Speciality Wreck Diver Instructor practice session on a small fishing wreck in the TAR parkSabah, Borneo: The adventure continues for some of our recent successful PADI Instructor Development Course IDC candidates with a slew of speciality instructor training courses.

Our resident PADI Course Director Richard took the new Open Water SCUBA Instructors to new depths, literally and figuratively, while he conducted several speciality instructor courses.

PADI Course Directors are the only PADI professionals qualified to teach instructors how to be speciality instructors.

Each instructor speciality that the Open Water Instructors acquire, make them more valuable employees with an increasingly diverse skill set to offer future employers.

The particular 5 specialities are also a prerequisites for becoming a Master Scuba Diver Trainer MSDT, along with also qualifying 25 divers.

Kath, George and Downbelow’s home-grown hero, Wellson, are now all fully qualified instructors for the following specialities:

  • Wreck Dive,
  • Deep Dive,
  • Digital Underwater Photography, and
  • Enriched Air Nitrox &
  • Emergency Oxygen Provider.

Congratulations to all, especially Downbelow’s Wellson who is well on his way to becoming a Master Scuba Diver Trainer MSDT.
