We are very proud of our teams of Instructors & Divemasters here at Big Blue. Generally every member of staff at Big Blue has under some form or other undergone rather vigorous training whether it be in the form of alearning through a course with us, or an internship, so that with the guidance of one of our existing high performance educators they truely get to learn the ropes. The how's why's & what's of the system at Big Blue if you like. This way the candidate can truely make the decision as to whether they want to work at Big Blue or not & we can tell too as to whether the applicant is of the exceptional quality we are looking for in our staff with regards to character, professionalism, knowledge & amicability. And so it goes with pretty much all our Instructors & our Divemasters. Its extremely rare we employ from outside this framework but if we do you can bet your booties its cos we've struck gold. & with Ernie, We struck gold! 5 very happy years at Big Blue for him & us in which he won Big Blue Diving's staff awards in the form of Best Dive Staff, Best Instructor & the prestigious Instructors Choice Award for 2016. In his time with us he also recieved SSI's highest honour with the Platinum Pro 5000 Award. A true Spanish legend. So it is with great sadness we bid our amigo adios as he heads to Mexico for new adventures and from all of us at Big Blue we wish you all the best for your future & thank you for everything you have done for all us in the past 5 years. Adios Muchacho, you will be sorely missed.
