Instructional Team

Experienced PADI and CMAS Instructional Team

Alex Diamond

Alex Diamond (BSc (Econ)), Owner, is a PADI Course Director and Emergency First Response Instructor. He is also a CMAS Instructor ** and holds the French Brevet D’Etat – the government recognised scuba diving instructor qualification.  Alex is one of only a handful of English nationals ever to have qualified fully in the French system. This gives him a unique understanding and insight into the French diving scene.

In 2010 he was retained by the CREPS Antibes (regional centre of excellence in sport) to teach future French diving instructors “Diving English”, and continues to do this on an ad hoc basis.

Prior to establishing Diamond Diving he worked for one of the largest PADI Dive Centres in France, based in Saint Raphaël. Previously he worked in sales and marketing for nine years (1996-2003), first for sports pr agency Jardine PR International and then for COI Communications, the UK government’s marketing agency.

Noemie Broglio

Having completed studies in physical education and fish-farming, Noemie found her true vocation as a very patient and talented diving instructor. She has worked previously for two of the most professional PADI diving centres along the Cote D’Azur, and has been responsible for the diving section in a branch of a large French sports retail outlet. Like Alex she is dual qualified in both the PADI and French CMAS systems. She is a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer and also holds the Brevet D’Etat. Noemie runs the business with Alex, with an emphasis on the dive centre in Golfe Juan and keeps things as organised as possible.

The team is supplemented by other dual qualified Brevet d’Etat and and PADI Instructors during the high season together with a number of individuals learning the trade and doing their Divemaster Internships.
