PADI Pro Workshops

PADI Europe, Middle East and Africa is launching an exciting series of practical workshops, offering  you the opportunity to take part in a variety of interactive practical sessions, meet PADI staff and network amongst your peers.

We have a selection of different experiences for you during the course of the day, so bring your dive gear, and join our experienced examiner team for a Control Techniques Workshop, where you’ll take away some hints and tips from the staff on how to conduct some of the classic and updated skills, with an emphasis on real-world best practices for control in open water. You can also refresh your rescue skills in the fun and interactive Rescue Workshop, and make sure you’re up to speed with the latest rescue protocols. And if you’re a Course Director or IDC Staff Instructor, you’re also invited to take part in an Evaluation Training Workshop, where we’ll practice evaluating some of the skills from the recently revised Open Water Diver Course (as a bonus you can attend any of these workshops free of charge if you also just came along to the corresponding IDC Staff Instructor / Course Director Update!).

When you’ve dried off, or even if you aren’t able to attend the in-water sessions, you can also attend the complimentary Risk Management Seminar, pick up some tips on conducting the Revised Open Water Diver Course, and take advantage of a Training Drop-In Clinic to ask the Training team any questions you have about PADI programmes or materials. In some locations, these programmes will also be combined with a Member Forum hosted by your PADI Regional Manager!

You can find the latest schedule of workshop dates and download a registration form here.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
