Dive Courses

Whether you start with your Padi Divemaster Internship, a Padi Instructor Internship or only one diving course, it is important to know what you would like in diving, why and with whom. Check the dive centers equipment, see the classrooms, meet the dive staff, even online this is something you can do. This way you can ensure you are at the right diving place. This is most important for your fun, diving adventure and dive safety.

What is in it for you? Why choose PADI?

PADI is the biggest and most organized diving training agency. PADI is International, so you can work anywhere in the world. PADI’s training standards are considered to be THE safety standard in the world. Most people that would like to learn to dive come inside diving centers and simply ask to do their PADI. If you have any questions you can call the PADI Offices, the people there are friendly, helpful and know all there is about diving. PADI goes out of its way to protect you (by developing standards and by providing insurances).

So when you become a PADI Professional, you will have the tools (PADI Educational Materials), the knowledge (solid PADI Training), the support (PADI Offices around the world) and the benefits (PADI Magazines, updates, seminars and the PADI Certification Card) to be a better Instructor, with more job possibilities all around the world !!

 

What is the difference? Is it difficult?

Difficult ? No. You will require to prepare yourself before a training by self study. But during our Professional Courses we will show you how easy it is when you use the PADI Educational Materials (DVD’s, CD-ROM’s, manuals, etc). This way life is easy, you follow the program and get students enthusiastic and make sure you check if they master their skills. More about this in the Divemaster and IDC Program.Let’s make your life clear and easy, so there is plenty of time to have FUN while diving and teaching !

For courses until Padi Divemaster

If you have a certification card of another diving agency, you don’t have to learn the same level again. If you have missed some necessary steps in the process or it was a long time ago, we might have you do a 1 day Scuba Review. After this you are ready to proceed to the next level !!! Even for the Padi Divemaster Course, you can start with this course if you have a certification card, which is the equivalent of the PADI Rescue Course , with proof of 40 logged dives, proof of deep diving (under instruction) and a card for CPR and First Aid.

For Padi Assistant Instructors and Padi Instructors Levels

If you would like to become a PADI Instructor and you are already an Instructor with another diving training agency, we will have to teach you about PADI. This basically means you will have to do the full Padi IDC Course. We will give you a discount for being an Instructor already though (have a look at the IDC Packages and Prices). During the Padi IDC Course you will learn all there is to learn about PADI, the way PADI Professionals teach diving, how to use the PADI Educational Materials and improve on your (teaching) skills. 

It’s a once in a life time experience and a lot of FUN !
