An experience that everyone should have: that was the feeling that Michel Quint had after his first dive. The year was 1999, some time ago. "It was a blast! Diving is great! It's a sports activity, it fits in with a healthy lifestyle and it shows you a different side of the world. There is so much more to explore than just the world above the surface, you really miss out if you do not explore it." Because he wanted to share his passion for diving, he became a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor in 2003 and later, in 2008, PADI Course Director. Michel has made his passion into his profession and is now working full time in the diving industry. In his regular day job as a commercial diver he spends a lot of hours underwater, but he also wants to share his enthusiasm for diving with others.
Diving requires proper preparation and guidance. "Good supervision is essential," says Michel. "If people have a good first dive experience, they will definitely continue diving more regularly." Also in Instructor Development, guidance is essential. As a PADI Course Director Michel can guide anyone who wants to take diving to another level. For the last five years, Michel has taught IDC's on a regular basis in the Netherlands (in Dutch) and Lanzarote (in Dutch, English and German) . "A superb program! Teaching future instructors how to teach diving. Best of all; I can't examine my own students! This part is done independently by PADI and I am very proud of that!"
"The beautiful experience I had during my first dive, is one everyone should experience. If you, as a PADI Professional, can convey that feeling to your students, you are going to be very successful! To help you on your way in becoming a successful PADI Scuba Instructor, I invite YOU to join the upcoming PADI Instructor Development Course. "
