Resident Platinum PADI Course Director Richard Swann heads our Go PRO team of PADI Instructor Trainers, and collectively work together to conduct our PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) 4 times a year at our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya Island!
Richard actively teaches professional-level PADI ratings and oversees all our Go PRO internship programs development at our Gaya Island beach house.
It is our belief that internship candidates benefit from observing the instructional skills of our entire island staff team when assisting them to conduct a PADI course or program. Each PADI Instructor demonstrates, controls, supervises, and generally conducts dive skills in different ways to one another, and they will continue to evolve their teaching methods.
Candidates will refine their skills in the same way too, and especially once they begin teaching in the dive industry, their skills will be refined further from their experiences.
Our Go PRO team’s purpose is to counsel our candidates through their journey to becoming confident dive educators, however there is a level of independence expected of our candidates. Dive experiences (and the Go PRO team would agree with this) is what improves instructional skills!
