What do you get when you have Drs Alessandro Marroni, Óscar Camacho and Simon Mitchell in the same room?
Undoubtedly an incredible amount of knowledge in research, diving physiology and hyperbaric medicine. If you are a Diver, you know the value of such a debate.
If there are topics that serious divers are really concerned about, we are sure they will be addressed in this debate. The Panel has enough time to discuss many important related issues, and we count on the attendees’ participation to make it even more interesting.
PADI, SDI and SSI in the same room, discussing the future of teaching in diving.
Imagine having PADI, SDI and SSI in the same room to discuss the future of teaching in diving. This would be an exciting debate, wouldn’t it? Knowing the divers representing these organizations in this debate – Jean-Claude Monachon, Mark Caney and Mark Powell – there’s no doubt it will be an incredible event.
Jean-Claude Monachon joined SSI after climbing the stairs of a prominent diving organization and being a CEO for over 20 years, where he continued to dedicate his passion to helping SSI – Scuba Schools International to change the approach and move completely to a digital version of the programs, which certainly helped to change the approach of the diving education. Mark Caney is the President of the European Underwater Federation, is President of the Rebreather Training Council and continues to serve in senior positions in leading diving industry bodies such as the World Recreational Scuba Training Council. He is also the chairman of PADI AWARE Foundation for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Mark is a TDI Instructor Trainer and a member of TDI’s Global Training Advisor Panel. He is a regular contributor to a number of diving magazines and a regular speaker at Diving conferences around the world. Mark represents TDI on the British Diving Safety Group and the HSE Recreational Diving Industry Committee, as well as being a member of the Diver Training and Breathing Apparatus committees at the British Standards Institute.
