PDA is a diving federation founded in 1995 in Germany. Thanks to the PDA training standards, a high level of training was achieved for diving students and PDA instructors.

PDA is represented in German-speaking countries as well as in parts of Europe with service centers. Worldwide, PDA has already reached North and South America as well as Asia. Other countries will find their way to PDA, true to our motto:
