At Downbelow, we are committed to teaching and producing quality dive professionals and instructors through our various professional dive courses.
One of our programs is catered towards to local youths in Sabah to pursue their diving dream where they can go from being a non-diver to achieve professional status in a year. The program which we call “Work for a Career” has produced many quality dive instructors in Sabah and one of them is current PADI IDC Staff Instructor Timtam.
He joined us as a trainee back in 2009, starting with the PADI Divemaster qualification and then continued with the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC). Seeing his commitment to his job and the hard work that he put in, he was offered employment with Downbelow and was based at our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre at Gaya Island, Borneo.
Today he is a PADI IDC Staff Instructor and as a testament to his hardwork, he was awarded the Elite Instructor Award for certifying 100 or more divers for the year 2013.
We are very proud of his achievement and we are happy to see his career grow rapidly!
Keep it up Timtam and continue to work hard!
