International Association of Diving Schools
The I.A.D.S. is an organization which is housed in a foundation with professional support. Associations and individual members are affiliated with the IADS
The founders are independent instructors who spent years developing extensive knowledge and skills in diving. The instructors earned their mark for diving in the Netherlands and overseas.
So ... it is an organization for divers made by divers.
The organization was established in 1982 by Mr. Rob Dijkman and Mr. Pieter Hendriks. The Foundation has grown to more than 7,500 members and 450 ± instructors who are working in about 270 diving schools and diving clubs. Over 25,000 divers are trained by the I.A.D.S. instructors.
The choice to make it a foundation form was rapid decision-making compared to the association form.
The I.A.D.S. is registered at the Chamber of Commerce in Amsterdam. The statutes of the foundation are ,on written request, available at the head office in Haarlem, Netherlands.
There are also several offices abroad. The I.A.D.S. is known worldwide for its diving bases and diving organizations. Licenses, achieved in the military, fire brigades and other training organizations can be scaled to an (international) IADS certified diver certificate and diving license.
