High-Risk instructor and Master Training Specialist.  For more information see

Since 2011, I have also been on the Educational Advisory Board of the Ocean Corporation in Houston, Texas. The Ocean Corporation has been in business since 1969.  Their Ultimate Diver Training program was the first in the country to include bell diving. Learn more about Ocean Corp programs here:

I am looking forward to adding the Professional Diver Training Center to my Advisory board positions. I am excited to be on the educational advisory boards of both the oldest and the newest, commercial dive schools in Texas.
