PADI Specialty Instructor Training at Lanta Diver

At Lanta Diver, we offer a full range of PADI Specialty Instructors Training Courses. If you want to become a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT), or be able to offer your students more options, as Specialty Courses or as Adventure Dives during your Advanced Open Water Courses, then why not look to gain some PADI Specialty Instructor ratings with us here on the west coast of Thailand…

Our Specialty Instructor Training Courses are run by Koh Lanta’s only resident Platinum PADI Course Director, Richard Reardon, and will prepare you to confidently teach these Specialties to your students. Rich has extensive experience working as an Instructor throughout the Asia Pacific region and has taught these courses in many different locations in varying conditions.

Teaching Specialties can be great fun, for both the student and the instructor. But also, with the latest revisions to the Advanced Open Water Course, being able to teach a few Specialties will mean you can offer different options during your AOW courses – such as Dive Against Debris, AWARE Shark Conservation, or dSMB use…
