advanced-diving-dahab

1 Week Advanced Dive Adventure

PADI Speciality Courses

Already an Advanced Diver but still want to learn something new? Do a PADI Speciality!

These 1-2 day courses focus on a specific kind of diving that interests you. Nitrox diving, for example, or night diving, deep diving to 40m, underwater photography, reef conservation and more.

RESCUE AND PROFESSIONAL COURSES

Up until now, you’ve been learning about and improving your own diving, and having a great time exploring the underwater world. These next courses take you to a new level and change the way you think about diving.

efr-course-dahab

Emergency First Response

EFR is 1 day basic first aid training and it’s excellent preparation for your Rescue Diver course. Whereas Rescue Diver concentrates on diving and the aquatic environment, EFR is day-to-day first aid. It gives you the knowledge and confidence to respond to every day medical emergencies with family, friends, neighbours and colleagues.

rescue-course-dahab

Rescue Diver course

Rescue Diver is all about how to prevent and if necessary manage diving accidents.

You’ll learn to think more about the diving environment and others around you. You’ll recognise potential problems and ways to prevent them, and you’ll practice rescue scenarios. Many divers say this is the best course they’ve ever taken.

efr-rescue-diver-course-dahab

EFR And Rescue Week

This 1 week package pulls everything together: your EFR and Rescue Diver courses, accommodation, transfers and even a bit of fun diving on the side!

Hopefully you will never have to put your rescue skills into practice, but if you do, it will be a week well spent!

dive-master-dahab-DSCN4387

PADI Divemaster course

Love scuba diving? Ready for a whole new way to work, travel and live? Then it’s time to go pro and do your PADI Divemaster!

Your PADI Divemaster course takes 3-6 weeks, depending on your experience to date. You’ll fine-tune your diving and rescue skills, learn to guide certified divers, assist with PADI courses and become a role model to divers everywhere!

divemaster-internship-dahab

Divemaster Internship

Learn how a dive centre works from the inside-out!

If you have 3+ months, a Divemaster internship is an excellent way to enter the world of professional diving. In addition to doing your PADI Divemaster course, you’ll work on the dive counter, assist guides and instructors and learn a huge amount about how a sustainable dive centre is organised and run. And of course you will have an absolutely amazing working holiday!
