About the Course Director

John Meyer is certified as a Course Director through PADI (the Professional Association of Diving Instructors), the world's largest diver training agency. As a Course Director  he holds the highest instructional certification issued by PADI. Less than 1% of instructors worldwide are offered this certification level. This certification means that he teaches not only the entry-level courses, but the entire PADI selection of advanced and professional levels for recreational divers.  He also teaches people who want to be instructors and conduct continuing education courses for instructors.

He teaches 21 specialties in addition to the basic scuba courses and is also an Instructor Trainer for these specialties as well as for Emergency First Response, a standard 8-hour First Aid-CPR course and the EFR "Care or Children" program.

John has been involved in scuba instruction for over 31 years with a career dive total of 2400+ dives throughout the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean, in a wide variety of diving environments. His training activities are supported by highly trained PADI Divemasters and Assistant Instructors, Instructors and IDC Staff Instructors. 

He is dedicated to the PADI System of Diver Education because their system of learning is fun and flexible to your needs, their materials are designed using the latest educational and computer-based techniques. The courses are regularly updated to incorporate newer diving techniques and are specifically aimed at making it fun, convenient and easy for everyone to become a safe, comfortable diver.

John regularly participates in continuing education courses through PADI International in order to provide you with the latest instructional techniques for learning scuba in your own time. Please contact John if you would like have a personal meeting to get a feel for the style of instruction you will be getting and have the opportunity to discuss your particular needs.
