The “Professional Association of Diving Instructors” PADI is the biggest diver training organisation of the world. PADI develops diving courses, training standards and training materials in great number of languages. PADI controls education quality, trains new instructors and supports its professional members. The professional approach of PADI instructors, dive centres and resorts made PADI certificates to the most renowned and most asked certificates in the world. You can trust that PADI certificates are recognised nearly all over the world and that PADI’s good reputation is associated to it.



Our scuba diving courses build upon the “concept of performance-based learning”. This means student divers progress through the course by demonstrating that they meet measurable learning objectives. Courses are designed from simple to complex, so students build upon previous learning as they progress. Attempting to learn something without mastering prerequisites can complicate and interfere with development and learning. For this reason, students must satisfactorily demonstrate meeting knowledge development and water skills performance requirements in each sequence step. The great advantage for students is that the programmes allow you to work at a pace that is fully comfortable to you. We like to follow your individual and personal wishes or preferences but at the same time we stick to the recognised PADI standards and guidelines.

There are many “internationally recognised standards” for scuba diving which you and your instructor should follow to reduce risks and to maximise fun:

Depth limits linked to qualifications, obligatory skills to be performed during courses, equipment requirements, minimum age for specific courses, minimum number of dives of a specific course, student diver-to-instructor ratios, prerequisites for specific dives, leader commitments….

If you want to know more about these please ask your instructor or divemaster:
