One of Bitonga Divers goals is to involve as many Moçambicans as possible in Scuba Diving. We do this through Scuba training programs for professionals, for university students studying Marine Biology and Coastal Management and Archaeology, public service agencies like Maritine, Police, Firefighters, and Ministries of fisheries and the Environment.

Divemasters the divemaster certification is the first rung on the professional dive ladder. Divemasters lead dives, assist instructors and act as ocean ambassadors. In Bitonga Divers there are now 26 divemasters. Carlos Macuacua was Moçambique's first divemaster and Anabela Muchunga was Moçambique's first woman Divemaster. Kudzi Victorino was East Africa's first female instructor.

Instructors for most professional divers reaching Instructor is the top of the ladder. Instructors teach every Padi course from open water to divemaster. There are 15 Bitonga Instructors. Also especially noteworthy are Predi and Blessed from Zimbabwe who are African Instructors now working in Moçambique.
