Want to live the dream and become a PADI Instructor?

We get many queries from people who want to become scuba instructors. Many of them already have
some formal scuba dive training. The chart below shows you how much it will cost to become a qualified
PADI scuba instructor depending on the level of certification you already have.

The more courses you have already done the cheaper it is to become an instructor.
For example, if you have already completed your Open Water Advanced course, you will only need to do all
the courses including the Emergency first response course. To become an instructor will therefore cost you R33 000.

Use the chart below to see how you can become an instructor with our Go Pro Courses!
