Career and Experience
Chew Poh Chang has been diving since 1991. His passion for diving sees him
progress from a recreational diver to Instructor and Course Director with
His drive to continue his education and seeking new skills and knowledge
to explore beyond recreational limits lead him to cross over to IANTD in
1998 and gradually progressed to Technical Instructor level with both
IANTD and NAUI Tech.
Poh Chang has been teaching for more than 20 years and has trained
recreational divers, technical divers, instructors and instructor
trainers. He is an instructor with NAUI, IANTD, DAN and now, UTD. His key
focus is to provide safe and quality training, actively promoting UTD and
Hogarthian philosophies and encourages divers to be a "thinking diver".
His diving has been mainly in exploring the deep wrecks in South China
Sea, spectacular wall diving in Celebes Seas and atolls of the India Ocean
around Asia Pacific region. In his leisure time, another newly developed
passion is to cruise through the wrecks with his underwater scooter and
documenting the wonders of underwater with his video camera.
