My Dive-CV

I am a IDC Staff Instructor with PADI (Professional Association for Diving Instructors) and a Dive Control Specialist Instructor with SSI (Scuba Schools International). So I can teach scuba diving from beginner level and up to Assistant Instructor level, in addition to most specialities. I am also a Emergency First Response Instructor Trainer with Emergency First Response, so that I can teach First Aid Instructors. In addion I am a Oxygen First Aid Instructor and Harzardous Marine Life Injury Instructor with Divers Alert Network.

My first introduction to scuba diving in warm water was at Phi Phi Islands in Thailand. A couple of minutes after I entered the water for the first time I was hooked on it to such a degree that I knew it was the field I would like to work within at some point. From then things went quite fast and I became a dive instructor, at some point I went back to teach scuba diving at the same place that I did my first introduction to scuba diving in warm water.

Dives and certifications
I have more then 4000 logged dives to date in Europe and Asia. This number do not include training dives with students where the main focus has been to practice skills. As I have always worked in very busy dive shops and hold membership with several training agencies, my number of certifications is very high for the period I have been a dive instructor. In total I have issued 1000+ certifications of all levels with PADI, SSI, EFR and DAN.
