PADI Pro Courses in the Philippines

Go Pro Philippines is the professional training arm of Dive Moalboal, we offer the complete range of PADI professional courses from PADI Divemaster, PADI Instructor Development Courses (IDC), through to IDC Staff Instructor. For all other PADI and TDI scuba diver training programs check here.

We are located within Nirvana Resort Moalboal, a beautiful native resort surrounded by green tropical jungle on the south-west of Cebu island in the Philippines. Nirvana has a wonderful laid back vibe, and is a short distance from some of the best dive sites in the world. Our dive center boasts first-class facilities and equipment with unparalleled service and professionalism. Our training is designed to prepare you for your chosen career and ensure you are able to deliver quality diver education, not simply pass tests, we sell training and education, not certifications.

Where you choose to learn is an important factor, for professional courses you will be here for an extended period and should aim to train in a place that you can enjoy. Moalboal is surrounded by lush green hills, plenty to explore there if you need a day off diving. The diving itself is among the best and easiest access on the planet, just 20 meters from the shoreline you will find yourself hovering over a 60-meter wall, with coral all the way up to 6 meters, this makes our dive sites accessible and interesting for beginners and pros alike.

The Philippines, located in the heart of the Coral Triangle, the global center of marine biodiversity is the perfect place to stage your dive training and enjoy a number of other activities such as FreeDiving, Snorkeling, Trekking, Hiking, and working on your tan. Be warned like all of us here, you may never wish to leave.

Pass Guarantee For IDC candidates. In the unlikely event you are unsuccessful on your first IE, or you are not ready, you will be invited back to our next IDC free of charge for any additional training needed until you are good to go. We do not expect to use this option, but it’s comforting to know we are as invested in your success as you are.
