Continuing Education Courses

'The good ones create, but the great ones steal!'

More scuba diving and more fun sharing what interests you – that's what teaching specialty diver courses is all about. The best way to learn how to make your specialty diver courses really 'special' is to take a specialty instructor course and 'steal our tricks and techniques'. With a staff of 6 Course Directors, we have trained a lot of divers and know the best ways to manage your course so that you can: meet the dive requirements, make sure your students are safe and have fun doing it. Specialty instructor courses provide teaching tips and hands-on experience that you can implement right away. We teach over 50 different PADI Specialty Instructor courses and distinctive specialties, which means you have lots to choose from.

All PADI Instructors will benefit from taking specialty instructor training courses, especially those who are ready to step up to the Master Scuba Diver™ Trainer (MSDT) rating, which requires at least five PADI Specialty Instructor certifications.

PADI Assistant Instructors, instructor candidates in training, and PADI Divemasters are eligible to enroll in certain specialty instructor courses. Some specialties have additional prerequisites and exit requirements – just ask and we can let you know what those are.

What will you learn?

You’ll learn new techniques and ways to fine-tune your existing skills and teaching methods. Or, you might learn completely new specialties that you have always wanted to try, but did not have someone to show you how to do it…it’s all possible. Plus, you’ll get great ideas for marketing your specialty diver courses.
