Recently qualified PADI OWSI are now also AWARE Shark Speciality Instructors

Our recently qualified PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors signed up for the good fight when they became shark advocates this weekend past.

Downbelow and resident PADI Course Director Richard Swann is passionate about shark conservation and never lets an opportunity pass to recruit new friends for sharks.

That’s why when any IDC candidates sign up for the Master Scuba Diver Trainer program, they get the AWARE Shark Conservation Speciality Instructor course for free.

Furthermore, the fees for this course are donated, by PADI, to Project AWARE, meaning not only are you signing up to help spread awareness about sharks, you are also supporting Project AWARE’s invaluable work.

“Our successful IDC class of September 2012 are a very conservation minded bunch,” said Richard during the AWARE Shark Conservation Speciality Instructor Course, “so they’re all very keen to spread this important information.”

Richard lives by the mantra that together we can make a difference and he hopes that our new instructors will enjoy spreading the word for sharks.
