During the corona virus lockdown we are all looking for ways to enhance our diver education and increase our skills. The PADI Adaptive Techniques Instructor or PADI Adaptive Support Diver course teaches PADI members the fundamentals of working with divers with disabilities. The course teaches you to work with PADI standards thinking outside of the box to enable divers with challenges to be able to take part in and complete PADI Diver courses.

During the enforced coronavirus isolation period PADI Course Director Mark Slingo will be conducting the academic portion of the PADI Adaptive Techniques Specialty Instructor course and PADI Adaptive Support Diver.

Mark is the world’s first paraplegic PADI Course Director and one of the leading instructors regarding disabled diving worldwide as well as being the Director of Training for Disabled Divers International. He has taught a number of the introductory PADI Adaptive Techniques Instructor Courses around the globe and a great person to work with.

The course will be done by pre-study of the PADI Specialty Instructor guide and then through online seminars.

Following completion of the segment you will receive the training completion record to then complete the physical parts of the course with a PADI Course Director Specialty Instructor trainer in your area or with Mark directly either in your area, a worldwide scheduled course location or at his own dive centre.

If you wish there is also the chance to complete Disabled Divers International (DDI) Instructor Training to build on what you learn on PADI Adaptive Techniques and be able to offer limited certifications to divers who are unable to meet performance requirements.

Contact Mark on email mark.slingo@hotmail.com, WhatsApp +447429268569 or +254700945854 or Skype markslingo to find out more about the program and what will be covered in the online training. Use this time that we are all confined away to build your instructor repertoire and be able to offer scuba diving to a new group of people once we are all back in the water.
