They are the “Professional Association of Diving Instructors”

PADI is the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. It says it all doesn’t it. PADI develop, monitor and regulate the dive-training programs that are run only by their qualified professional Instructors when they teach you. By regulating and monitoring the activities run by Instructors, they can help ensure a global consistency and that safe dive standards are met.


PADI Instructors work within dive centers that advertise PADI Courses. Dive Center names and the individual business plans they choose to follow vary as they are all owned and run by different people around the globe. PADI are essentially the overseers that ensure that the PADI Instructors teaching within all these separate facilities are teaching you the right way!


As a newer diver, knowing that there is a professional association keeping a close eye on each Instructor and the way they teach you would really put confidence in the system that you are going to be learning to dive through.
