In conjunction with one of South Africa’s leading course directors and his 5 Star Instructor Development Centre, ScubaCo is proud to offer our Career Development Programme. This programme is the ideal way to utilise a gap year and where a useable qualification is gained in a short space of time. With a classroom facility, full retail store and compressor facility we are able to offer a comprehensive learning experience to all our students.
The programmes have been structured in such a way that you can get onto the programme you want at any time and courses already completed will be credited on the programme. You will therefore only be charged a pro rata for the courses you still need to do to complete the chosen programme.
Our programmes are aligned to the pre-set dates for the Instructor Examination weekends as set by PADI international but we do whatever we can to accommodate your specific needs and timing.
Please give any of our Diving Professionals to discuss the next step in the process or for a formal quotation on the Career Development Programmes we offer.
