We are a British family who have a Padi 5 Star IDC Dive Centre in North Cyprus.
We are extremely proud that owner Cengiz is the first and only PADI Course Director in North Cyprus.
Experienced since 1993, he has taught in England at one of the busiest and most reputable dive centres on the south coast of England, Newhaven Scuba Centre.
The Course Director level is the pinnacle of the PADI System of diver education, representing less than one percent of all PADI Members. Course Director hopefuls submit an application for acceptance into one of two annual Course Director Training Courses. From almost 200 applications submitted each year only about 70 participants are selected to attend the two week long Course Director Training Course (CDTC). The Course Director rating is the equivalent of having a postgraduate degree in scuba diving instruction, there is not a more prestigious level of certification within the dive industry.
So rest assured that when diving with North Cyprus British Scuba whether you are an experienced Diver or a Novice eager to learn you have chosen the best.
