The training furthers teaching abilities and develops candidate’s evaluation and counseling skills through independent study, classroom sessions, guided evaluation training and an internship. Many experienced PADI instructors find this course one of the most rewarding courses to take as it brings you fully up to date with the PADI system and greatly improves mentoring and coaching abilities.
