Professional Training

There are many reasons to become a PADI® Divemaster or SCUBA Instructor. You can work and travel, share your love of the underwater world with others, or simply for a personal challenge. Along the way, you’ll hone your SCUBA diving skills and emerge as a leader in the world’s largest community of divers bound together by a shared passion for adventure and ocean conservation.

Email us at scuba@cpp.edu whenever you are ready to begin your journey in professional diving. We will arrange a one-on-one meeting with you and the ASI SCUBA Dive Center Coordinator to discuss course requirements and schedule.

PADI Dive Master Course

Be a leader who mentors and motivates others. Gain diving knowledge, supervision abilities, and become a role model to divers around the world.

Working closely with a PADI Instructor, you’ll fine-tune your dive skills in this first level of professional training. As a PADI Divemaster, you’ll learn how to lead others as you supervise SCUBA diving activities and assist with diver training. Whether you want to work at a faraway dive destination, or close to home at a local dive shop, the adventure of a lifetime awaits you.

PADI Instructor Development Course

If you like people, have a passion for SCUBA diving and want an extraordinary life, become a PADI Instructor. Teaching scuba diving allows you to share your love of the aquatic world with others while doing what you enjoy – being in, around, and under water. PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors are one of the most sought-after dive professionals around the world because they have completed the program that sets the standard for training dive professionals. You earn a PADI Instructor rating through hard work and commitment, but you are rewarded with a job that lets you share incredible underwater adventures with others, transforming their lives for the better while also enriching yours.

PADI Emergency First Response (EFR) Instructor

First Response Instructor, you teach skills based on internationally recognized emergency care guidelines and can offer courses to anyone. The great thing about EFR courses is they make learning easy by providing a comfortable environment to practice emergency care skills. Your students finish the course feeling confident with their new skills and ready to help someone in need.

You must be at least 18 years old and have had Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months.
