It’s exciting times at PADI, with nearly 25 million certifications being issued over the last 50 years.
To celebrate 50 years as The Way the World Learns to Dive®, we’re giving away a dream dive trip to the diver who receives certification number 25,000,000!
This milestone is expected to happen sometime around December 2016 or January 2017. The lucky individual who is issued the 25 millionth certification (and his/her buddy) will win a dream dive vacation to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.
PADI Instructors won’t be left out, either. The PADI Member who certifies the 25 millionth student will also win a trip to the Great Barrier Reef!
Watch for further news and the best way to make sure your hat is in the ring is to just keep on training confident and competent divers. That’s what brought us to this incredible milestone in the first place. Don’t forget to let divers know they’re part of something big and important, and take pride in issuing the next 25 million PADI certifications.
