IDD World Academy

The IDD certification is next to PADI, SSI and NOB the Dutch training organization with hundreds of affiliated diving schools in the Netherlands, Curacao, Thailand and many more places in the world. We are proud to say that we have been around since 1992 and we were the first European professional dive organisation to develop the modular teaching system. Besides the basic diver courses we also offer many specialties which you can do if you have been diving for a while. If you are certified by one of the other organisations that is no problem.
