PADI Pro Courses from Divemaster to Instructor and beyond

Go Pro with Ocean Turtle Diving

Welcome to our dedicated Pro section and congratulations on taking positive action towards making your dreams come true.

There is currently hugh global demand for well-trained PADI professionals and we can help you to land your dream job, in your dream location when you undertake your PADI Pro training with us.

We are able to offer the complete range of PADI Professional courses; Divemaster, Assistant Instructor, Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI), Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT), IDC Staff Instructor and over 25 Specialty Instructor courses such as Dry Suit, Deep, Wreck, Night, Full Face Mask, Adaptive and DSMB.

As a PADI Career Development Centre, Ocean Turtle Diving is able to offer unique opportunities to those wishing to pursue a career in diving. Unlike regular IDC centres, we can accept you onto an Instructor Development Course, certify you as an AI and put you forward for your Instructor Examination (IE) with just 60 dives. You will then gain the experience required with us, team-teaching and learning the ropes, to reach 100 dives and obtain your OWSI rating. This is a huge advantage if you are looking for a fast track career change to the life of your dreams!

What we do doesn’t make us stand out. How we do it, does.

We have a truly unique approach to all of our PADI Pro courses from Divemaster upwards. We have woven into the fabric of each course a fundamental business philosophy that will make you a better PADI Pro, who can make a living out of diving, not just a life. All of our courses teach you key business skills and attributes that will make you stand out in a crowd.

Over and above that we have a steadfast commitment to the protection of our Ocean Planet – we are a 100% Aware dive centre, donating thousands of pounds to Project Aware every year. We organise regular clean up events and Project Aware Specialties, and train all our PADI Pro to do their duty and pass on this philosophy to their future students.

We appreciate that you are making a considerable investment of time and money. We promise to help you to use the time as efficiently as possible and we offer a variety of options when it comes to schedules and full or part times courses.

We know you have a choice when it comes to choosing where you take your PADI Pro courses – and we really value you considering Ocean Turtle Diving in that process. We promise we will not let you down. We have a small and dedicated team of extremely supportive and professional staff, who will be on call for you, day or night, both during your learning journey and once your training with us has come to a close.

“Having been in the industry for a number of years now it’s hard not to know when you walk in to a well staffed and welcoming environment. Since the first time I set foot into ocean turtle diving I have always felt happy with the outcome of whatever the reason I went there for and just recently, I undertook my MSDT training with Kerrie and couldn’t fault her expertise, knowledge and enthusiasm for all things diving!”

Ian – Basingstoke

“I have just completed my PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course) with Ocean Turtle Diving and I couldn’t have had a better experience. I have always been a fairly shy person and the thought of teaching and presenting has always terrified me but Kerrie and her team with their unwavering support and patience have turned me around and I can’t wait to get out there and start teaching the world to dive!!”

Kev – Andover

“I recently undertook my OWSI course and the PADI Instructor Exam under the guidance of Kerrie, Anna and Edwin from Ocean Turtle Diving. They were superb – awesome course, fantastic instructors and a lot of fun too! And i passed!! I also saw how they interacted with other students and divers at a variety of levels and their professionalism and friendliness was a great example to me as a PADI pro. Very happy customer and they are highly recommended.”

Duff – Berkshire

“Just completed my IDC with Kerrie and team at Ocean Turtle Diving and I can’t praise them enough. Knowledgeable and highly capable, but with a strong sense of humour, along with compassion and never ending support. They were absolutely amazing!!”

Stuart – Kent

“From the minute I stepped into this dive centre to get a taste of what scuba diving was about, my questions and worries were calmed and my appetite for the sport thoroughly whetted. The teaching is so informative, thorough and enlightening, and the organisation, friendliness and general attitude of the staff is first class; they are incredibly helpful and will frequently go the extra mile to help their customers and students. I would highly recommend Ocean Turtle for all levels of diver (and big up diving in the UK!)”

Stephanie – Winchester

“HIGHLY RECOMMEND! When I first dived with ocean turtle, I was very new to diving. I didn’t know what to expect and was really anxious. The staff are so supportive and friendly which helped me feel more comfortable and I have now completed multiple courses with them including Divemaster. I wouldn’t recommend any dive centre more.”

Hannah – Hertfordshire

“I’m a Divemaster and I’ve signed up for an IDC next year. The instructors and divemasters have been amazing throughout all of the courses I have completed. Along with teaching they have provided help and support when I’ve needed it. This was key when I was going through my Divemaster training, I would have struggled without the support I received and still do (when needed) now I’ve qualified. It’s not just the instructing in which I think Ocean Turtle excel. They are incredibly friendly and happy to help regardless of whether I need new kit, advice on courses, enquiring about trips, or just a chat. Nothing is too much trouble. A great bunch of guys and gals.”
