PADI Courses Offered by Dream Divers

Whatever the reason you want to learn to scuba dive, the range of different PADI scuba diving courses offer both new and experienced divers alike, diving theory lessons together with practical skills based scuba lessons, which will help you gain the necessary skills to become a safe and confident diver.

As part of the Dream Divers philosophy, all our PADI courses will be taught in small groups to ensure a very high student to staff ratio. We want to give all our students not just the chance to learn the skills, but to fully practice them in a safe and well supervised environment until they become second nature, therefore helping all our divers become safe and respected members of the dive community.

All classroom theory sessions can be arranged at a time to suit the student; these are carried out in our classroom facilities at the dive centre.

Class Room Training Sessions

All our classroom training sessions are held in our purpose built classroom training area, giving you the best environment in which to successfully learn the theory section of your current PADI course. We realise that everyone learns differently and at different rates, so we have a comfortable hospitality area where students can relax, with a cup of coffee between sessions or watch any of the training materials covered in the course DVD.

All classroom based theory lessons can be arranged at a time to suit individual students, fitting in around your work and other commitments.
