How to become a diving instructor?

Today, a person who wants to learn diving is provided with a wide variety of opportunities to make a choice. But if you already have enough knowledge and skills to educate someone else, then you will need to pass a series of additional tests in order to prove your ability to teach.

So, how to become a diving instructor? There are several international organizations entitled to issue permits for the activities of diving instructors. One such organization is the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI). A person who has the right to train PADI instructors is called a course-director. In accordance with the requirements of the above-mentioned organization, for admission to the delivery of all required offsets, you must have at least one hundred officially confirmed dives. The age at the time of diving instructor courses must be at least eighteen years. It will not be out of place to have as many amateur PADI certificates as possible. It is advisable that all amateur courses be completed. It is also a prerequisite for obtaining a divemaster certificate that you must have a document on passing a special medical examination that gives permission for scuba diving.

A diving instructor can be trained anywhere in the world, but do not forget that training under the system of the Professional Association of Diving Instructors is a very responsible process that contains many requirements that must be strictly observed. A diving instructor is not just another title acquired in the process of reaching new heights in the practice of scuba diving. This is also a series of requirements and skills that are not mentioned in the learning process, but which a person must have for this type of activity. First of all, this, of course, is communication skills, because without the ability to communicate, it is hardly possible to convey the necessary information to any person so that he understands it well. Another important quality of a diving instructor should be the desire not only to explain the theoretical material in detail, but also to show it in practice, using his own example, thereby consolidating the knowledge gained from the student.

In addition, for a successful career as a diving instructor, you need at least basic marketing, medical training, and knowledge of at least one foreign language, preferably English.

Also, one should not forget that passing the first exam for permission to engage in instructor activities in diving is not at all a reason to relax and “rest on our laurels.” The level of training of instructors can also be different, and in the most systematic international organization of diving PADI there are more than ten such levels. And in order to prove that you maintain your knowledge and skills at the proper level, you must periodically re-pass the diving instructor standards. And in order to pass exams for a higher-level instructor, you should know and be able to double as much. But if you really love the world of scuba diving and every new dive brings you true pleasure, then you will not have any difficulties in comprehending the new heights of diving mastery.

What special courses can a diving instructor teach? The answer to this question depends on the skill level of the dive master. The higher the level, the more opportunities are provided for training. For example, at the very initial professional level, PADI Divemaster, the teacher gets the opportunity to independently train everyone in the first level of training, which is called PADI Skin Diver. PADI Divemaster can also be an assistant instructor of a higher level. x those who wish to study. and divemasters. Ultimately, it all depends on you and your desire to improve. So, dare, we wish you success!
