Based in Dibba, Musandam, Nomad is easy to get to via a flight to Dubai and then a relatively short land transfer.  Once in place you will have everything at your disposition to prepare for your Instructor Examination (IE) in the best conditions, including a great climate, on site swimming pool, accommodation and all meals included in the package price.


Once the stress is over and you have passed your IE we will return to Nomad for Specialty Instructor training when you will have time to appreciate some of the truly excellent local diving , and optimise your chances of clinching that dream first job in the industry as quickly as possible.
