Meet Your Course Director

My name is Michal - but friends call me Mike.

I am a PADI Course Director and I am ... in love with diving.
The passion for diving is a lifelong companion for me - my first diving course was in 1991. The following years brought more courses in different organizations with different instructors. In 2004, I became a PADI Instructor and Tec Diver. During my dive life, I met many passionate people, met extraordinary people fascinated by the underwater world, visited the most beautiful dive sites in the world, and realized my own passion for underwater photography.

    TecDeep Course May 2024. Once again, thank Mike for taking the Tec Rec course, since I have previously taken the instructor course. He has complemented me with the new knowledge he has taught me and the attention he provided at all times. Thank you not only for the teaching both in the water and outside but for the experience I have had. Thank you so much Mike! Until the next course!

    IDC May 2024 + MSDT Preparation. Ho finito da poco l’IDC con mike e non posso fare altro che ringraziarlo per la preparazione fornitomi. Sono arrivato all’IDC preparato con la teoria, però con qualche piccola paura sul come riuscire in poco tempo a poter insegnare. Dopo pochi giorni dall’inizio già queste paure non c’erano più, mi sono trovato subito a mio agio e ho capito che con l’andare del corso avrei imparato moltissime altre cose e sarei stato pronto a fare qualunque corso, e così è stato. Grazie mike per la pazienza e ci si vede presto.

    IDC May 2024 + MSDT Preparation. I can just say good things about doing the IDC with Mike. He delivered us all the knowledge to be successful for the IE in a very efficient way: he was always using on us teaching methods that he was currently teaching us. I arrived to the IDC well prepared, but I am happy to say that I learned an impressive amount of things. We covered together all the IE parts (dive theory, PADI standards, in water training…) but he gave us a lot more than that. He managed to make this IDC an unforgettable moment for me and for the new friends I met there. We were a small group of four during the 14 days. The study room was in brand new shape and offered all the material to make the teaching efficient. Mike’s organisation and experience were very valuable. Thank you so much Mike for this life changing experience!

    IDC January 2024 + MSDT Preparation. After completing the IDC with Mike I can say that it will make you confident to pass the IE. The exercises for the theory as well as the practical part will prepare you well to become a professional diving instructor.  His main goal is to develop your knowledge in diving and for you to pass the IE. Especially the learning environment with the other students makes the experience more fun.  I can only recommend it!
