At Dive Utah, we want our students to be surrounded by the best possible divers.
Both our Divemasters and our Assistant Instructors go through extensive training to become certified assistants to our Instructors. As an Assistant Instructor, you'll be actually teaching different parts of different classes.
You'll learn more about the PADI System of Diver Education and how to become a diving educator rather than instructor. You'll learn to teach the academic sections of several PADI classes.
You'll refine your skills and learn to teach in water.
We have one Open Water portion where we do the same at the lake.
You'll need to be PADI Advanced Open Water, Rescue Diver and Divemaster certified or equivalent. You need to be in good physical condition for diving and have a diving-medical exam conducted within the last year. You must have a minimum of 60 logged dives. As an Assistant Instructor, you are expected to have your own equipment that is professional, both in appearance as well as performance. (Tanks and weights can be provided.)
