Back to About Steve

There are many reasons why you should train with me, primarily being when done correctly, it will only need to be done once and will set you up for life...

I will take a personal interest in you, allowing ample time to hone your instructional skills before you go out to teach students. During your Instructor Development Course I will concentrate on teaching you what you will need to know to survive in the real world, not just train you to pass the Instructor Examination. I will help you to develop your career and to make a name for yourself within the competitive diving industry of today.

As I teach at a relaxed pace, this will make learning stress-free and positive. After each day I leave plenty of time for studying, relaxing, and to absorb the information taught. As the attention span gets shorter the ability to absorb becomes worse. I believe in equal amounts of training and rest, allowing the information taught to sink in. Each section within each course is broken down into bite size chunks, with ample time given between each section to soak in all its concepts. 

While traveling I have developed professional and friendly relationships with PADI 5-Star Instructor Development Centres around the world, allowing work placement opportunities worldwide - see my Go Pro section. The facilities I use are top of the line and designed to make learning efficient and easy without you worrying about the logistics. 

I only use IDC Staff Instructors which have an unsurpassed working knowledge of all levels of PADI courses, as they are teaching these very courses every day. This gives them valuable insight into the practical everyday situations all PADI professionals face. This experience makes for one of the best instructional teams around.

Want to become one of my team of valued Staff Instructors find out how...

Calendar shows where I will be and duration of my time there. If I am in your area and you want to join a course, contact me for locations. If you see any dates free and would like me to visit your dive centre or location, drop me an email with location, course interest and possible dates.
Want to know more about how your cylinders weight changes during a dive..? Video has information on what effects the weight change and has tests showing cylinders at different air pressures during dives in salt and fresh water. It displays whether they have Negative, Neutral or Positive Buoyancy. More details found at
