What is a Virtual Course Director and why I need one..?

I am sure you know that every PADI Dive Centre should have a PADI Course Director working with them. I am offering my knowledge, business experience and qualifications to make a difference in your Dive Centre with this unique service you can have Steve Martin as your Virtual Course Director, this will enable you to have all the advantages of an inhouse Course Director but at a much reduced cost as I will not be there every day, sounds interesting then keep reading through this page to see what services are on offer...

If the Staff/Training Manager you have on-site already is not offering all you need please do not hesitate to contact me and find out how I can work with them to improve your Dive Centre Services, every inquiry of this nature will be treated with the highest confidentiality as I understand the implications of looking else where.

One suggestion would be a first visit of approx 2-4 weeks for initial setup, then follow up with a visit once every 3 months for 1-2 weeks this is flexible and schedule to be agreed by Dive Centre and Steve after initial setup for year to follow.

Return Visits will try to be scheduled around Instructor Development Courses (I.E's) in your area so I can spend the first week training Instructor Candidates just before an (I.E) then after successful completion at I.E the following weeks putting my additional services in place (get the new Instructors focused on making your Dive Centre a success) 

Other reasons for return visits are to keep your Dive Centre up-to-date, insuring the latest courses are on offer and the high standards that were set are being maintained. I will cover quarterly updates (go over training bulletins from PADI with Staff) since my last visit, provide hands on sales training for all Staff and Instructors and train any new staff put in place whilst I was away. My main goal is to make your Dive Centre a success and through teamwork create a great dive team.

Overview of Services...

As you can see through looking at my website, I specialize and offer Pro Active and Interactive Training in all areas of Scuba Diving Training whether it be Instructor Development, Technical Diving Training Centre, First Aid Training (EFR Centre Development) and Unique - Dive Centre Services everything I can offer will be available to you at no extra cost after we have agreed annual contract and the schedule for that year. The price will be in two parts one for the initial setup and second a week by week rate for visits within that contracted year. The Schedule for the remainder of the year will be agreed by the dive centre and myself during the initial setup phase. 

Can I get in contact with you when your not here in person..? 

The answer to this is YES - When away from your centre I will still be able to offer advice and guidance (remotely) through many different ways email (I check daily), Skype (video conferencing) and over the phone if away from my computer (Internet). I know just how important it is to get back to each customers inquiry and that situations arise where you need a Course Directors advice.
