PADI Instructor Esther receives her certificate: Another success story from a Simply Diving Go PRO Spain IDC

It was time for scuba-style celebration in Malaga this week, after the Costa del Sol’s busiest and best PADI Instructor Development Dive Centre was awarded the diving industry’s highest possible rating.

Simply Diving Spain’s new title of PADI 5 Star Career Development Centre is recognition of both the volume and value of its Professional-level training, in particular its Instructor Development Courses (IDCs) for budding PADI Instructors.

The new rating – a step up from PADI 5 Star IDC Centre – is a first in Spain for a British-run dive centre and makes them just one of three CDCs in the entire country.

The strict criteria include having top facilities and the most-experienced staff to cater for both the novice diver and those looking to make diving a way of life with a career training programme.

Simply Diving Spain Manager and PADI Course Director Simon Bell said he was over the moon with the news. “This is a milestone in the life of our dive centre. It’s great to be recognised by PADI for all the effort we’re putting in to offering the best possible IDCs to our Instructor candidates.

Simply Diving Go PRO Spain’s new badge of honour

Now we’ll be able to offer our future PADI Instructors even more support as they make their first steps in their new career.

Of the professional-level training on offer at Go PRO Spain, Simply Diving’s Instructor Training Academy, are the full range of PADI Instructor Specialty courses including the most popular Deep Diver, Wreck Diver and Enriched Air Diver ratings.

This enables Simply Diving to take its candidates to the level of PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor and way beyond.

PADI Spain Regional Manager David Perea said: Congratulations to Simply Diving for your hard work and commitment to training new PADI Instructors. We wish you the best of luck with all your future IDCs.
