The new OWSIs do a week of Instructor Specialties

After all of the excitement of the #PADI #IE the new #OWSIs just had time for celebrations and then straight back to it for the training on #Instructor #Specialties

So much to pack into the next few days, but they started with some amazing #diving briefs and straight out to the ocean.

Time to put into practice all that they have learned over the last few weeks……

Our new PADI Instructor Professionals ready to take on the MSDT

After the excitement of the #PADI #IE where yet again we had a 100% Pass rate, and after a well deserved day off, the new #Instructors were back for yet more training.

To ensure our PADI Instructors are ready to get that all important first #scuba #diving job we provide them with #MSDT Prep.

As we have the only in-house PADI Course Director who can teach Instructors, and with more than 25 Specialties on offer the possibilities are endless.

We are now entering our 12th year of training PADI Pros in #Tenerife and we are not only the Official Number #1 PADI training Centre but also the most experienced, no-one has trained more PADI Pros than our Team.

Finally, back after his Staff Instructor course, Zeke from Granadilla Diving, was back to complete his PADI Search and Recovery Instructor Specialty.

It goes without saying, he successfully completed all the requirements, to add yet another PADI course to his already expansive offerings at his Dive Centre.

A Night Dive from the Surface

When on a night dive, did you ever wonder what you look like from the surface?

Well wonder no more…

Here is a shot of one of the Buddy Teams last night during their #PADI #Night #Dive #Instructor #Specialty at #Abades

 

 

Instructor Specialty Week!

This week is Instructor #SpecialityWeek!

Our new and excited PADI Instructors are upping their game, becoming Instructors in a multitude of PADI Specialities.

For starters this week we have already had #Deep #Wreck #DSMB #EmergencyO2 #Navigation #Nitrox #SharkAware and #CompressorOperator (a PADI Distinctive Specialty written by our very own Platinum Course Director Kim). Bring on the rest of the week!

And another PADI Instructor Specialty…

Take 10 new #PADI #Instructors , add 2 more Instructors from a previous #IDC , a dash of #night time and you have the makings of an #awesome PADI Night #Diver Instructor #Specialty

After a busy day full of #training and #learning just enough time to squeeze in one more Specialty.

It was great to catch up with Ryan and Maria… and wishing them success on their new #adventure
