Enjoy nothing better than passing on your enthusiasm about diving to others? Why not train as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor? Taking the Instructor Development Course may well be a life-changing decision…

If you are interested in tips and guidance on developing your professional level skills whether or not you sign up to one of the courses immediately then our Course Director, Rob Mackean, publishes an occasional newsletter to help you along the way.
