The availability of PADI training depends on the availability of our PADI qualified instructors. There is an additional fee payable for PADI courses, although putting this in perspective: the cost of club membership plus the PADI course fee is usually similar to the amount you'd expect to pay to do the same course with a dive shop / dive school - the difference is that you'd be a full member of the club with lots of potential buddies to socialise and dive with, and club assets to benefit from.
