Instructor Training

Live and Work in Paradise

Teach scuba diving for a living! Become either an SSI or PADI Scuba Instructor. The Instructor Training Course will fully prepare you to become an Open Water Scuba Instructor. This is a 10 day course plus a further 3 days of extra presentations that teaches you how to instruct recreational scuba diving and prepares you for your Instructor Exam. You sit the Instructor Exam directly after the Instructor Training Course. Once you have passed the Instructor Exam, you are certified as an Open Water Scuba Instructor and able to teach Open Water, Advanced, Rescue and Divemaster students.

Our Instructor Training team with over 50 years experience between them know exactly how to teach scuba diving & will be available to guide, help and facilitate all our Scuba Instructor candidates in a stress-free and relaxed atmosphere.


What's Involved?

Either one of our SSI or PADI Instructor training courses are designed to emphasise learning and development to prepare you for not just your Instructor Exam but also the real world when it will be your turn to teach scuba.

  • You gain knowledge, skills and coaching techniques to teach scuba effectively;
  • The focus is on 'real world' application;
  • Your performance is measured throughout the programme to assist you to improve your abilities;
  • You are given an introduction to the business of diving, including economic, social, cultural, legal, governmental and environmental concerns as well as marketing and customer service.
