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.

However, if you complete your Specialty Instructor training with a PADI Course Director you not only benefit from their experience and advice in the conduct of the course, but you also won’t require 25 diving certifications or proof of attendance at a manufacturer’s workshop – making the process more approachable for those with less experience.

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!

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.
