Your PDA Team
Who or what is PDA?
PDA is an international diving education organization, which means that your diving certification is recognized worldwide. We certify divers internationally through our different training programs, we provide teaching materials to students and instructors, set standards and monitor these and we teach and certify instructors, focusing on safe diving practices and fun. We are also registered at RSTC and EUF!
New: PDA eLearning
Can I learn to dive online on the computer?
Of course not! Diving is a sport that requires a lot of hands-on practice and experience. The practice of diving can not be learned in a classroom or at the computer. Diving is learned by diving. Initially instructed by an experienced instructor – later by your own diving adventure.
So what is PDA eLearning?
In order to be able to practice diving safely you need a secure theoretical foundation. The foundation for this is laid in the theoretical part of your PDA Open Water Diver Course and PDA Advanced Open Water Diver Course. Self-study and with your PDA Instructor, you will gain the basic knowledge you need to survive in an environment where you are not „constructed“ as a human being. And this is where the PDA eLearning program comes in. The theoretical part of the PDA Open Water Diver course and PDA Advanced Open Water Diver course can be done at home. You can free up your time and concentrate fully on practical diving training during your diving holiday. Of course, you will not be left alone in eLearning. During the course you can ask me questions online.

Diving is a fantastic adventure!
No matter where you go diving. In the local lake, in the Baltic Sea with wonderfully preserved wrecks, in the Mediterranean with its bizarre underwater landscapes, in the beautiful Red Sea, in the Caribbean, or in the most species-rich waters of the world, the reefs of the Philippines …
Diving is a very safe sport, but only if you have acquired the appropriate knowledge and skills from a good instructor, stay within your abilities, and constantly practice and expand it.
