Instructor Training

Go Pro with Ocean Turtle Diving

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

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!”

“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!!”
