This is what I found in the mailbox this morning, a; PADI Certificate of Excellence 2015 Platinum Status Course Director wall certificate. I have received this rating now for the 9th consecutive year, since PADI introduced this rating 9 years ago.
This make me one of the 58 Platinum PADI Course Directors worldwide and one of 25 in the PADI Asia Pacific region. On top of that I'm one of a handful Platinum PADI Course Directors worldwide who have received this rating uninterrupted since it's very beginning.
In the Gulf of Thailand I may well be the only PADI Course Director who has received this rating uninterrupted for nine consecutive years since it's conception by PADI.
It was already 18th February this year that I received email confirmation from PADI but it took another 4 months for the wall certificate to arrive.
For participating in a 'Platinum' IDC, come and see me! Your next opportunity will be 9th July in Puerto Galera in the Philippines, followed by 25th August on Phuket, Thailand where we are offering an IDC in both German and English languages with two PADI Course Directors and this is followed by 14th September by an IDC in Moalboal in the Philippines.
See you there,
