Why become a PADI Professional

Open doors you have only imagined.  As a PADI Professional, you do things others only see in their dreams.  Whether you work at a local dive center, at a resort, or on a live-aboard dive boat, the adventure of a lifetime is yours for the taking.

Imagine a job where you actually look forward to heading off to work in the morning.  Sailing into incredible sunsets could be the rule, not the exception, especially if you work in a tropical dive destination.  The commute to work could be as easy as a ten-minute boat ride and work becomes an adventure in itself.  If you set your sights closer to home and aspire to work at a local dive center, you teach people how to dive and guide trips to exotic dive destinations.  There’s a sense of pride sharing something you are passionate about.  You help others enrich their lives by experiencing the adventure of diving.

Worldwide, more people learn to dive using the PADI System of diver education than with any other recreational scuba program.  The PADI system allows divers to progress at their own pace and encourages them to take continuing education programs that enhance their participation, enjoyment and safety.  As a PADI Pro, you are one of the most sought-after dive professionals on the planet.  PADI Instructors and the PADI System of diver education are the benchmarks against which all other instructors and certification organizations are measured.
