During this training, we will look at what has been learnt during the dive guide, the science of diving and the Assistant Instructor trainings. We will learn and practice all the skills and teaching technics for the Open Water, the Advanced Adventurer, the Nitrox and also the Stress and Rescue Course.
We will work a lot on the teaching and learning methods, using the new SSI digital materials at their best as a student but also as a teacher. We will also talk a lot about marketing and communication, and all the different duties of an instructor, but also all the costs and incomes related to a dive center, so you can open you own dive school if you want to, but first of all you’ll be able to work as a model instructor, with great skills and a good understanding of the diving industry and business, so you can find a job easily.
