Beginner to PADI 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.
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
In charge of our Zero to Hero packages are our PADI Master Instructors. They will do most of your training personally. This means you will be thoroughly prepared for the next step if you want to, the PADI IDC.
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 just let us know when you come and we look for a room or house with a monthly rental for you.
