Why should you continue your Instructor Education ??

Once you are a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) you will want to continue your diving education.
All over the world people are discovering new and exciting places to dive, with more and more PADI facilities opening to accommodate this growing market; however at the same time there are more and more people becoming certified as PADI Instructors wanting to fill these vacancies.


To get the job you want, in the location you want, you need to be a cut above the average instructor by not only having a more Indepth knowledge of scuba diving and the business of diving, but by also being able to offer more to both the Dive Centre and their customers. Being able to teach PADI Specialty Courses, Emergency First Response (EFR) Courses, a full range of DAN Courses and DSAT courses, all greatly enhance you chance of getting a job, especially as an new instructor !!!  As a PADI OWSI your first step should be attaining your Emergency First Response Instructor (EFRI) rating, allowing you to teach a complete range of PADI courses.

Not being able to teach your Emergency First Response won't stop you teaching the PADI Rescue Diver Course but it will mean that you will have to give your students to another PADI instructor to teach them the EFR course before they can be certified as PADI Rescue Divers.

Why give your students to someone else ... ???

Your next step should be to get the PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) rating. This assures your future employers that not only can you offer their customers PADI Specialty Training in at least 5 different specialty areas, but you are also an experienced PADI instructor with at least 25 student certifications.

Course Director Chris Owen: PADI, EFR, DAN, DSAT Instructor courses.

Completing Specialty Instructor Training with a PADI Course Director ensures that you not only receive up to date information on PADI standards, valuable hands on training using the latest techniques, but it will also allow you to start teaching these exciting PADI courses immediately, prior to having gained the 25 certifications you need if applying directly to PADI, which can make a big difference !! Another GREAT way to increase your employability is being able to teach DAN courses.

Chris teaches: DAN Oxygen Provider Instructor Course, DAN First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries (HMLI), DAN Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) and Advanced Oxygen Administration.

DSAT courses also go a long way to increasing your chance of a successful job and career: DSAT Gas Blender is a must as which dive centre does not need someone to blend EANx tanks ??

DSAT Tecrec is another growing market and DSAT Tec Instructors are always needed !!!

Further down the road is the PADI IDC Staff instructor Course, which teaches you how to staff Instructor Development Courses (IDC's).

Once certified as a PADI IDC Staff instructor you will not only be able to staff IDCs, giving IDC curriculum presentations and evaluating IDC candidates, but you will also be able to teach the increasingly important PADI Assistant Instructor course, a responsibility only IDC Staff Instructors and PADI Course Directors share.
