Chalfont Divers by Matt Piserchio
Hello, I'm Matt Piserchio. I'm a Pharmaceutical Scientist by career and a Professional Dive Instructor by passion. I'm also a local hero in the neighborhood, because I have a pool! Having been fascinated by the sea since I was a child, I was certified as a PADI Scuba Instructor in 1992. While Scuba instruction is just a hobby I also have a passion for teaching and mentoring and take a very patient and understanding approach. I always tell my new students that I will teach them all of the skills that they need to be a safe diver but I also want to be sure that they enjoy the class, have fun and meet some new friends and potential dive buddies.

I was initially certified in central Pennsylvania and conducted my certifications in the Susquehanna River in Lock Haven, PA. In 1998, I moved to Chalfont, PA and immediately began searching for a new Instructor role in a local dive shop. I quickly became the Chief Instructor for F.F. Divers in Sellersville, PA. Our pool sessions were conducted at Penn Ridge High School in Perkasie, PA as well as the Lenape Valley Swim Club in Chalfont. Unfortunately, F.F. Divers’ physical store closed in 2012. Since that time, I have been conducting classes in my own pool in Chalfont, PA with small, personalized classes. My focus is on friendly, fun and safe instruction. But if you have at least a 7 foot deep-end in your own pool, I can also train at your home if within approximately 15 miles of the Chalfont, Doylestown, Lansdale, or Horsham areas.
