Instructor Trainer

At Khao Lak Scuba Adventures, our PADI Course Director (instructor trainer) is proud of giving you the best opportunity. Not only to become a PADI Instructor, but also to take your training and experience as far as you want to go.

With 7 liveaboards there’s lots of opportunity for diving and teaching. We have lots of experienced instructors to guide or advise you, and a Course Director always on-hand.

We run regular Instructor Development Courses throughout the season (Oct – May) and offer paid work experience to all our new Instructors.

Our 2 Course Directors Mark Soworka and Ann Christmas are both available throughout the IDC.  They present information, assessing, counselling and advising you. They run workshops to re-enforce important learning points and are available after class if you need extra time on anything. Our 100% pass rate speaks for itself.

As our in-house Course Director, Ann is around for help, support, advice and tips as you start your first steps as an instructor.  Many of our new Instructors stay on and work for us. Some stay for a season, some for several seasons. Other instructors complete their training with us and then carry on exploring new areas in other parts of the world.

At the end of each IDC we offer Specialty Instructor Training to speed you on your way to PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer.

When you’re ready to take the next step we offer IDC Staff Instructor Courses. In these you learn how to assess, mentor and counsel Instructor Candidates.
