A little about Mike

 

My name is Mike Ballas and I am your Aquatic World South instructor.  By day, I am an Instructional Designer and have been facilitating and designing training programs for 30 years.  I have always been fascinated with what is under the surface of the water; whether it is the aquatic life or shipwrecks.  I wanted to know and see what was down there.  So, in 2006, I took the plunge and obtained my PADI Open Water certification.  I immediately knew that with my love for training I wanted to continue on and become a PADI Dive Instructor.  Besides, what a perfect fit – my career passion (training) and my love for diving.  Now by night (and weekends), I enjoy sharing my passion of diving with my student divers!

Qualifications

PADI MSDT and EFR Instructor

Certified to teach the following specialty courses:  Altitude, Boat, Deep, Drift, Enriched Air, Multi-Level, Night, PPB, Project Aware, and Underwater Photography

Background:  I served over 10 years in the US Navy as a Chief Machinist Mate on board nuclear fast attack submarines.  My last duty   station was in Saratoga Springs, NY teaching people how to run and maintain a nuclear power plant and steam propulsion systems.   This is when I fell in love with training.  When I got out of the service I took a job at The Raymond Corporation and relocated to   Binghamton, NY.  In July of 2006, I decided to try a lifelong interest of scuba diving.  I was immediately hooked.  Since, then I have continued my dive education and earned my instructor certification in Glens Falls, NY. 

Mike's motivation - "a different world awaits you under the sea"
