Become a diving professional

Being a PADI instructor is real job satisfaction Go Pro with Happy Divers Marbella

Are you tired of your 9-5 job?
Make the beach your office!

Change from being a recreational diver into a scuba diving professional. 

We ensure that your Divemaster training and/ or your PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) at Happy Divers in Marbella, Spain gives you more than just a divemaster or an instructor certification. We focus on helping you to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence you will need to use in your daily life during your career as an instructor.

Learning to teach diving is a bit like learning to drive a car. Once you have passed your driving test it does not necessarily mean that you have the skills, experience and confidence to be a good driver. It's the same with diving. Our professional diver training and especially our IDC is more than just a way to get your instructor certification!
