Can I cross over to PADI easily..?

Yes and I understand you may already be a highly qualified Instructor with another agency thats great find out how easily I can adapt the PADI Instructor Course to suit your needs after all you have done a lot of the work already and well on your way...

It's possible to cross over at most levels between various training organisations and still receive credit for your previous training and experience. In particular, we get a lot of inquiries about transferring BSAC diver grades to PADI Professional grades from people who'd like to work abroad.

For information specific to your circumstances, please contact me. However as a rough guideline you can expect to cross over from:

BSAC Sports Diver - qualifies you to enroll on the PADI Divemaster course
BSAC Dive Leader - qualifies you to enroll on the PADI Assistant Instructor course or IDC program
BSAC Club Instructor or higher - qualifies you to enroll onto the Instructor Orientation Course, a variant on the IDC program tailored for instructors from other organisations.

All of these crossovers are subject to an individual assessment, of course. Please email with any inquires you have anything is possible.

Calendar shows where I will be and duration of my time there. If I am in your area and you want to join a course, contact me for locations. If you see any dates free and would like me to visit your dive centre or location, drop me an email with location, course interest and possible dates.
