PADI Master Instructors embody the essence of a true dive professional having demonstrated a thorough understanding of the PADI System of diver education, and put it into practice by training 150 or more PADI Divers. They are dive industry leaders who help to shape the development of future dive courses.
Jamie Miller began diving 8 years ago with Abyss Scuba Diving and immediately realised how amazing this adventure sport is. Jamie thought it would be awesome to show others what he had fallen in love with so began pursuing a career in diving.
Jamie started slowly, becoming Advanced certified whilst on a trip away to Nelson Bay. This was an excellent way to start exploring the huge underwater world in front of him while gaining new skills and confidence He then went overseas with Abyss on a dive trip to Vanuatu and fell in love with deep wreck diving. Upon returning to Sydney he was excited to start gaining a Master Scuba Diving certification and then went on to become a Divemaster.
Jamie found by doing this he was more confident when leading certified divers. He then obtained his PADI open water Instructor rating. He then began teaching for Abyss and slowly built his experience and confidence. He has continued to pursue his love of deep wreck diving, becoming Technically certified to decompression dive to 50m. Jamie also love Sidemount diving and underwater photography. Jamie tries to dive personally at least once every 2 weeks, whether it be to dive a wreck at 50m, photograph a striped angler, or complete a 2 hour sidemount excursion.
Jamie is currently a PADI Master Instructor and teaches all levels up to Instructor, including Sidemount and Technical training, with the latter two being his favourite ones to teach. Jamie sees his next challenge is to master Rebreather diving and then to teach it!
