Expelled PADI Professionals

Expelled Individual Pros

The following list identifies former individual PADI Members who have been expelled from the PADI organization within the last few years. These individuals are no longer PADI Members, can’t conduct PADI courses nor represent themselves as PADI Members.

Note that expulsion is a last resort. The PADI Quality Management Program follows an extensive process that includes fact checking, getting all perspectives about the issue (including the member’s) and, when necessary, offering corrective retraining and cooperative compliance. Expulsion results when the PADI Member refuses to implement corrective measures, or when the nature of the complaint is so severe that expulsion is necessary to protect the public or to preserve the reputation of the PADI organization.

If you have any questions about an individual listed, please contact the Quality Management Department at a PADI Regional Headquarters.
