Ingrid Wittmann is Emperor Divers' Chief Instructor and IDC co-ordinator. Born in Germany, Ingrid started diving in 1989, became Dive Master in Hurghada in 1992 and Instructor in Sharm in the same year, then a Master Instructor in 1996. In 2004, she became a Course Director and was recently awarded Silver Level Course Director for her achievements.
Ingrid has certified more than 1.200 PADI divers at all levels, logged more than 5000 dives, taught over 100 instructors in less than two years with 50 being IDC candidates. She has also received several Certificates of Recognition for Excellence for outstanding customer service and professionalism in PADI scuba instruction since 1995.
And Ingrid has a fair old depth of location experience having worked as an instructor/dive guide in Sharm, Dahab, Hurghada, Safaga, Taba, Eilat (Israel), Seychelles, Comoros Islands, Indonesia (Gili Trawangan/Lombok), Maldives, Germany and Austria (fresh water lakes!).
On top of all that, Ingrid is certified to teach most PADI Speciality Courses and is a DAN Instructor Trainer. Oh and she's fluent in both German (obviously!) and English.
Many congratulations Ingrid! So what's next on the agenda?
