Instructing is the imparting of abilities and skills by acting, unlike teaching, when the teacher is required to transfer knowledge only. It’s a great privilege to guide people and provide them with new abilities, especially when it comes to diving instruction when the instructor takes his students to a new and unfamiliar environment in which all the senses change.
The Diving Instructor Course is an interesting field that combines many levels of instruction. Giving people the ability to dive underwater safely and with pleasure is no small matter! You need to be a person who wants to be exposed to a very integrated training world that includes patience, leadership, knowledge, psychology, personal example, professionalism, safety and more.
The Instructor course will give you an opportunity for one of the most rewarding jobs in the world! Explore every corner Columbus would only dream of, meet interesting people, experience new places and most importantly, give people a gift for their entire life - a true encounter with the sea world and the ticket to visit the blue world that dominates our globe.
