PDI was present at the Getaway Show in Johannesburg in August.
Not only was it great fun but the opportunity to meet old and new friends made it all worthwhile.
Many new contacts were made and new ideas and products launched.
To all those that slaved away to set up, break down and man the stall - THANK YOU
Adventure Mania in Sodwana hosted a Scuba Rangers Instructor Course in October.
Congratulations to all and thank you for your hard work and dedication.
Not only is Scuba Rangers a fun course to do, but it also grows the diving industry from a grass roots level.
The kids of today are the future of diving.
PDI hosted a fun dive weekend with past and present students in November.
Hosted, once again, by Adventure Mania in Sodwana. Great dives, good company, loads of food and drink made this a memorable trip.
You might have noticed that we use Adventure Mania a lot for our dives and training. Well the service is great with two very knowledgable hosts means we go back again and again.
Congratulations to Jacque and Amanda van Jaarsveld who completed an intensive DCS to ITC including Speciality Seminar in Nelspruit.
All the blood sweat and tears were worth it in the end. With the IE held by Bryan at Miracle Waters, both qualified as Instructors with flying colours.
The certifications were handed out at the Getaway Show.
Blue Wave Scuba, Pretoria, hosted an Instructor Trainer Course (ITC) in March.
Kezia and Glen thanks for being such amazing candidates and providing many hours of entertainment, yes and a few tear your hair out moments. Once again thanks to Bryan for holding the IE at Miracle Waters.
We welcome our new Instructors into the SSI family and wish them much success.
SSI held a highly successful Instructor Trainer Course (IT) at Sodwana Bay in May.
All the candidates passed and are now able to grow the SSI family in South Africa. This filled a great gap in the market in South Africa and we expect great things from them. Being the highest qualification in Recreational Scuba Diving it’s a huge achievement. Well Done.
SSI is the second largest dive training agency worldwide and is represented by over 2500 Dive Centres in more than 110 countries. SSI scuba divers are highly regarded because of SSI’s high level of training standards, up to date material and attention to serious diving – and serious fun.
The IT Course was held by Ronny Kaine, the International Training Director for SSI, and was accompanied by Guido Waetzig a shareholder in SSI worldwide.
Many thanks to the staff at Coral Divers. Once again you were amazing.
