The annual PADI Frequent Trainer program awards are designed to recognize the most active PADI Course Directors worldwide and awards are given based on the number of candidates who choose to complete their Instructor training with a particular Course Director, plus how many candidates stay on to continue their education and how much support Course Directors can offer in terms of career development after the course. The Platinum award is the highest available within the Instructor Development system and recognizes Holly’s overall commitment to the PADI Education system and her pure experience in Instructor training and development. The annual PADI Frequent Trainer program awards a Gold, Silver and Platinum rating dependent on the total number of Instructors a Course Director has certified within the given year.

The program itself has also received recognition through the PADI “Commitment to Instructor Development” Award for its pure educational distinctions.
