They say that if you do what you love for a living, you’ll never work a day in your life. If you have an inherent love for scuba diving and the world under the sea, training to become a scuba diving instructor seems like a natural choice. If you’ve had an office job for the past few years and you’ve found yourself staring out of the window contemplating a career change, imagine yourself getting paid to scuba dive every day. Imagine travelling the world, experiencing new cultures, meeting new people, diving for free, improving your diving skills, and cultivating a new level of confidence and leadership. Imagine that your new office is an underwater playground, filled with vibrant marine life, sunken ships, beautiful coral reefs, state-of-the-art technology, and students eager to learn your talents. If this sounds like the next career move for you, here are a few reasons to become a scuba diving instructor.
Travel the World
Scuba diving instructors have the unique opportunity to work in hundreds of different hot-spot vacation destinations around the globe. You won’t be looking out of an office window every day when you are diving off the coast of Honduras, Mexico, California, or the Florida Keys. Hall’s students are placed on multiple continents and work in tropical paradise.
Dive for Free
If you have a love for scuba diving, what would be better than the opportunity to participate in dives that you get paid for? People that have a passion for scuba diving often say that their decision to become a scuba diving instructor was one of the best decisions of their life. If diving every day is your version of “living the dream”, you know what to do. Do what you love and do it often.
Improve Your Diving Skills
From diving instructor training to working as a certified pro, you’ll be diving nearly every day. Naturally, the more specialized skills you acquire, the more attractive you’ll be towards potential employers. A program with highly specialized dive methodologies and advanced skills is a must if you are looking for speedy job placement (Hall’s diving graduates boast a 100% job placement rate).
Calm, cool, and collected is what we aim for. Displaying a high-level of inner confidence comes with time, but a mastery of your craft and the self-assurance of your skills as a scuba diving instructor can help expedite that process. Leading a group of scuba diving trainees is a rewarding and character-building experience that – we guarantee – will change your life. You set the standard, you set the rules, and you ensure the safety of all the dives that you facilitate; rise to the challenge and become the role model for your students (and yourself) that you’ve always envisioned. Being responsible for the lives of your students adds a whole new meaning to the word ‘responsibility’.
Experience Marine Life
There truly is a second world under-the-sea. When you facilitate the dives of your students, you’ll be experiencing maritime beauty while getting up-close-and-personal with coral reefs, sea turtles, seahorses, starfish, manta rays, eels, and countless species of fish. You may even see a dolphin or two!
Dive Instructor Training Florida
Most people work 5 out of the 7 days in a week. If what you are doing for a living isn’t very fulfilling, imagine how much time a year you spend feeling so-so about what you do. If seeing the lightbulb ‘turn-on’ in the eyes of your students’ sounds inspiring, a career path as a scuba diving instructor may be the next move. Travel the world, dive every day, and inspire change in the lives of yourself and your students. Make a coral reef your next office. See people’s eyes widen when you tell them what you do for a living.
