Downbelow today proudly received an award from PADI Asia Pacific for “Recognition Of Outstanding Contribution To Instructor Development”.
The surprise award was hand delivered by PADI Asia Pacific Regional Manager Johnny Chew who dropped in for a visit at our KK Times Square headquarters.
Richard Swann, Downbelow’s Managing Director and resident PADI Course Director, along with Joanne Swann, Marketing Director and PADI Master Instructor were delighted to receive him.
Johnny took the opportunity to say hi to our current batch of IDC & IDC Staff candidates who have just started our November Instructor Development Course. Johnny also had a stroll around our dive shop, freely sharing his wealth of knowledge and advice.
Reflecting on the award, Richard said “thanks must go to our entire Go Pro Team and staff.”
“Especially the amazing support from our head office who do such a great job providing information to prospective candidates,” he added.
Richard also that thanks has to go to PADI Asia Pacific without whose support Instructor Development would not be possible.
