We are running another Tech Deep Instructor course at Davy Jones Tech. This time we have got long term DJL instructor Tom who has also been doing lots of Tech diving here over the past year. And also Scott who has been teaching on Koh Tao for many years. Recently he discovered Tech diving and now he can’t get enough of it!
Tech Deep Instructor course details
The instructor course is an intensive internship that has several different practical and theory sessions. One of the parts that they have to complete is a skill circuit. This involves them demonstrating skills perfectly and then watching a student complete the skill to a level of mastery. They must also give lectures on things such as the history decompression theory. They will need to have an in depth understanding of everything that they are going to be teaching. This is because people who are interested in Technical diving are always keen to ask questions to further understand the type of diving that they are going to be doing.
Overall the course takes a few weeks and by the end of it they will be teaching actual Tec 40, 45 and 50 students (while under supervision from one of our tech instructors). After this they must complete a final exam. It is a great course to take if you would like to make technical diving a part of your career. Not to mention that it looks good to have on any diving CV. Especially as Technical diving is becoming more and more popular.
