For the majority of divers, they’ll never forget the first time they breathed under water, whether it was in the local pool or on a tropical beach as part of their first confined water education. For those who experience anxiety when first breathing underwater, will always remember the experience. And while for the vast majority of divers, the basic certification opens up a whole new world of possibilities however for some, it can lead to the desire and ambition of becoming a scuba diver professional.

Scuba Diving is a sport that boosts self-esteem in people, increases physical fitness, while introducing people about the science and the physiology of diving and also creates an awareness of the environment and respect for the environment. It also teaches individuals how they can contribute positively to the aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. In contrast to other activities, scuba diving is non-contact, three-dimensional, and multi-sensory, and the challenge is on every person who wants to improve as divers, not against other divers. While many divers appreciate the peace and quiet of the underwater environment but on the other hand, diving can be an extremely social sport that encourages camaraderie amongst divers and can lead to lasting friendships.

As a professional scuba diver, you can contribute positively to the lives of others and the natural world. If someone is seeking the scuba training to understand the world around them, as an exercise in self-fulfillment or to discover our underwater culture or to test their own abilities, you are an instructor and assist them to develop the skills of motor and mental skills they’ll require to be able to safely dive and enjoy enjoyable, fun experiences.

The PADI program of diver education includes some of the most extensive educational materials and a system that removes the teaching burden off instructors and allows instructors to focus on individualised instructionsince the majority of students can take their time and pace using the self-study study guides, DVD’s, electronic learning and now, e-books. This allows for instructors to concentrate on the individual needs of each student as well as remediation, and teaching the course in a relaxed and efficient manner. This is what makes PADI programs extremely popular among divers’ students. The materials are able to be used anyplace in the world to provide a standardised course, but instructors like you Instructor must adapt every course to the local culture and environment this is something that you will learn about in your PADI Instructor Training course (PADI IDC).

PADI Instructors are able to work full or part of time at tropical hotels, or local dive centres, on a basis of vocational training during sabbaticals taken from their full-time job, or as part of other work that is seasonal, such as in winter sports or in outdoor summer work. A lot of our candidates who teach as Instructors also have their own full-time jobs , and are employed on weekends as instructors on a freelance basis or, more often, through an established local PADI dive center. In the resort setting, instructors are often taught on tropical islands with tranquil, clear, warm waters, and on stunning coral reefs that are full of fish and other marine life. This dream life inspires many people to change jobs and become a GoPro.

This brings us to the issue of how do you become an instructor with PADI or a Divemaster?

From the time of certification, a diver can move through the PADI diver education system starting with beginning with the Open Water course to the Advanced Open Water course, and finally, the Rescue course that includes CPR/1st aid certificate (EFR course) prior to enrolment in the Divemaster program. The courses can be completed in succession and after having completed all the components in the PADI Divemaster course and achieving the minimum of 60 dives, a diver will be certified as an PADI Divemaster. There are a variety of methods for getting through the Divemaster course. It can be completed through an local dive center on a part-time basis or by interning in courses or through practical simulated elements of training. A lot of candidates opt to take time out and take part in a course over several weeks in the tropical region to get real-world experience while training. This is the preferred option in our resort on Utila in Honduras as well as Thailand as well as Thailand and the Red sea are also popular options for Divemaster internships because of the excellent diving opportunities and the affordable and high-quality life style they provide.
