With the training to become a PADI diving instructor your dream will come true!

Experience is what makes us great

Dive Point Red Sea is a German PADI 5 Star Career Development Center in Hurghada, Egypt. In order to achieve this qualification, 5 Star IDC Centers have been successfully offering Instructor Education and Training for years.

This gives our candidates the certainty of starting with the best possible preparation to become PADI diving instructors. At the same time, we meet the strict standards and offer much more than just IDCs – the opportunity to develop skills and knowledge beyond pure teaching to be well prepared for the job as a PADI diving instructor.

We conduct up to seven IDCs per year in Hurghada! Since 1995 we offer professional PADI Instructor Training at the highest level. During this time, we have been able to congratulate more than 2400 PADI Instructors on their successful training. A result that speaks for itself…

Our dive center was designed and built by us especially for the special needs of instructor training and further education. The distance between our base and the Red Sea (with the training places for confined open water and open water) is 50 meters!

The theoretical part of the courses takes place in our two ideally equipped classrooms, of course all air-conditioned. These classrooms are equipped with TV, video, DVD, computers and video beamers. The training in confined open water takes place directly in the shallow part of our house reef. For the open water dives our house reef also offers perfect conditions.

The way to become a diving instructor

Since the beginning of 2011 the German PADI Instructor Training consists of three different parts:

Part 1 consists of the PADI Assistant Instructor course (duration with us: 4 days) and is primarily oriented to the courses that an PADI Assistant Instructor can train and teach the basics for teaching theory, confined water and open water skills.

Part 2, the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor Program (duration with us: 5 days), introduces all other courses and components of the PADI training system. The skills for teaching in the three areas mentioned above will be further trained and refined. Passing the OWSI program is one of the prerequisites for taking the Instructor Examination (IE). 

Part 3 is the Instructor Examination (IE) itself, which lasts 2 days and completes the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor training process, PADI’s first instructor level.
