Pro Dive International, one of the Caribbean’s most-established PADI five-star Dive Resorts and recognised Career Development Centres, has announced that both of their Course Directors, Angel Navarro Moya and Jo Armitage, have been awarded the prestigious Platinum Status from PADI for their outstanding instructor development achievements during 2016.

This is Angel’s tenth, and Jo’s fourth, consecutive year receiving these awards since becoming Course Directors.

The Platinum Award is the highest accolade awarded to only a few Course Directors worldwide each year for their instructional achievements and commitment to professional-level educational excellence.

“Angel and I constantly strive to give the best possible training to our instructor candidates.  With 14 years combined experience as Platinum Course Directors, and many more years’ teaching experience around the world, we can pass on advice, tips and knowledge which will help our students in their future careers.” says Jo.

Husband-and-wife team Angel Navarro Moya from Spain and Jo Armitage from the UK run PADI Instructor Development Programmes in Spanish and English for Pro Dive International in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Their reputation is well-deserved for providing high-quality training with an emphasis on thorough preparation of their candidates for careers in the scuba industry, resulting in passing rates of their candidates that are second to none. They also offer post-IDC vocational training to help new instructors gain on-the-job training.

Angel stated: “I am honored to have achieved the milestone of ten consecutive years as a Platinum Course Director. Having trained instructors in various places around the world I am happy to call Pro Dive International and Mexico my home as this region has the best opportunities for future dive professionals in terms of career prospects, way of life, and sea-life as well as the unique cenotes and cave systems.”
