    Hello all,

    My wife and I are both working as PADI OWSI, but were also CMAS trained as divers (to *** level).

    We don't live in Europe anymore, but would love to do some additional training, and were considering a crossover to CMAS** instructor, as we miss the non WRSTC approach we had during our diver training, and also to see and learn something new, but this is proving quite hard to find.

    Would anyone know of a good place to do this kind of training, if any?

    Thanks a bunch

    This might be difficult
    Each federation has its own way of making a crossover and there can be more than one federation in a country.
    And this is only if they have a crossover course.
    In Denmark we do have a crossover, but this will mostly teach you the differences between your current training agency and the way the Danish Sportsdiving Association is working and has implemented the CMAS system.

    CMAS TC is also helping federations with this Cross Over Course in Lebanon

    Regards

    Thanks.
    I've also heard good things about Madagascar, where a CMAS federation was set up based on French standards, and using the same material.
