Whether you have never dived before or have done a little and decided you'd like to become a PADI Dive professional (Sounds cool right??) This is the programme for you.
We split this program into 2 parts and depending on your experience you can start at various different points!
Includes the following PADI Courses:
Open Water Diver – The first dive course teaching you the basic skills required to dive safely down to a maximum depth of 18 meters.
Advanced Open Water – Follows on the fundamentals set in the Open Water course and helps develop key skills such as buoyancy, photography and navigation down to a depth of 30 meters.
Rescue Diver and Emergency First Responder - A great and challenging course that teaches candidates how to deliver first aid and help out with any dive emergencies.
Part 1 includes up to 40 Dives allowing you to feel comfortable in the water and get the opportunity to explore the great underwater world that we have here in Okinawa!
Is the PADI Divemaster course it self and involves various training exercises and theory development up to a professional level.
Once you've completed all the above courses you have finished your Divemaster course and we could shake hands and say our sad goodbyes BUT we want to give you more than that!
Why do it with us? The Extras
We will make you more employable by including both the Enriched Air Nitrox and the Deep Diver course as part of this package, allowing you to take suitably qualified divers down to 40 meters and spend longer down there than other divemasters could making you much more desirable to employers and allowing you to see a lot more awesome dive sites around the world!
Most Divemaster courses are carried out by just one Instructor but not here! We realise that everyone is different so instead of just one instructor you will be trained and work with all of the instructors here allowing you to see the differences between them and to develop your own style that you are most happy and comfortable with. As well as that our instructors are experienced in diving and teaching around the world and can give you the advice necessary for your chosen routes and destination.
We don't just want to tick boxes with you, we want you to be happy and comfortable at each stage and will happily take longer and repeat programmes if necessary to get you to this level.
You will qualify for special staff discounts with us on any further fun diving or training courses you wish to do as well as deals on buying your own dive gear which is a key to being a successful dive professional.
At the end of the course you can choose to stay for up to 4 weeks to gain some work experience under the watchful eyes of our instructor to improve your confidence and experience base to draw on for future guiding.
Finally, if you do well and enjoy your time in Okinawa, why not stay or come back and work for us?? Join us on a Working Holiday Visa and you can get paid to show people shipwrecks and taking them round beautiful coral reefs is why you signed up in the first place right? So as long as both sides want to then you can do it with us here and make all of your friends jealous!
