More scuba diving and more fun sharing what interests you – that’s what teaching specialty diver courses is all about. The best way to learn how to make your specialty diver courses really special is to take a specialty instructor course from your a PADI Course Director and we have one here at Performance Diver! Specialty instructor courses provide teaching tips and hands-on experience that you can implement right away. With 25 standard PADI Specialty Diver courses, and numerous distinctive specialties, you have lots of choose from – so get going.

All PADI Instructors will benefit from taking specialty instructor training courses, especially those who are ready to step up to the Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) rating, which requires at least five PADI Specialty Instructor certifications.

Why complete your PADI Instructor course with Performance Diver?

Great question! There are many companies offering PADI Instructor courses, so here is why we think you should consider us:
  • We don't require our Instructor Candidates to take their course through the Tertiary education system, so our costs are much lower. This means that we prioritise and teach the course that PADI has designed, to make you an effective and employable PADI Instructor without lumbering you with the huge student loan at the end of the course. 
  • We have a 100% pass record for our IDC students at the PADI Instructor Exam! 
  • We complete the theory segments of the AI, OWSI or IDC program in our well equipped classrooms here in our dive shop in Takapuna, rather than forcing you to teach yourself with a purely e-learning based course! We find that students learn better, faster and ultimately become more knowledgeable Instructors when the theory is completed in person with our PADI Course Director Andy Stewart, backed up by our team of IDC Staff Instructors.

Course Prerequisites:
  • Already be a certified PADI Instructor. PADI Assistant Instructors, instructor candidates in training, and PADI Divemasters are eligible to enroll in certain specialty instructor courses. Some specialties have additional prerequisites and exit requirements – ask as for details.
  • Complete the Dive Medical form. Click here to print the PADI Medical Form for diving. If you answer yes to any of the medical questions you must complete a Dive Medical check with your Doctor and obtain written medical clearance before the start of the course as we can't allow you in the water without it.
  • Students must be at least 18 years of age.
  • Click here for diving course terms & conditions. By purchasing this service you agree to all terms & conditions.
