Platinum PADI Course Director Marie-Lise Roux teaches the PADI IDC (Instructor Course) in English, French and Arabic and has many years of experience to share. Despite the fact that she is very small, you would be surprised to see what comes out of her personality!
Marie is from Quebec, Canada. She has started her career 10 years ago in Egypt, Dahab, where she’s been working for 5 years as a Dive Master before heading to Koh Tao, Thailand, to become an Instructor.
“To be part of the Dive-Careers team is something! Some days I wake up in a different country, grab a coffee and think…wow…what a life it is! This morning, I get to teach an IDC in the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Andaman Island, South Africa or in another one of our destinations. How can it get better then that!
Mark Soworka took me under his wing many years ago after having taught me my IDC and here I am today, Platinum Course Director working for one of the best team you can think of. Dive-Careers is such an opportunity. Actually, yep, opportunity is the best word to use. It’s an opportunity for us to share our passion around the world and it’s an opportunity for many to become dive professionals in one of these beautiful paradises around world.
We managed to open some markets that were undeveloped, managed to give the chance to a lot of people to finally realize their dream, as before it was not possible to do it close to their home. And boom… Dive-Careers made a move closer to their place and opened the doors.
What Dive-Careers offers is unbelievable. There are possibilities of being trained in different languages, but also a lot of experience to share and talk about with the candidates. To become a PADI Dive Master and Instructor is a big step up and there is no doubt that we make sure the step is being done in a proper way.
The day our candidates are holding their certificate in hand, I am 100% sure that yes, they are ready to lead, guide and teach at a very high level. Such a pleasure as well to travel the world and actually meet, in every single place I go, dive professionals who has been trained by us!
And the best of all…it’s not over! There is even more to come!!”
