PADI Professional Association of Diving Instructors
Why is PADI different?
PADI certification cards are the most respected and sought after scuba credentials in the world. No matter where you choose to dive, your PADI scuba certification card will be recognized and accepted. In fact, on most scuba diving adventures you will be surrounded by other PADI Divers who made the same certification choice you did to train with the world's largest and most respected scuba diving training organization.
PADI has certified over 24,000,000 divers since 1967 and averages 90,000 certifications each year. They operate in over 200 countries and territories worldwide and have retailers and resorts in over 150 countries. This means that almost no matter where you are, you can depend on PADI to gain your scuba diving certification. Their worldwide service and years of experience ensure you'll have the best experience possible yourself and walk away feeling confident in your abilities. To serve the needs of divers worldwide, translations of PADI materials are available in at least 26 languages. They offer several types of courses from certified divers to professional diving to freediving. No matter your level of experience and certification, PADI can help you achieve the next level.
Through courses, testing and hands-on skills, you'll work with PADI to ensure you have the right skillset to feel comfortable and safe in the water.
