Prodive College is one of the worst dive schools in mexico.  I attended Prodive College and learned of all the negative past experiences of other students.  I can tell you that they have yet to fix any of the problems that they had before.
 Selling the company has not helped in anyway since they kept the same training staff.  New location, new state but same old problems seem to plague this company. The new owner bought the company for his son who has no
diving experience what so ever and hardly speaks any english.

No work after graduation program and you have to send out about 800 emails to get a job as my friend and I had to do. We were able to get work but it took all of our time and effort, no thanks to Prodive or their staff.

I have since traveled around and found that the level of training and experience I received at Prodive was so well below what is offered  in other places that I regret having spent my money there. Most importantly they do not have a dive hotel so all of your experience is with other students. 3 or 4 at a time so even then its very limited. I was completely lost the first time I had to handle a large group of divers. That initial experience we should have received at Prodive College. 

So the last word folks is unless you have 5-8 thousand dollars you wish to throw away dont attend this school. And a word of advice to the owners stop deceiving everyone on the website, and hire someone with some experience and speaks english.

Beware, and,

These websites are from the same folks that brought you Neptunes Dive College, ProdiveCollege and all the new sites. Still ripping people off, taking applications not coming through with training. My bro is in manzanillo and he has done nothing in the way of training nor has he gotten his certifications. Infact they even stole 2000 dollars of his money.

Just so you know the folks involved with this are 

Mariano Castro PADI dive instructo (suspended)
Jeronimo Herrejon Delgadillo... PADI Instructor # 233649

Beware of these guys and there operation. PADI America is currently investigating them and Im sure once they find out what is going on they will most definetly fire them from PADI.
