Applications are currently being accepted for the 2008 Platinum Pro 5000 Diver Inductees. This is a non-affiliated award. Any diver from any agency should apply.

Being honored with the Platinum Pro 5000 Diver Award places you among the world’s most experienced water explorers. The list of cardholders is a “who’s who” of diving, containing the world’s most prominent dive leaders, scientists, photographers, manufacturers, retailers, and resort operators. This honor cannot be purchased. Individuals must apply for the award and be recommended in writing by two Platinum Pros.

What makes the award so special is that it’s all about diving. The unsung dive master on any island and Jacques Cousteau earned their cards the same way—by diving 5,000 times, or diving 2,500 times and making a documented, significant contribution to the recreational scuba diving industry.

Becoming a Platinum Pro is a great way to be honored for your diving accomplishments. This award is truly about you and nothing else.
