Are you using the most up-to-date forms?

sales-formsWe receive applications every day for PADI Divemaster, Specialty Instructor and TecRec Instructor ratings and we commonly find that old forms are being used which are no longer valid.

It is vital that you use the most recent forms as they contain updated information about standard changes with clear instructions.

You can check the Training Bulletin announcements and the PADI Pros’ Site under the Training Essentials, Forms and Applications section for any updated forms.

Additionally, please ensure that you use the most current Risk Management form as well. Some liability release documents may not contain the Non-Agency Disclosure and Acknowledgment Agreement which you can download as a standalone document for your student/participants to complete.

  • A voice of PADI within their community and spheres of influence.
  • A positive influence for PADI’s audience to start, keep or teach diving.
  • A brand advocate of PADI through social platforms, events and relevant engagements.
  • A safe, responsible diver who respects marine life and the environment.
