So you’ve signed up for your IDC… (or maybe you’ve passed already – well done!)

Why bother doing more?


Getting a Job!

Continuing your Instructor level education beyond the IDC is an invaluable step towards obtaining the more select career opportunities you really dream of.

Dive Centre Operations Managers are always looking to recruit highly skilled staff who can offer a wide range of courses to potential customers.

The more you can offer, the more employable you become.


Having More Fun

Variety truly is the spice of life – ask any OWSI who’s spent six months in a Caribbean resort, doing day after day after day of Discover Scuba dives… NOT that there isn’t any enjoyment in doing this – There IS !!!

But it’s easy to see how many Dive Pros get much more from life by taking students on DEEP wall dives, or exploring WRECKs, or taking PHOTOs or VIDEO of sharks, or even just having longer dives on NITROX.

By being qualified to teach an extensive variety of Specialty courses, you’ll get more from life as a PADI Professional – and escape the “burn-out” sometimes experienced by less qualified new Instructors.


Specialty Instructor Training Courses

Stress free familiarisation with and practice of Specialty course contents, with a focus on real-world teaching techniques and adding value to the training you offer to students.

This is where the FUN begins !

Successful completion enables new OWSI’s to start teaching Specialties immediately without waiting to reach the 25 certs level.

Master Scuba Diver Trainer [MSDT] package completes FIVE key Specialty Instructor training courses: Deep – Wreck – Nitrox – Night – Drysuit.

This programme includes tips specific to teaching these popular Specialties in the UK dive industry.

Ask about the deal on Unlimited Specialties – usually run in the Red Sea on a Club Dive Holiday covering most if not all available PADI Specialty programmes.
