Become a PADI Professional Scuba Diving Instructor with 5 specialities in just under 1 year.
We teach a combination of academic studies with lots of discussion and interaction along with regular practical experience. You will learn as you experience the wonder of scuba diving at our amazing New Zealand dive sites. We get you out of the classroom and into the water doing what you are passionate about.
You do not need any prior Scuba experience and we will take you from your Open Water Course through Advanced-Rescue-Divemaster-Instructor-Speciality Instructor. Diploma graduates complete NZQA unit standards in a variety of diving areas including Night, Underwater Navigation, Search, & Recovery, Deep, Marine Species Identification, Wreck.
The structure of study for the Diploma means we get you out there into the open sea and diving and you’ll have at least 100 dives under your belt when you complete your diploma along with friends and dive buddies you’ll have made for life.
Our Course Tutors are fully qualified PADI instructors.
