Change of Lifestyle

Students on boardA career in diving can break you out of a nine-to-five rut, or open the door to adventurous part-time or full-time possibilities. Like many careers, PADI dive professionals are envied for the lifestyles they lead. Divemasters schedule and plan dives on yachts, as do Instructors, who also get to teach. Instructor Trainers travel to the world’s most exotic locations, while PADI employees are the eyes and ears of the dive industry. What do all these people share? They are all diverse individuals who love their jobs. There are endless possibilities and paths are available to take advantage of through PADI, it only takes desire to make it happen. Why not get paid for something that you love to do anyway? With Instructor Koh Tao and Ban’s Diving we can help you make this happen.

As a PADI Member, you are a part of the most successful company in the diving instructor industry. There are more than 6300 (and growing) PADI Dive Centers and Resorts around the world, and an overwhelming majority of dive operations are PADI Members. At any given time, there are more positions available for PADI leaders than there are dive professionals to fill them. The bottom line is that whatever dive career path you choose, your PADI credentials will get you where you want to go, faster and easier.

The Change of Lifestyle Package takes you from a non-diver to a very experience diving instructor. There is no better way to start your diving career then being C.O.L.

We learned a lot about Dive Theory and Practice on a very professional Level with main focus on how to teach and conduct Dive Courses on our own.
