Everyone has a dream, right? For those with a passion in scuba diving and dreaming of a career in the dive industry, Buddy Dive Academy is the place to be. In 2017 Buddy Dive Academy offers the opportunity to follow the Instructor Development Course (IDC) on both Bonaire and Dominica. The two present perfect spots in the Caribbean to become a PADI instructor.

Only PADI CDC in the southern Caribbean

Whether the student chooses to become a PADI professional on Bonaire, shore diving capital of the world, or on the nature island of Dominica, they are sure to join one of the best PADI professional dive training facilities worldwide. Buddy Dive Academy is proud to be the only PADI Career Development Center (CDC) in the southern Caribbean. “Our students dream of teaching new divers becomes reality with us”, says Pepe Mastropaolo, PADI Course Director at Buddy Dive Academy. “We train our candidates to the highest level of standards and guarantee a 100% passing rate in the PADI Instructor Examination (IE).”

High level of professionalism

Mastropaolo will fly into Dominica to guide the candidates during their course, to guarantee the high level of professionalism everyone is used to have in Bonaire. “We would like to give the residents of Dominica and surrounding islands the opportunity to become a PADI instructor”, he explains. “As a CDC we also give them a hand in the search of a job placement in Bonaire, Dominica or other surrounding islands in the Caribbean.” The on-site accommodation on both Bonaire and Dominica is very convenient for the candidates; easy access to the dive operation, pool and ocean and at the same time they can experience the atmosphere of a dive operation, their possible future work environment.
