bluewater and Diamond Diving announce training partnership
bluewater's training division has announced a new partnership with Diamond Diving whereby three Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) courses will be offered to superyacht crew as of March 2014 at Diamond Diving's PADI resort in Golf Juan.
With Diamond Diving, bluewater will be offering the Discover Scuba Diving course, Open Water Course and Instructor Development Course.
The PADI Open Water Course, getting candidates to a competent, confident and safe level of diving, will offer an Open Water Diver rating - a widely recognised entry-level diver qualification in the industry.
The Instructor Development Course is a 10-day course that prepares candidates to become a competent entry-level PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) and requires candidates already hold the PADI DiveMaster qualification or an equivalent, as well as 60 logged dives including experience in deep diving, night diving and underwater navigation.
The Discover Scuba Diving Course is an option for those students taking part in Summer School and is provided solely to candidates of 16 to 18 years old, and takes place in Antibes in July.
"Over the years we have trained a number of yacht crewmembers who have often found a PADI qualification to be a very useful addition to their CV. We are delighted to be working with bluewater as a natural extension and development of this and are looking forward to sharing the quality of diving in the South of France with more yacht crew," said Alex Diamond, co-owner of Diamond Diving.
