Pro Dive Mexico´s two Platinum Directors

Riviera Maya & Cozumel, Q.Roo, Mexico - Pro Dive Mexico, proudly announce that both their Course Directors ANGEL NAVARRO MOYA for his 7TH CONSECUTIVE YEAR and JO ARMITAGE for the FIRST TIME within her FIRST YEAR as Course Director, have been awarded the prestigious PLATINUM STATUS from PADI for their outstanding Instructor Development achievements during 2013.

This makes Pro Dive Mexico the only PADI CDC center in Mexico and North America with two permanent Platinum Course Directors on staff.

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

Husband and wife team Angel Navarro Moya, originally from Spain and Jo Armitage, from the UK, run PADI Instructor Development Programs in Spanish and English for Pro Dive Mexico in Playa del Carmen and Cozumel. They have a well-deserved reputation for providing high quality training with an emphasis on thoroughly preparing their candidates for careers in the scuba industry, which results in passing rates of their instructor candidates at their examinations that are second to none. Angel also runs Instructor training programs
for Disabled Divers International.

With annually 8 IDC´s involving more than 60 candidates, Jo and Angel always strive to provide their students the very best start to their diving careers, pass on many useful tips
and knowledge referring to their own experience for decades, which includes more than 3,000 certifications for Angel and 800+ for Jo in Mexico, Honduras, Galapagos, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Curacao and UK.

Angel affirms: "I'm very happy to have been awarded Platinum status by PADI for another year. I would like to thank Pro Dive Mexico for their general support as well as our fantastic team of IDC Staff Instructors who have helped us conducting our training courses, and of course our candidates. It's been a pleasure working with them all.”

"I'm thrilled to have received Platinum status for my first year working as a Course Director. It has been great fun and I'm looking forward to another busy year of IDCs here at Pro Dive Mexico!" Jo states.

The NEXT IDC with Jo & Angel is due to start on FEBRUARY, 6th, 2015!

When asking Jo and Angel for their reasons of choosing to work with Pro Dive Mexico, they spontaneously agreed to share the same philosophy “EXCELLENCE THROUGH QUALITY”, highlight that Pro Dive Mexico belongs to one of the most established and recognized IDC Centers in Latin America, as well as the fantastic outlook for successful instructor graduates to start their careers in one of Pro Dive Mexico´s PADI 5* Dive Centers located at several 4-5* Resorts along the Riviera Maya and in Cozumel, each recognized with the National Geographic Award and Green Star Award.

Pro Dive Mexico, a PADI 5-Star Gold Palm Resort founded in 2003 and renowned for their excellent quality and guest services, is one of the fastest-growing companies in Mexico, able to provide world-class dive and snorkel excursions, the full array of PADI courses, Stay & Dive packages, unlimited free Nitrox, as well as their own transportation system, a multi-lingual reservations team and equipment maintenance department. All guides are certified Master Scuba Diver Trainers able to teach in several languages.
