For the past few months, we’ve been receiving some certificates of excellence from PADI through the mail.

However the latest one that we received yesterday was very special, not only does it look fantastic but it was also hand-delivered to us by none other than PADI AP Regional Manager Mr Johnny Chew.

Downbelow’s Managing Director and resident PADI Platinum Course Director Richard Swann was on hand to receive the award.

The award was for Outstanding Contribution to Instructor Development 2012.

A big round of applause goes to the whole Downbelow team, from the head office, boat captains, dive instructors & the Go Pro Team led by Richard who year on year take our PADI Instructor Development Courses (IDC’s) to new staggering heights whilst maintaining our 100% success rate.

Thank you PADI for the recognition and a special thank you to Mr Johnny for dropping by the office to present the award.
