Is PADI the same as other diver training agencies?
Some dive training agencies claim they are the same, but there is only one PADI.
With more than 135,000 PADI Members offering the highest quality diver training through 6,300 PADI Dive Centres, PADI is clearly the world’s most successful and professional dive training agency. The PADI family continues to grow and PADI proudly welcomed 1200 new Individual members and 71 new Resort and Retailer members for the month of April 2015.
PADI has been offering superior products and service in the dive industry since John Cronin and Ralph Erickson founded the company in 1966. Almost 50 years later, the PADI Educational System, PADI Educational Products, PADI Business Support, PADI Employees and more importantly, the quality PADI Members like you, have lifted PADI to different level from all of our competitors.
PADI works 365 days of the year generating more than 1 Billion impressions of our quality brand to ensure consumers who want to learn to dive seek out a PADI Dive Centre. This is why you often hear customers say ‘I want my PADI’.
Thank you to all of our PADI Members in Region 12 who do a great job teaching the world to dive and ensuring every customer has the opportunity to get their PADI.
