Just a double check!!

I have had a price back for PADI diving course of AED2300 including the e-learning part to become qualified open water diver

That sound reasonable?? Or are there better schools offering better value?

2300 with the eLearning is a bit much in comparison to others.

AED1500 plus the eLearning would be around AED1900.

Can I ask which dive centre has quoted the AED2300

PDC?

I thought the price there was AED1500 plus the eLearning. If you want, I can contact either one of the course directors there or one of the other staff to double check for you. I should be working there later this year as an independant instructor, but I will speak to then if you want.

Does that include all the dives? If so, I think that's an OK value

Yeah in pool and open water dives as well + theory and exam - but why pay 2300 AED when you can pay 1500 AED road the road....

its more expensive because its a 5* hotel..

Not necessarily. There are other factors to consider as well......the standard of the school, instructors, courses offered etc.

PDC is the only CDC (Career Development Centre) in the UAE which is the highest dive centre rating available from Padi. Al Boom is a 5 Star IDC.

Thanks guys, always useful. The instructor at Jumeriah is an independant and it includes pool and open water dives and all equipment etc so it is an all inclusive cost for everything required.
