What is Instructor Support and do I need it..?

The training and services I am offering here are to help Instructors not only with Career advancement but allow each individual armed with these additional skills, to make a huge impact on the Dive Centre you are working for now and future Dive Centres looking for your employment. Having these "tools under your belt" will increase your employment opportunities and will make you stand out from every other Dive Professional in the competitive Dive Industry we have today...

Support Programs available are...

  • Customizing PADI PowerPoints (PLG's) - PADI offers a great range of materials for Instructors to use including many PowerPoint classroom presentations (PLG's), what they do not include is your own personal information which is a big part in your "word of mouth" advertising. Adding this to your presentations we set you apart from everyone else and get everyone talking about you and the centre you work with. I have customized all of PADI's PowerPoint Lesson Guides and added video clips and images of local diving throughout for many Dive Centres I have worked with.


  • Creating your Own PowerPoint Presentations - PADI does not have PowerPoint presentations for every course the NEW Digital Under Photography Specialty Course is the latest I have designed a presentation for the x3 images above and the first few slides of the presentation... Let me show you how quickly this is to do and the secret to building and saving your custom presentations so they will work on any computer when you travel (no more missing this file or cannot find the following video clip when you click on a icon)
  • Specialist (Con-ed) Continued Education Training - Your an Instructor who works for a busy Dive Centre and there seems to be lot's of students coming through the door. They must be doing Courses..? You keep checking your Certifications (week by week) on the PADI Pro's Site and its not going increasing much even though you seem to be in the pool twice a week and at Open Water sites every weekend. If this sounds familiar and you love to teach, find out how I can help you to change this so you to are getting well over 100 Certifications each year and receiving awards like mine below... 


  • Specialist Training Workshops - I have put together Rescue, Specialty Diver and First Aid Training Workshops, they were designed not just to help keep your own skills sharp and up to date but to offer you all the "tips and tricks" I have picked up over the years. I will provide help on when & how to market and conduct these courses, leaving you feeling comfortable offering to your future students within the Dive Centre you work for.

  • Eve Database Training - Well if you have not heard of EVE 5 (Electronic Virtual Employee) yet then have a look now at there website - I can train you whether your Dive Centre Staff or any Instructor wanting to have the ability to use EVE in your next workplace. We will cover how to setup and maintain EVE as well as input all your current Student Database into EVE. A little more about Eve, it  is a revolutionary computer software program designed to assist the dive professional in today’s competitive market. Eve allows you to maximize profit and save valuable time by keeping an up to date record of business transactions. Once the records are in place (this is easy), Eve can start her magic. This program really does bring profit to your fingertips.  
  • Comprehensive Sales Training Do you want to fit in and feel confident at your new dive centre, maybe just have the ability to work in all centres around the world?  This program was designed to level the playing field between "who can sell and who can not" its all about understanding what your customers what they want and expect from dive centres and Instructors... (see here for more details)
