Know Your Instructor Trainer’s Experience
More important than the training agency, the experience your Instructor Trainer has in different environments and situations will aid him or her in teaching you to be a better instructor. Don’t hesitate to ask your potential Instructor Trainer questions about his or her experience in the field of diving. Make sure their experience aligns with your career plans, whether that’s wreck diving, cave diving, technical diving, CCR Rebreather diving, or more.
Sometimes it is better to train in the environment where you will be teaching. ProTec instructors trainers have trained, dived and explored caves all over the world including: Austria, Egypt, Tanzania, Caribbean Mexico, Bahamas, Madagascar, China, Australia, Haiti, Dominican Republic, United States, Spain, Italy, and France.
Many of our instructors are active contributors to our blog. We recommend you read about their experiences, not only as inspiration, but also so you have a clear understanding of what it’s really like to be an advanced dive instructor. Please click on the links below to learn more.
