Want to go pro? Our professional training
gives you top-notch training combined with unmatched flexibility,
allowing you to tailor your training to meet your needs.
We offer the following professional certifications, ranging from Divemaster to Instructor:
PADI Divemaster (DM)
DM course itself consists of:
- 7 theory modules
- 1 day of waterskills assessment and a first cut at a skill
- 1 day of stress testing and a second skill circuit
- 2-3 days of assisting in classrooms
- 2-3 days of leading dives
The above are the bare minimum requirements to be a Divemaster
- we generally recommend going beyond these minimum requirements.
Nothing beats experience when it comes to being a Divemaster,
and our DM Internship program is designed to provide that
experience: in this program, you would work as a DM, leading
dives, assisting with classes and conducting tune-ups. We'd
also go over regulator maintenance, how to fill tanks, eq
repair and so on - skills that are not taught in the formal
DM program but which are invaluable in the real world.
Rather than teaching you one way to do things, we encourage
you to work with all of our instructors - each of whom has
a unique style of operating. Pick out what works for you and
what doesn't work for you, and from there, develop your own
You also need to have 60 logged dives by the end of the program
- our DM Internship Program includes all the diving needed
to get to this level.
PADI Assistant Instructor:
The PADI Assistant Instructor program is a very useful step for people looking to become instructors. Typically, most pros go straight from DM to Instructor - and then are suddenly faced with the task of trying to teach Open Water courses right off the bat (which is a very significant transition).
The Assistant Instructor program provides a graded transition from being a Divemaster and handling certified divers to starting to teach. It is also a good time for candidates to brush up on their own skills and dive theory prior to taking an instructor course, but in a more relaxed setting (as opposed to a 2-week Instructor Development Course).
Become one of the most highly-sought after dive professionals in the world with our PADI Instructor program. Run 2-3 times each year, we offer a thorough training program led by very highly experienced Course Directors and Instructor Trainers, and pride ourselves on preparing highly-qualified instructors who are a credit to the industry.
In keeping with our dive philosophy, we don't run large,
high-volume courses. There really is no effective cookie-cutter
way to teach everyone how to become a dive professional -
and so we tailor our courses to meet the needs of each diver.
Becoming a professional means that you are responsible for
other people's safety - we take this very seriously and work
very hard to ensure that our dive professionals are indeed
capable of handling that responsibility.
