Specialty Instructor

You became a PADI Instructor because you loved to dive. Maybe it is underwater photography, or wreck diving. Maybe Sidemount or fish identification that really excites you. Share those passions with your students as a specialty instructor.

At Phangan International Diving School we offer specialty instructor programs to meet every interest and to earn you more sales opportunities. These can be bundled together into our Master Scuba Diver Trainer program or added one by one based on your needs. Specialty Instructor ratings make you a far more valuable member of a dive centre team, and set you apart when looking for a new employment opportunity. Most importantly they let you teach the same diving that you love! Whatever your underwater passion, PIDS can help you turn that passion into a great business opportunity through our specialty instructor programs.

PIDS currently offers specialty instructor training in the following areas:
Humans are curious about their surroundings, and scuba divers are especially curious about what they see underwater. The AWARE Fish ID specialty course is designed for those with an interest in identifying the species and fish families, and gaining a greater understanding of the life they love under the waves.
