What is the difference between the Learning Academy and Webpoint?

    The difference between the two is that while webpoint helps us keep track of all of our memberships, the Learning Academy portal is the gold standard for education excellence for the sport of diving. We are trying to make registering to be a member as easy as it ever has been by providing all of the necessary requirements to be a member in one convenient place. Additionally, on our portal, our members will be able to educate themselves like never before with our variety of (new) courses, videos, and literature, only accessible on our Learning Academy.
