In the classroom you will learn presentation techniques to successfully transfer theory knowledge to students. During in-water practical sessions, you will see in action the well-proven teaching method of demo-mimic: that is doing a perfect demonstration of skills, then asking students to mimic you.
You will develop your personal instructing skills including:
How to break down basic snorkelling skills into easy steps.
How to successfully develop the skills of a trainee.
How to give useful feedback to trainees.
Practising your theory and practical instructing skills.
The action-packed Snorkel Instructor Training Course and Assessment includes theory sessions, a theory assessment, teaching demonstrations, a practical skill-development session in the pool, some lesson planning, and the chance to deliver your own mini classroom lesson and mini pool lesson to a small group of three or four fellow attendees.
Course instructors will have plenty of time to deliver personal feedback to everyone involved. On day two of the course you will be assessed on your classroom lesson presentation skills and your snorkelling instructor abilities in the pool. You will also sit a multiple choice assessment on snorkelling theory.
