When it came time to teach my first class after the IE I felt a little unsure of myself. I decided to team teach and it worked out brilliantly. Working together with other instructors, each of us with different strengths, we formed one perfect instructor – like Voltron.
There’s a lot to know as a PADI Member. It’s challenging for one person to know everything about the scuba diving universe (even though some people think they do).
All joking aside, the greater PADI Member community has an astounding amount of knowledge. If you’re thinking of trying something new, like social media, eLearning, or technical diving – there’s a PADI Member out there willing to share great ideas and tips.
… and they’re available on demand from the PADI Pro’s Site.
If you haven’t visited the Business of Diving Webcasts archive yet, there’s a lot of great information there. You’ll hear PADI Members describe how they’ve grown their business using different programs. More than twenty topics are available for download in convenient one hour chunks. Please see topic list below.
View three of these programs and receive one seminar point towards Master Instructor. A typed, one-paragraph summary of each program viewed must be included with the MI app. Please contact PADI customer service for details: 800 729 7234 ext. 2495 or +1 949 858 7234 ext. 2495.
