A great TEC week sponsored by PADI has just finished at Sheikh Coast Diving Center!

Thanks to the new partnership between PADI Course Director,  TecRec Instructor Trainer and CCR Instructor  Massimo2012-11-24 14.59.26 (640x480) Casabianca and Sheikh Coast, a new division has been born: Sheikh Coast Tec and Rebreather Center. Powered by Divesystem, the new division intends to be the benchmark for all those aiming to become Tec, Sidemount and Rebreather divers in Sharm el Sheikh.

The week started with PADI Regional Manager, Teo Brambilla, awarding Sheikh Coast Tec and Rebreather Center PADI TEC CENTER status.


To reinforce the message and inform recreational Instructors attending the event about how to go the Tec training route, Teo gave a presentation on the full range of PADI TecRec courses now available.

This was also a great opportunity for everybody to meet with Paolo Zazzeri (Divesystem CEO )and learn more about Sheikh Coast T&R becoming a Dive System test center:  from January 2013 it will be possible to test the full range of Divesystem equipment and accessories there.

……Some PROS enrolled in the PADI sidemount courses, while others enrolled in the PADI rebreather diver course with one of the POSEIDON MK VI now available at Sheikh Coast T&R.

The week ended with another surprise: Massimo Mazzolini, Operations Manager at Sheikh Coast, received his 10 year Anniversary PADI Member award!

Instructors, Divemasters, counter and sales staff all gathered at the Sheraton Hotel to attend the workshop!

Focusing on the role that Instructors have in the diving industry, Teo went through the basics of the Continuing Education Philosophy before introducing the ‘art’ of counseling.

The final aim was to increase the number of Continuing Education Courses  by developing  the right staff attitude as sales people: to be able to listen to customers to gather information, present the sale, handle objections and to close the sale.

Everything covered in the workshop was supported by real examples from Teo’s personal experience in the field as a PADI Instructor, Course Director and Dive Center owner.

Running a Positive Approach Selling workshop is a great idea for any PADI Cen­ter, so if you are inter­ested please get in contact with Teo and he will be happy to organize a tailor made workshop for your business.
