For those with a language barrier, developing their PADI professional diver training is more challenging, but PADI standards appreciate this and candidates will be administered an oral exam.

Aroldo’s first language isn’t English, as a matter of fact English is his 3rd language after Italian and Portugese! This is not a learning disability, however in the case that the language is not the candidate’s first spoken language they may opt to complete an oral exam.

Before even starting the 1-month PADI Divemaster Go PRO internship program, Aroldo was already consulted by our experienced Go PRO advisors on what his options were to successfully complete his training.

E-learning and dive theory study in certain languages is an option available to candidates, as well as the final examination questions too.

A learning disability doesn’t damage the chances of a diver to Go PRO either – if anything it would inspire future divers to continue their diver education themselves, knowing their PADI Instructor succeeded!

Participants on our Expedition Borneo program usually do not have English as their first language, but their zeal to qualify as PADI Open Water Diver finds them success!

For more information on internship programs at our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre, contact our Go PRO advisors.
