PADI Instructor Examination


PADI Instructor Examination (IE) 


Happy Divers Marbella & IDC College, apart from being a PADI 5* instructor training facility is also one of the few locations in Spain where PADI EMEA is conducting the Instructor Examinations (IE). Your benefit is that you will do your instructor exam at the same location where you do your instructor training. This saves travel time and expenses.


The PADI IE is held over two days at Happy Divers Marbella & IDC College`s facilities, directly following the IDC. The IE is conducted by PADI Headquarters Examiners - it is not run by, and has no affiliation, with Happy Divers Marbella & IDC College. On successful completion of the IE, candidates receive the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor rating directly from PADI EMEA.

As a dive center we are not directly involved in the IE. Therefore the IE fee has to be paid directly to PADI Europe. We only provide the logistics for the IE. In exception we can accept bookings for the IE, which we will pass on to PADI EMEA.
