YES! There are many other training agencies around the World, in fact hundreds of them, and new ones coming up all the time but the main players remain. 

Anyone looking to learn to dive or divers looking to advance thier certifications or to become professionals, should look at the training agency very carefully and consider all of the options.

NOT all training agencies are the same, there are many differences in standards as applied to training and certification and many differences in training philosophy and delivery. Also materials, costs and on-going costs, etc.
