Day 4

Tonight was the first presentation night.  The topics were snorkel and mask.  The evening started with "Why I Dive".  Video was captured tonight so the instructor candidates can see just what exactly the students and I am seeing.  We ended the night, late again, working our way through the risk management handbook.

Day Three

Tonight the Instructor pre-qualification test was gone over in detail.  This was a good measure of where the diver Instructor Candidates are and ultimately showing them where to concentrate their studies on.

Next week we go over risk mangement Hand book.  The candidates will do a 5 to 10 minute classroom presentation on mask and snorkel. 

They will also give a brief talk on "Why I Dive".

Day 2

Talked at length about Instructor Training.  Requirements, training and testing.

A presentation was made following the classroom presentation format.  It was gone over minutely, dissected and discussed.  We also discussed the reasoning behind the format.

Each candidate discussed the reasons why they wanted to become instructors.

The students were given the pre qualification test to take at home.

And so it begins...

We have another Taker!

Arbrey Stiefer has chosen to begin Instructor training with John Branch.  I am excited at the prospect of having these two advanced to Scuba Instructor.

Divers, are you ready?

First night

And so a new Instructor Candidate begin the pathway to Instructor tonight.

We went over the requirements to begin training.  Training outline for what is expected and how to prepare.

A pre-qual test was given.  We will go over this next meeting.

Superior Leadership and Instructor training are founded in the “Loved One” concept. That is, it is only those we would trust to train our loved ones to dive that we graduate at any level and especially so for leadership and instructor certification.

Good Luck!
