Did you know?

The launch of the PADI Equipment Specialist Touch has meant that many instructors are interested in teaching the PADI Equipment Specialist specialty course with this revolutionary tool.

How to become a PADI Equipment Specialist Specialty Instructor

UntitledTo make a direct application to become a PADI Equipment Specialist Specialty Instructor, you must be a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, have issued 25 diving certifications and you must have proof of attendance at a manufacturer’s workshop.

There’s good news for PADI Assistant Instructors too: If you complete training with a PADI Course Director, you can become a PADI Equipment Specialist Specialty Instructor too!

5 Reasons Why PADI ReActivate Benefits YOU as a PADI Pro

reactivate_now_crop

PADI ReActivate™ is a revolutionary program specifically designed to encourage and support inactive divers in returning to the water as well as allowing regular divers to practice and refresh their skills. Here are 5 reasons why it benefits YOU as a PADI Professional:

#1 – It gets inactive divers back into the water. You may have customers from long ago who stopped diving because life got in the way. PADI ReActivate offers them a way to refresh rusty skills in a fun and approachable way that will make them feel confident, at ease, and relieved that they won’t have to start all of their training from scratch.

The Benefit to PADI Pros? More active customers = more active profit for your business.

#2 – It’s the way divers learn today. These days, many customers are permanently attached to their digital devices: mobile phones, tablets and laptops. By offering PADI ReActivate Touch, you’ll be able to offer these students a fully interactive and highly PADI University Program Channel Islands Shoot March 24-29, 2007engaging way of learning that will live up to their modern day expectations of learning in the fast paced digital world.

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

#3 – It will help you prepare students for further training. You might have customers who are unsure about taking the next course because they are not quite confident in their skills – perhaps it’s been a little while since they last trained. On the flipside, you might have customers who are almost too eager to start the next course despite being out of the water for a while, and you want to make sure their skills are up to scratch before taking them to the next level. The PADI ReActivate course is the perfect tool to help you – and your students – bridge the gap that time can create between courses.

The Benefit to PADI Pros? Prepared students = safer, more enjoyable and more efficient courses for everyone involved.

#4 – The prescriptive format saves time. Some divers might come to you needing a full refresher on all of their core skills and theory, right back to basics. Others might only need a quick brush-up on one or two brief areas. The beauty of the PADI ReActivate program is iPad-ReActivate Coverthat it will give each and every student a personalised syllabus based on the areas they need to refresh – nothing more. By completing quick review questions at the start of each chapter, they’ll know straight away which topics they might need to study and where they’ll need practice – ensuring you and your students will be able to focus your time effectively on the right areas.

The Benefit to PADI Pros? Knowing what your customer does – and does not – need to refresh = efficient, straightforward sessions which help you make the best use of your business schedules.

#5 – A ReActivated student gets a ReActivated Certification Card. When a student has completed their PADI ReActivate program, they’ll get an updated certification card as part of the package which shows exactly when they completed their refresher. If a diver has comes to your business on their holiday and they have a recently ReActivated certification, you’ll have a much better idea of what to expect from that student before they’ve even hit the water.

The Benefit to PADI Pros? Being able to verify that a diver has recently ReActivated their skills = more efficient trip schedules with fewer surprises.

Equipment Specialist Touch – Help Your Students Learn about Scuba Gear

Discover Scuba Diving 2012

When learning to dive or improving new skills, student divers have a lot of unfamiliar equipment to get to grips with, from cylinders and regulators, to cameras, exposure suits and dive instruments. Many lack the confidence to learn more about the intricacies of how their gear works, because they believe they lack the mechanical knowledge to do so.

The PADI Equipment Specialist Touch – a comprehensive digital product for iOS and Android mobile devices and accompaniment to the Equipment Specialist course – is a fantastic way to help these students believe in their abilities and teach them the essentials of scuba equipment. The immersive, interactive materials include 3D rotating images, videos and quizzes, giving students a realistic insight into how things work in a fun, easy-to-learn way.

“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.

-Kim Langridge, PADI Course Director & Owner, Island Divers

By introducing the PADI Equipment Touch to your student divers and teaching them how and why scuba equipment works, they will understand of the importance of maintaining, servicing and replacing gear when needed. It also helps them make more informed decisions when purchasing new kit – and informed purchases lead to happy customers!

A closer look at PADI Equipment Specialist Touch

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As existing scuba divers, your students will likely know that diving is an equipment-intensive activity. From accessories such as dive lights and underwater cameras, to essential gear like exposure suits, cylinders and regulators, there’s a lot of information for them to comprehend, especially at the start of their underwater adventures.

Unfortunately, many divers are reluctant to learn more about their equipment because they feel they’re not ‘mechanically inclined’. But here’s the good news to share with them: they don’t need a degree in engineering to understand how scuba equipment works; the Equipment Specialist Touch will help them to understand how (and why) certain pieces of scuba equipment work, as well as what components can fail and thus the need for regular servicing.

The PADI Equipment Specialist Touch is a fully interactive and comprehensive digital product for iOS and Android tablet devices. The product covers the following topics:

  • Owning your own gear
  • Scuba Systems
  • Scuba Cylinders
  • Cylinder Valves
  • Regulators
  • Rebreathers
  • Instrumentation
  • Enriched Air Equipment Considerations

This valuable tool provides a beautifully immersive look into scuba equipment through short video clips and 3D rotating images to enable students to obtain a clear visual representation as to how things work and how components fit – and work – together.

Whether students plan to invest in their own gear, or just want to learn a bit more about it in general, the PADI Equipment Specialist Touch will teach them the benefits of owning their own equipment, how to choose it and apply it best across various scenarios, and considerations on care after they’ve invested. What’s more, this fantastic tool is perfect for first-time learners through to experienced divers who want to refresh their equipment knowledge at a later date before taking additional PADI courses.
