PADI Instructor Specialty Fee's

Each time you certify in a given PADI instructor Specialty, you will pay PADI a one time processing fee, of 98$. This fee is non-negotiable if you wish to teach that specialty as a PADI instructor. This fee will be charged upon completion of the specialty training, usually this happens after you have graduated as an instructor and begun your specialty training to become a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT).

When Getting Quotes Please Make Sure That The "Total Price" is the Final Amount you Pay

Let's be clear, becoming a PADI scuba diving instructor costs money, you need to pay for your training over the course of your IDC, you need to pay PADI to register as an instructor and there are materials such as the PADI Crew Pack that you are 100% required to have to even begin your IDC training. Some dive center's will not tell you about this until you arrive. It is their way of making an IDC look cheaper than it really is. Please check the final price before signing up with any dive centre. This is to include course tuition, accommodation, boat fees, PADI Fees, IE Fees and the like.

We have awesome and varied post graduation programs, ranging from 'Ride Alongs' with our elite instructors to instructor internships where experience & responsibility can be had in real world environments with real customers, getting you the qualifications & certifications you need to be attractive to employers.

The absolute best way to ensure employability after you graduate to a fully fledged (OWSI) Open Water Scuba Diving Instructor is to continue your training with PADI, especially when it comes to the PADI instructor specialties we teach here at Aussie Divers. Once you have five Instructor specialties under your belt you will become an M.S.D.T or Master Scuba Diver Trainer, which looks much better on your diving resume'.

I did my PADI Divemaster course with Ashley Walker in Queensland in 2013. Ash mentioned he was having a great time working in Thailand with Aussie Divers. Ash convinced me to head to Phuket and to do my PADI Instructor Development Course with Aussie Divers Phuket. Darren and the team really made the course a couple of weeks to remember. Ash recommended that I do PADI IDC online and I am glad that I did. It freed me up to work on other parts of the course and even let me have a days break in the second week which I really needed. The support I got through the IDC not only from Darren and Ash but from the whole team was unbelievable. [...]

I also made many friends amongst the Aussie Divers team who made me feel like one of the [...]
