I started diving at the age of 14 through the influence of my brother when he came back home with his diving equipment. He told me the beauty of the underwater world and told me to get an opportunity to explore the underwater world. Remember working during the School Holiday to achieve a Diving Certification.

When I was in Military School, I was fortunate to be trained as a diver. I continued my education and became a Dive Control Specialist. At age 22, I became a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor and in a short span of 2years, I became a PADI Master Instructor.  My teacher taught me to continue my education and he always said to me that a good diver is always learning and I always remember his advises, continue my diving education and presently I am a Specialty Instructor of over 20 diving specialties. I even broke my own personal record of diving to a depth of 125m using Trimix.

We just completed our PADI Instructor Development Course & PADI Instructor Examination and our candidates did well in the examination. I am especially proud of my youngest candidate; Zhantal Que. She started diving when she just turned 18 and took my advise and continue her education. In less than 3 months, she already completed her PADI Divemaster Course and was working as a PADI Divemaster in Sea World Dive Center.

We were scheduled to start our PADI Instructor Development Course in the month of May, the owner of Sea World Dive Center; Mr. Kim who is a PADI Course Director advised Zhantal Que to continue her education and attend the PADI Instructor Development Course, followed by the PADI Instructor Examination. I took charge in training the candidates. During the 10days of training, we teach candidates the fundamental of instructions. How To Present A Knowledge Presentation, Confined Water Presentation and Open Water Presentation. We also teach about the different Standards & Procedures of the PADI Courses. After successfully completed the PADI Instructor Development Course, candidates will be able to attend the PADI Instructor Examination.

I was impressed that Zhantal Que did well during the PADI IDC Course, have trained many candidates and she was the youngest I have taught. She understood the PADI System of Education and did well in her course. When she attended the PADI Instructor Examination, many thought she would not make it. There were some thought she will not do well in her examination due to her age but I was impressed when she finished the PADI Instructor Examination with flying colors.  I am looking forward for her to become the youngest PADI Master Instructor in the next 2 years.

If you are looking for a change of career, if you are looking for a job that can bring you all over the world then I strongly encourage you to become a PADI Professional. Go Pro with Sea World Dive Center, a PADI Career Development Center and be trained by PADI Master Instructor; Master Peter Tay with over 20years of teaching experiences. If you are already a diver then continue your education and become a Dive Professional. Our next PADI Instructor Development Course will be on July 10 – 18 and PADI Instructor Examination on July 20 & 21.
