PADI Course Director Artin Zaman
Artin has studied veterinary medicine and was not involved with any creature who lives underwater until he decided to open his own veterinary clinic and as part of the decoration he decided to have a big size aquarium installed. Seeing the fishes underwater and learning about them created such a big interest in him that his doctorate thesis was on fish A Anaesthesia.
He also got involved into running multiple business all related to fish and fish farms. Mean time more than 11 years ago he took his first breath underwater in Persian Gulf and to make sure that diving is actually that much fun few months later he travelled to Phuket to give it another try. That all he needed to fall in love with underwater world. He gradually managed to do his courses and travel to many diving locations around the world.
Artin decided he will never get enough time to dive as much as he wanted to, so he decided to move to Phuket on late 2009 and work as an Instructor. In short time he was staffing IDCs with Course Director at Dive Asia (Mr. Bjorn Tackmann). Working alongside with experienced CDs in numerous IDCs gave him opportunity to learn more and more about diving and diving industry.
Due to his studies Artin has a very good knowledge about animal kingdom specially underwater creatures.
He is speaks English, Persian, and he can understand German, Turkish and limited Arabic.
Artin Love to teach and dive, He is very patient and like everything to be organized.
