Living The Dream After Instructor Graduation

Finding work after becoming a Scuba Diving Instructor can sometimes be a daunting task, you are competing against people with much more experience who have been working in the industry longer. The best thing about doing your Instructor Course in Phuket is that there is almost always work for new instructors and Aussie Divers will help you to get it. We have awesome and varied post graduation programs, ranging from 'Ride Alongs' with our elite instructors to instructor internships where experience & responsibility can be had in real world environments with real customers, getting you the qualifications & certifications you need to be attractive to employers.

The absolute best way to ensure employability after you graduate to a fully fledged (OWSI) Open Water Scuba Diving Instructor is to continue your training with PADI, especially when it comes to the PADI instructor specialties we teach here at Aussie Divers. Once you have five Instructor specialties under your belt you will become an M.S.D.T or Master Scuba Diver Trainer, which looks much better on your diving resume'. Specialties include being able to teach the PADI Deep Diver (40m), Enriched Air Nitrox, PADI Wreck Diver, Sidemount Diver, Digital Underwater Photographer courses, plus many many more!

Often, when getting a question wrong the candidate will reply, “ I knew that, I don’t know why I didn’t do it”. A candidate could do that multiple times on an exam. The more times a student does that the more pressure builds for the next exam. The good news is that PADI does not expect you to be a physics professor. They just want you to [...]

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to be a Scuba Diving Instructor?

The short answer is YES, yes you do. This is simply because as a PADI scuba diving instructor you are an ambassador for the oceans and scuba diving as a sport, which also means promoting safety and comfort in the water for your customers and students when you are teaching. Without quality swimming skills and your own personal in-water comfort being of an extremely high level, you will simply never be a ' great scuba diving instructor' if the medium in which you teach is always frightening to you because you know you can't swim effectively without a flotation device that will shine through in your teaching. When an instructor is 10 [...]
