Divemaster Tenerife Best Centre

Officially the Number #1 Instructor Development Centre – IDC

The world leaders in training Divemasters and PADI Instructors and beyond……..

 

We have been based in Tenerife, Canary Islands, for more than 15 years and in that time have built up the most successful Dive Center in the region. This is based on actual statistics provided by PADI, not wishful thinking.

 

According to PADI statistics for the last 8 years we have trained more PADI Instructors, PADI Divemasters and issued more recreational scuba certifications than any other Dive Centre in the region.

 

After reaching the successful milestone of becoming a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre we then progressed to PADI Instructor Development Centre (IDC) and then being awarded the highest accolade from PADI of the PADI Career Development Centre. 

 

For 2023 we now have affiliated with SSI as their digital products and training philosophy is more suited to our higher level of professional training.

“Every morning you have two choices:

Continue to sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase your dreams. The choice is yours.”

Next Scuba Instructor course starts in

You have choices.... let us tell you more.....

When it comes to choosing where to do your Divemaster internship, or Scuba Instructor training course, we understand that there are many options available in Europe, and around the world, and we believe we have the best.

We are a training Academy, to our knowledge the only one in Europe, that means we are dedicated to training you and getting you into work.

Don’t confuse our Training Academy with a Dive Centre that also does occasional Pro courses!

We train more  Scuba Professionals than any other Dive Centre in the region, so you will be in good company.

We have assembled a team who are all experts, not only in Divemaster and Scuba Instructor courses, but the complete range of recreational diving courses.

The history of our Dive Centre and Training Academy for diving professionals....

In 2008 we started our first PADI Dive Centre in Tenerife.
The PADI Divemaster and PADI Instructor courses grew in popularity until we decided to move to a dedicated Training Academy for PADI Pros in 2016.

Our new location was a much larger Dive Centre, located right next to the best dive site in Tenerife.

In 2020 we became the first PADI Career Development Centre in Tenerife and the only active PADI CDC Centre in the Canary Islands. This is the highest level of PADI Dive Centre in the world.

During 2022 we made the decision to join forces with SSI. The digital products on offer and training philosophy was more advanced and a better synergy for our company.  This combined with more affordable renewal and processing fee’s, for our professionals, made it an easy decision. 

Discover what is unique for our Dive Guides, Divemasters and Scuba Instructors....

We have radically changed how Dive Centres traditionally run a diving internship and have produced an awesome program balancing diving study, lots of diving and social entertainment, all set in the great surroundings of Tenerife and the warm Atlantic Ocean.

Unlike traditional scuba diving “internships” we do not make use of interns as a form of slave labour, but teach you to be a great diving professional with excellent customer service skills and also give you time to make friends and enjoy yourself.

After many years in the diving industry we have changed what is considered “normal” and taken feedback from 1,000s of interns across the world to produce our dedicated training Academy.

And for good measure we have dedicated Master Scuba Diver programs for those interested in marine conservation and specialised Pro MSD.
Nobody offers you more.

Marine conservation programs.....

We proudly support environmental projects globally as well as locally within Tenerife and we will assist you in learning all about the world underwater and the issues it is facing.

Anyone who has an interest in diving, marine biology, aquatic conservation or starting a new scuba diving career will feel at home on our either our Divemaster internships or Instructor programs.

We have our own Master Scuba Diver program dedicated to Ocean Awareness which can be presented in conjunction with your Divemaster or Instructor program or independently.

Meet the most diverse group of trainee Scuba Pros in the region....

We have had students from all around Europe and the rest of the world, check our “World of interns map” and you will discover over 50 nationalities that have succeeded with one of our Divemaster internships or Instructor courses. During your internship you will have time to explore the island, discover inner strengths you never knew you had and meet new people who will become lifelong friends.

Wanting to experience the adventure of a lifetime....

So if you are looking for an adventure or experience for your summer break, taking a Gap Year, looking for a complete change of career or even wanting to gain huge amounts of diving knowledge and improving your diving skills, then is this is the place for you.

Dive Guide, Divemaster, Scuba Instructor and beyond......

Our Scuba Career Development Dive Centre offers Dive Guide, Divemaster internships, PADI Assistant Instructor internships, Scuba Instructor internships and Assistant Instructor Trainer programs. 

Looking for a certification, or a career, you have found the right Dive Centre....

There are many reasons to choose a dive centre to complete your Pro Scuba  training with; a nice Instructor, great underwater pictures, the website is in many languages, it’s a short distance from the local bar, or perhaps the most important for those looking to make a career in diving is, can you get me a job!?

Lets look past all of the promises by various DC’s and look at cold hard facts.

PADI do not “hand out” CDC awards to many DC’s, why? Because not many are in a position to continue the assistance beyond the training. That is where we excel. We WILL get you that job.

Having trained 1,000’s of PADI Pros, we have a huge network around the world of people who know our “standards” and want to employ YOU.

Since our decision to move to SSI the opportunities  have grown exponentially. 
We are now in a position to offer work placements to EVERY successful Divemaster or Instructor we train, in a Dive Centre somewhere around the world that suits YOU. 

Don’t leave the biggest decision of where to do a Divemaster or Instructor to chance, join the best, become a Scuba Pro with us.

Dive safe, Travel safe, stay safe....

In 2020 when the worldwide pandemic hit, 10,000s were left stranded and struggling to get home.

With 100’s of flights from all the budget airlines and British Airways, be safe in the knowledge you are only a few hours from mainland Europe and able to get home, should the need arise.
