Voice of a PADI Dive Instructor

As a PADI Dive Professional, the real learning starts after our PADI Instructor Examination.

PADI Instructor Examination might have been a stressful few weeks for many (including myself), with all the ongoing preparations. Be it the theory, where you seem to have to swallow the book of knowledge down to your heart or the practical skills that we aim for perfection during our training.

It have been almost 6 months since my graduation with Asia Dive Academy. When I look back to my Instructor Development Course , as much as all these skills and knowledge are important to the examination and practicality when an instructor conduct a course, it became so clear after the examination itself that my learning journey had just begun.

As my experience with Amazing Dive grew by weeks and trips, I realized that it takes more than just passing down the skills and knowledge to a diver to benefit them. It is also the preparation for the lesson plans, the trip logistic, making the trip safe and even conveying conservation ethnic. After all, what kind of instructor would I be, to have 1 more student under my teaching, only to have 1 more diver being unaware that the living organisms around him are vulnerable.

All these little learning opportunities are important points especially for an organisation of dive professionals, which I believe should be conversed to a uniformed voice to conserve what we have before it is lost.

Every bi-monthly, Asia Dive Academy organizes a gathering for all instructors within the organization (consisting of multiple dive shops). During the gathering we would aim to hear voices from different instructors, feedbacks are shared and training are discussed.

As a full time instructor with Amazing Dive, this was definitely necessary for me to get to know what other instructors have for me to learn. Be it a hiccup they encountered on a trip, dealing with unprofessional behavior seen or tips on coaching students with difficulty on their skill, it helps me learn to prevent a situation on trip without having to go through the situation.

Looking at over 30 PADI Dive Instructors during the gathering, with everyone coming from different back grounds, jobs and experiences but all for a common passion – spreading the love for diving while we learn to be better, I am definitely at the right place, with the right people and glad to be where I am, doing what I am doing.

Same Season, New Adventures..

Cracking your head and feeling troubled as Tioman Island is closed for the season?

I believe many divers would take this opportunity to arrange for a long haul dive trip holiday. Like you, we are also doing the same, with upcoming trips to places in Thailand, Indonesia and even Maldives, the "Always-Natural" paradise. Ask Us! For more information on our departure dates.

However, if you are one of those workaholics (voluntary or not) who are tied to your work commitments, fret not! This will be a crucial piece of news for you! Amazing Dive will be running weekend trips to Bintan Island! For those who have yet to pick up your PADI Open Water Diving Course and is only available for a weekend, you will be able to go for the trip with minimal disruption to your work schedule. The trip will only be departing on Saturday morning, and we will be back by Sunday evening! With food, accommodation, and dives included, leave your logistic plannings to us and enjoy your short holiday with us!

And as for the PADI Advance Open Water Course divers, come join us on board MV Nautica, and experience the difference between your regular trip and a Live Aboard trip, where we eat, sleep and dive without much travelling for a weekend, leaving from Friday evening and coming back on Sunday.

For our existing PADI Open Water Divers, here's something for you! Sign up this monsoon and enjoy a 10% OFF!
