Where I am

The PADI Instructor Courses must be taught normally in approved facilities.

BarattiMy natural headquarter is in Tuscany, and is the PADI Gold Palm IDC BLUE SUBMARINE.

I work stably also with R-Sub dive centre in Montecatini and with MaxiSport dive resort in Florence - both PADI Instructor centres.
But in recent years I conducted Instructor courses also by PADI centers in other areas, even outside of Tuscany and especially in Piemonte, Veneto, Emilia Romagna, Marche and Calabria, so - when and if there is the opportunity - I can ask PADI to grant an Alternate Location or I make a temporary agreement with an existing center and I lead Instructor courses also in these regions.

The situation is different for other agencies - EFR, DAN and IAHD - as these do not require any pre-requisite and I can work anywhere without problems. So I can say I am a traveling and always available Course Director.

From 2015 I will be available again also in Baratti, the original site of BLUE SUBMARINE since 1993, to dive on the coast of Promontory of Piombino and Island of Elba for fun programs, with my partners' help.
