Zero to Hero PADI Dive Course Packages
Beginner to Divemaster training packages
Zero to Hero
The term is often used to describe intensive training packages that take complete beginners and train them to divemaster or instructor. We are not a big fan of it, often centers advertising these packages tend to rush training and provide the course content without the necessary amount of diving experience and application between each level.
Our approach is to package training modules (such as the open water course, advanced open water course and others) along with access to non-training dives, and assisting our staff in daily diving activities, providing opportunity for hands on experience and real life application. We believe this is where the learning process is cemented in place.
The term is often misused in the diving industry; most who advertise internships are not offering free training, but instead are selling the courses. There are some who offer training in exchange for work, in our experience this rarely satisfies either parties involved, and the quality of training is impaired due to the work commitments. The work you would be asked to do is typically far from glamorous, you cannot work as a divemaster until qualified, you cannot be qualified until you have done enough work (think mop, bucket and toilet floor).
How we work
What we offer are professionally run courses, combined with the right amount of diving experience and diver interaction. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts on the road to becoming a professional diver. Keep a distance from anyone who tells you otherwise, they are either misleading you, or worse, do not know what it means to be a good dive professional themselves.
Who you will train with
We do things a little differently to most, instead of being assigned to one instructor you will work with two, at least one of those will be an Instructor Development Course (IDC) Staff Instructor (or higher), this means you will be thoroughly prepared for the next step, the PADI IDC, and work with highly trained, and very experienced instructors.
On our full time staff, we have Course Directors, Instructor Trainers and Master Instructors, rarely do you find so much knowledge and experience under one roof, during your training you will have a chance to work with them all.
What it costs
No confusing or misleading deals here, it’s very simple, if you book any other courses with your Divemaster course we will discount those programs by 10% from our advertised rates.
If you need accommodation we can provide a bed in a 2 person fan dorm for 2500 PHP per week, contact us for what is available.
