Congratulations to our staff and facility as qualifying as the exclusive IAHD Adaptive Diver training facility in the Bay Islands of Honduras, offering both dive partner and Instructor level training!
Successful IAHD Instructor Trainer and Instructors from the Utila Dive Centre program with IAHD Americas head David Valaika
Several of our staff at the Utila Dive Centre recently qualified as IAHD Instructors, and our resident Course Director Andy Phillips qualified as an IAHD Pro Trainer. The IAHD Americas is a registered non-profit 501 (c) 3 organisation, that offers training programs so dive partners, and dive professionals can introduce 'disabled divers' to the magic of the underwater world.
IAHD-Americas offers several levels of certification/supervision for divers with disabilities, and now through one of the premier PADI Career Development Centers in the world, the Utila Dive Centre. Our staff will be able to train divers as IAHD 'dive partners' so they can be responsible and safe dive buddies, and we will soon be integrating the IAHD 'Pro diver' into our Divemaster and Instructor programs, further qualifying our dive professionals and to the dive community, and also to use scuba diving as a powerful rehabilitative tool.
