5 Reasons Why the PADI Equipment Specialist Touch Benefits YOU as a PADI Pro


The PADI Equipment Specialist Touch is a fully interactive and comprehensive digital product that teaches students about scuba systems, cylinders, regulators, rebreathers, instruments and more. Here are 5 reasons why it benefits YOU as a PADI Professional:

#1 – It’s the modern way to teach the PADI Equipment Specialist course. As smartphones and tablets are becoming more and more popular, it’s important to keep up with the trends of a fast paced digital world. With the PADI Equipment Specialist Touch, your students will have access to a new and highly engaging method of learning that’s ready at their fingertips and will match their modern day expectations.

The benefit to PADI Pros? Meeting expectations = satisfied customers who will enjoy their experience and be more likely to recommend your business.

5#2 – Interactive 3D diagrams will enrich learning. Some students can feel confused about how components really fit together and how they work as a system. The PADI Equipment Specialist Touch combats this issue by adding interactive 3D diagrams that can be rotated and expanded to give students a true 360 degree insight to their equipment. Not only does this assist their understanding, it can also turn a potentially tricky topic into a fun and engaging experience.

The benefit to PADI Pros? Better understanding = effective and enjoyable sessions that will ensure students will want to keep on learning – and diving – with you.

#3 – Communicates the importance of maintenance. After studying the PADI Equipment Specialist Touch, students will have a better understanding of how their equipment works and therefore, how and why it can fail. This will naturally lead to them wanting to take better care of diving equipment (whether that’s your rental gear or their own purchases) and having a greater appreciation for equipment servicing recommendations.

The benefit to PADI Pros? Customers who take care of their kit = less damage and cost to your rental gear and increased profit from servicing and replacement gear sales.

#4 – Empowers customers to make informed purchases. Customers who have the PADI Equipment Specialist Touch will be better informed about the range of equipment and features on offer to them, as well as what will suit their diving needs and how they should take care of their prized purchases afterwards. They might want to upgrade existing equipment or buy accessories to help them look after what they already own.

The benefit to PADI Pros? Informed customers who are happy with their purchases = satisfied customers who will recommend you, and more profit for your business from increased equipment sales.

#5 – It can be used again and again. The PADI Equipment Specialist Touch doesn’t contain knowledge reviews or exams, so although it’s an ideal companion for the PADI_Shaws_April_2015_2223PADI Equipment Specialist course, it can be used for other purposes, too. Divers taking the next step in their professional development might find this a great tool to help expand their resources as well as using it as a teaching tool. New divers might be keen to soak up as much scuba knowledge as possible before taking another course. The portable, digital format means that it’s easy to keep the PADI Equipment Specialist Touch ready at their fingertips no matter when or where they might want to brush up on their knowledge.

The benefit to PADI Pros? A learning tool that divers can revisit whenever they need = knowledgeable customers who will be better prepared for trips and future courses.

“The Touch product is very easy to sell, we just show customers the product on our iPads. It’s bright, very easy to use with really cool expanding diagrams! We have our own PowerPoint presentation that we used to use, but the Touch covers everything in great detail and is easy to use, also makes for great reference material that they can dip into again at any time plus, frees our time up. It’s a great springboard for putting kit like regulator sets into customers’ hands.
