PADI Platinum Course Director Bent Posejpal

Bent "It's hard to admit you're Bent" Posejpal is one of a group of select PADI Course Directors who hold the highest rating PADI has to offer, the Platinum Level. This means that he outshines the competition in knowledge, experience and professional standards. Bent was recently presented with an award for 20 years of outstanding service as a member of PADI, and is probably now the most experienced course director in all of Thailand. Bent's knowledge of the PADI system of diving education is second to none. Bent has been diving Phuket since 1989. PADI began their Course Director rating system in 2007 but since the beginning, Bent has been consistently at the top of his craft.

Phuket PADI CDC Training Facilities

Not only will you have the best course director, you'll also have the best Career Development Center facilities that Thailand has to offer during your instructor training. We do our training in Phuket at Sea Fun Divers, a PADI 5-Star CDC Center (S-2802) located at Le Meridien Beach Resort, Phuket. This is the highest Dive Center rating in PADI, and there are only a handful CDCs in the world. Le Meridien and Sea Fun Divers offer probably the best facilities in the country for teaching as we have the largest swimming pool in Phuket, several classrooms, and direct beach access for high quality beach scuba diving. Accommodation is usually arranged at a guest house away from the hotel but we provide daily free transportation and free lunch for you during your IDC. Check out our videos of the resort and Phuket for more information.
