At Paradise Divers, we say you arrive as a candidate but leave as a friend. You will be trained by our very own PADI Course Director in Tenerife and a passionate team who are dedicated to helping you become the best PADI Professional you can be. We are not here to teach you how to pass the exam, we are committed to giving you the best possible start to your diving career. 

During your training you will learn through a variety of experiences. Whether it’s through scenario workshops or working with “real” customers, you will leave as a qualified and confident PADI Professional. Yes, PADI Professional courses require your dedication, but we guarantee there will be some laughs along the way!
