About the Career Development Course (CDC)

The Career Development Course is a flexible programme which allows candidates to leave between Phases and rejoin with the next intake. The programme can also be approached as a whole or customised to suit the candidate’s requirements.

Total Immersion

We produce experienced instructors who have a complete understanding of the industry.
Not only do you get your PADI certifications, we’ll also guide you through areas including Dive Centre operations, equipment maintenance and repair, operation and maintenance of dive boats and compressors (Air & Nitrox), emergency management, oxygen provision and marine injuries. Not every aspect is wrapped up in a course but as we are a PADI 5 Star IDC Resort it all happens here, if you want to be involved then it’s available. The more time you put into the program the more you learn.

Location, Location, Location!

Based at South Africa’s biggest and busiest Dive Resort the CDC takes you to the epicentre of the industry. We dive 364 days a year and train more students than anyone else in the country there is no better location to develop your Dive Career!

The Dive Resort is located in a National Park butting on to a Marine Reserve. The diving at Sodwana Bay is truly world class. The warm waters of the Indian Ocean provide the perfect setting for sightings which include Sharks(Whale, Ragged-Tooth, Black and White Tips),
Rays (Manta, Devil and Eagle), Turtles, Dolphins, Marlin and even the opportunity to meet a Whale on scuba! With unlimited diving you’ll probably get the chance to encounter most of these amazing creatures, as candidates usually log 400+ dives in the year.
