PADI INSTRUCTOR DEVELOPEMENT COURSE
If you like people, have a passion for scuba diving and want an extraordinary life – become a PADI Scuba Instructor. Teaching scuba diving allows you to share your love of the aquatic world with others while doing what you enjoy – being in, around and under water. PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors are the most sought-after dive professionals around the world because they have completed the program that sets the standard for training dive professionals. At present there is a worldwide shortage of Dive Professionals following the Covid Pandemic so what better time to carve yourself a new career doing something that you love.
You earn a PADI Instructor rating through hard work and commitment, but you’re rewarded with a job that lets you share incredible underwater adventures with others – transforming their lives for the better and enriching your own.
Here at Andark we don’t teach you how to pass the 2-day Instructor Exam, we teach you how to teach and the rest just happens. We have been teaching diving since 1976 at all levels and have a 100% success rate with all of our Professional Training courses so why wait?
