Becoming a PADI Scuba Instructor is the start of a new adventure. It opens up a world of opportunities and experiences both in the water and out and often a life changing experience.


But like any new career path or lifestyle choice the training and development you do in the beginning is the foundation on which everything later is built. Your Instructor Development Course is one of the most important decisions you will make. Do you want to just pass the Instructor Examination or do you want to learn how to be a great instructor?

The small class size meant more customized training and more time focused on improving my weak areas making the IE seem easy - Yui Tashatorn  
The pool is also great for the confined sessions, as we were the only ones ever in it and was big enough to perform all the skills without having to worry about space. If I do more training it will be with these guys. - Rob Meiklejohnn    


The high quality of teaching for the theory side of the IE meant that I went from getting 33% in practice exams to 100% in the I.E., and the pool and OW training made it so that we found the IE much easier than other candidates. - Jack Walton  


The amount of experience that we have gained in two weeks under Kevin's tuition has been phenomenal. - Ashish  


Because it was a smaller group size we were able to get personal attention. - Joe Nitchman  


I used kiwi diver after professional recommendations within the dive industry and was not disappointed. I received up to date training in a small group allowing for a lot of direct interaction and feedback with Kevin. - Sam Ponsford  


Extremely thorough with everything, the days were long but when the I.E came along, it was so easy, as we had been so well prepared. - Rob

We don't teach people how to pass The IE. We provide high quality training on how to become one of the best instructors in the industry and how to teach to the highest standards.     By taking the time and providing the personalized attention to our candidates we are rewarded with watching them develop into true dive professionals. The Instructor Examination then becomes just another day at work. - Kevin Black, Course Director @ Kiwidiver
