Membership Supporting a Change for Good
For over a decade, PADI has donated 100 percent of the instructor application fees for Dive Against Debris and Shark Conservation Specialties to the PADI AWARE FoundationTM. These donations support the largest underwater marine debris movement on the planet, and the protection of vulnerable shark and ray species. And now, to make teaching conservation more accessible than ever, PADI and PADI AWARE Foundation are waiving the all AWARE instructor application fees. This means all of the PADI Pros on your staff can apply for and teach AWARE courses for free to stand-up for the ocean. There is a suggested donation of US$30 (or more) when applying to continue to support the Foundation’s critical efforts. PADI Offices worldwide are also donating a portion of student eLearning fees to the PADI AWARE Foundation to help drive the PADI Blueprint for Ocean Action.
