Dear IANTD certified divers or soon to be …

These lists are regularly updated. In case you do not find your instructor listed here or for any other enquiry, please contact us.

Once you have obtained your certification in the warm and clear waters of Middle East, please remember it is recommended that: divers trained in a diving environment differing from where they may be diving or intending to dive complete an environmental checkout in the conditions where diving will take place. We therefore advise you to contact an IANTD instructor or the IANTD office of your home country to dive safely in your area.

Dear IANTD Instructors and Instructor Trainers

In order to provide you with all benefits and assistance and in order to quickly process the certifications of your students for courses completed in Middle East, we kindly remind you to contact us shortly before or immediately after your arrival in Middle East. If the period of your stay is for a maximum of 90 days, you keep your membership with your home country IANTD Office but certify through IANTD Middle East. If you intend to stay for a longer period, you are requested to transfer your membership to IANTD Middle East in order to keep your active teaching status with IANTD. You will then be automatically added to our online instructors list.

We require Instructors and Trainers teaching local residents a qualification course that travel to Middle East for part of the course to notify us that you will be doing training here.

If you are planning shore diving or a safari diving trip with your group, we will be pleased to help you in all logistical aspects of your trip to Middle East.
