In addition, we could teach in English throughout the course.

PADI Open Water Diver (OW)
PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (AOW)
PADI Rescue Diver(RD)
PADI Dive Master(DM
PADI Emergency First Response (EFR)

After obtaining the license, the first step in becoming a professional is to become a diving guide, accumulating practical experience and diving skills.

Diving is a risky leisure activity. Without solid training and enough time to hone the skills, it is difficult to implement safety management. Accumulate diving experience through actual work, understand the real work of diving guides and instructors, and create credibility that you are suitable for this job.

The training period includes 50 dives of training, most of which are boat dives mainly in the Kerama Islands and other expeditions excluding the number of self-dives on holidays.

During the training, you will learn basic diving skills, rescue skills, safety management, leadership, teamwork, and Japanese service spirit.
