Aitor will join Platinum-rated Course Directors Angel Navarro Moya (also from Spain) and Jo Armitage (from the UK) to make Pro Dive Mexico the only IDC facility in the Americas with three full-time Course Directors providing professional-level training to its Divemaster and Instructor candidates.

He has been a valued member of our GoPro team since joining us and I look forward to many more years of success as a team of three full-time Course Directors here at Pro Dive Mexico,” says Angel.
