Meet Janean Sproul

Tank'd Scuba Lubbock, Texas Instructor Janean Sproul

My first scuba dive was in 1988. At that time in Mexico, they allowed anyone desiring to scuba  dive the ability to do so without being certified. At age 18, I saw diving without having to be certified as a great adventure. After becoming certified years later, I realized how dangerous that could have been. More...

At that moment, I decided that I was going to do everything I possibly could to protect, train and develop conscientious and safe divers who would hopefully grow to love the sport of scuba diving as much as I do. 

Over the years, I have continued to learn and grow as both a diver and as an instructor.  My goal is to never stop learning.  Over the past few years, I’ve ventured into Extended Range Diving which has opened my eyes to a whole new level of diving. I'm currently certified as an Extended Range Instructor in twin sets and side mount and will continue to train in XR and get certified as an instructor in both Technical Extended Range and Hypoxic Trimix.  Another goal of mine is to get certified in Classified Diving so I can offer those individuals with disabilities the opportunity to scuba dive. I feel blessed to be able to share my love for scuba diving with others and plan to continue to do so for many, many years to come!
