The latest from our Instructor Development Center

Thank you to all the PADI Instructors from Sunshine Divers and Bans Diving Resort, who recently attended the Internal Staff Update conducted by Course Directors, Guillaume Fargues, Michael Richardson and Natalie Hunt on the 5th March 2015.

The recent update was conducted to inform PADI Instructors of the most recent changes to the Classic PADI Open water course - which is now referred to at the Revised PADI Open water course. New PADI materials including the PADI Videos, PADI Open water manuals both hard copy and digital and PADI Instructor Materials are now available (and in several languages) to be implemented within our dive centres.

"PADI Standards & Updates on the Revised Open Water Course"A classroom session was conducted to bring attention to the importance of following PADI Standards to ensure student safety and dive centre credibility. With the new additional skills including weight belt drop, surface marker deployment, and the mini dive, we will find that schedules of the dive program will be adjusted to ensure student divers are able to fulfill performance requirements.

Following the classroom a short demonstration of these skills were exhibited in the confined pool environment to give instructors options on how to integrate these skills which will only benefit student divers.

As all certified PADI instructors have access to the PADI site, we strongly suggest you keep updated by completing the PADI Member Forum 2015 and Instructor Development Updates that are found on www.padimembers.com
