in scuba diving education.

Our IDC courses will begin February 2024 and be supervised under the watchful eyes of our two resident
PADI Course Directors, Jillian Healey in Sharm El Sheikh and Andreas Fuchs (Andi) in Dahab.
Jilly, our dive centre manager in Sharm El Sheikh has been working in the Sharm El Sheikh scuba diving
industry for just short of 25 years having arrived in Sharm El Sheikh in 1999. In 2009 Jilly became a PADI
Course Director and has managed many successful courses.
Jilly is known in the dive community for her high levels of professionalism and experience
in both teaching and guiding. Many of the candidates Jilly has taught have gone on to
become highly regarded dive professionals and Instructors.
Andi, our dive center manager at Circle Divers Dahab, brings the same levels of professionalism to the
diving industry which he established in a successful law career in his native Germany.
A Course Director since 2021, Andi is one of the newest PADI Course Directors with the freshest IDC
knowledge as he was trained recently by the people who actually designed the Instructor Development
Course as it is today.
Circle Divers and both our Course Directors mission is to not only teach our candidates to pass an exam
but even more importantly develop our circle of divers into outstanding dive professionals and
Stay tuned for upcoming IDC schedules, special promotions, and dive into a world of endless possibilities
