Team teach some classesAfter certification as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor you will be able to teach quite a few PADI Courses
We have found in the past that a lot of newly certified PADI OWSI's are not really happy to do this by themselves yet.
Although this is very normal (first time is always difficult even after great preparation) we understand this is not a very comfortable situation.
The good news is that our instructors are prepared to team teach with you. After you find your first PADI Open Water candidate you can come over and teach this course yourself. One of our instructors will be your assistant during this course to help you cement your foundation.
Just let us know and we can schedule you in. Your CDC team is ready whenever you are!
