Hj Syed Abd Rahman is most well-known for his efforts in training the next generation through Kids Scuba, a dive school dedicated to training kids, teens, youth and, more recently, people with disabilities and underprivileged youth. However his dedication to the diving industry does not end there. Hj Syed is also Vice President for the Malaysia Scuba Diving Association, PADI IDC Staff Instructor, an active member of the PADI Youth Advisory Committee and recipient of many PADI awards over the years including Outstanding Contribution to the Youth Diving Education.

“I am actually very honoured that the Government via the Ministry of Tourism extend the opportunity for me to contribute to my country, Malaysia,” says Hj Syed.

On behalf of the entire PADI Community, our heartfelt congratulations go out to Syed for all that you have achieved over the years, including this latest, well-deserved appointment. We look forward to continuing to work with you to grow the scuba diving community in Malaysia in the future.
