Ever considered taking your PADI Courses in Pattaya?
Hopefully this will help
The Professional Association of Diving Instructors ( PADI ) is the world’s largest recreational diving membership and diver training organisation founded in 1966 by John Cronin and Ralph Erickson. Cronin was originally a NAUI instructor who decided to form his own organization with Erickson, and to break diver training down into several modular courses instead of the single universal course then prevalent.
Thousands of people come to Thailand to dive every year. With crystal clear waters, hundreds of square miles of the water to explore and some of the best coral reefs in the world, it seems like the perfect place to learn to dive.
There is another reason to head to Thailand to do your PADI course. Learning to become a diving instructor means that you then qualify for a non-immigrant educational visa (ED Visa). When the visa is obtained it lasts for 90 days at a time with no need in between to go to immigration. It is the perfect choice for people looking to gain there PADI qualification and at the same time explore this beautiful country.
So whether you are an aspiring diver looking to obtain the ultimate qualification or you are looking for a way to extend your stay in Thailand, the PADI course is definitely worth considering.
