As a PADI Instructor actively training and certifying divers, you can distinguish yourself by earning the PADI Elite Instructor Award, giving you the opportunity to tout your “Elite Instructor” status to student divers, potential customers, prospective employers and fellow PADI Professionals!
This program recognizes PADI Instructors for reaching milestones based on the number of certifications issued during the calendar year (50, 100, 150, 200 or 300). You’ll automatically receive the award if you issue qualifying certifications during 1st January-31st December 2017.
What does the PADI Elite Instructor Award mean to PADI Professionals?
The PADI Elite Instructor Award recognises PADI Professionals across the globe. We’ve been catching up with some of the winners from the Europe, Middle East and Africa region to find out more about their journey to becoming an Elite Instructor, and what this exclusive award means to them.

“Congratulations to the PADI Pros who achieved Elite status during 2016. This is an outstanding achievement and a testament to your hard work and commitment to PADI. As an Elite Instructor, you are able to promote your success by showing your Elite Instructor e-badge on your Social Media pages. This is also an excellent opportunity for PADI Dive Stores to take advantage of the increased marketing potential that Elite Instructors bring to them.” – Mark Spiers, Vice President Training, Sales and Field Services, PADI Europe, Middle East and Africa.
