After finishing your IDC and becoming an instructor you might want to consider teaching divers
a wider variety of diving courses. A good option is to be able to teach PADI Specialties.
Teaching specialty courses greatly improves your employment prospects and earning possibilities
as an instructor as well as it makes teaching diving more rewarding and fun as well as it allows
you to convey your enthusiasm and interest in specialized diving activities to your students.
Specialty instructor course length and price vary depending on the number of dives and
the complexity of the course. The course fee does not include
PADI materials and PADI application fees. To get a good deal on specialty prices you might consider
our MSDT Prep program, that includes five specialty instructor courses in one package.
Equipment & Materials
Depending on the specialty course you are doing you might need some specialized equipment.
This is though not true for every specialty course.
For example, in side mount specialty you will need a different configuration of regulators
and BCD (wing and harness), for full face mask specialty you need a full face mask etc.
Mostly you can rent the gear you do not have but would need for these courses from us.
For details on what specialized dive gear is needed for certain courses,
as well as PADI teaching materials please see pages with detailed description of these courses
or contact us for more details.
Course duration varies from a couple of hours to one day or even more depending upon how many knowledge development,
confined, open water sessions are included in the course. Specific courses (such as ice, altitude, wreck, etc.)
are not available on all locations where we offer instructor training.
Please note that some specialty instructor courses have the user level certification as a prerequisite.
