How much does it cost to get certified as a PADI scuba diving instructor?

Asked by pixiequeen12 (137points) June 2nd, 2008

And once you’re certified, do they help in placing you at a resort that needs an instructor? Has anybody ever done this as a way of adding a little spice/adventure to life?

And depending on how many courses you want to take, it will range from 125$ a day, to 350$ per day.
