The Instructor Development Course focuses on all the practical techniques needed to improve your delivery of open-water training.
The action-packed day is based around three open water dives. You will do a wreck dive (typically 15-20m) where you deliver mini-lessons on good wreck diving technique – this extends your instructor repertoire beyond basic skills, so that you can now teach the skills used on real-life dives. You’ll also have an instructor-development demonstration dive and an instructor-development teaching dive (both at around 6m) – these are where you learn how to help improve other instructors’ teaching skills. You will get the chance to plan a series of mini lessons on topics taken from BSAC’s portfolio of SDCs and will see a series of demonstrations, including how to teach dive management.
During in-water practical sessions, you will get the chance to run a mini lesson and observe, intervene and give constructive feedback to other instructors. You will develop your personal instructing skills and learn how to manage training sessions. There will be plenty of feedback from course instructors who will give you advice and guidance on your personal progression.
