PADI visits Dive Machine

PADI’s regional manager Emma Hewitt paid a visit to Dive Machine today to update on the progress of diver training and how to maintain and improve our services to divers.
It was a very interesting afternoon and Aly Toullec joined in to advise on web improvements to our own webpages.

To top off a great afternoon Emma totally surpised us with a PADI award, an etched glass ornament.
“In recognition of outstanding commitment to PADI diver training”.

Thank you Emma and PADI. And thank you PADI EMEA and all the their staff for the continued support of our diving business over the last 20 years. Also to Dive Machine’s long list of Divemasters and Instructors that have put in all the work and great efforts over the years.

Well done to everyone..

IMG_0096Congratulations to today’s Advanced Open Water, Deep specialty, Tec 45 and Tec 50 students.
We’ll done to you all.
Sorry not everyone is in the picture. These students remained to complete their knowledge review’s.
Sammy, Helen and Steve, you did a great job today.
I also had my most enjoyable Tec training dives with student’s. What I find most rewarding is seeing students that have struggled with skills earlier in their course show a sound level of competence after all their difficulties. Enjoy your diving.
