SDI Instructor Course

 

So you’re ready for the next step and to get the chance to introduce new divers to the sport of Scuba diving, see the looks on their faces the first time they breath underwater or see things they have only seen in movies and on TV.  Maybe you want to become an SDI Instructor to start or change careers or so you can travel the world.  The SDI Instructor Course will teach current Divemaster or Assistants Instructors the knowledge to safely function as an SDI Instructor with the abilities to teach SDI Open Water Scuba Divers, Advanced Adventures Divers, Rescue Divers, Divemasters and Assistant Instructors. The program is divided into two sections, an Instructor Development Course (IDC) and an Instructor Evaluation Course (IEC).
The IDC teaches you how to;

  • Schedule course
  • Successfully market scuba
  • Properly teach and design academic and in water sessions
  • Effectively utilize assistants.

The IEC evaluates everything you learned during the IDC.  This is typically a two day evaluation process and evaluates your abilities in:

  • Preparing and teaching academic sessions
  • Knowledge of subject matter
  • Pool/confined water lessons
  • Open water lessons
  • Emergency management abilities
