There is no “I” in TEAM

by PADI Course Director Garth Schumann

The concept of teamwork is extremely important to the success of any team. All coaches talk about working as one unit, as a unified team. Teamwork and unselfishness create the backbone of a great team, without them a team cannot realistically compete. You can have a group of superstars, but if they do not work well as one unit, chances are they are not going to be as successful as you would think. The team working as one cohesive unit is going to be the key in their success. As a PADI 5-Star Instructor Development Centre, almost the highest and a most sought after rating within the diving industry Perth Scuba outshines the competition in knowledge, experience and professional standards and have once again proved that as a team all things are possible.PADI Instructor Exam

Perth Scuba is a productive dive centre that has divers that share common goals, a common vision and have some level of interdependence. Perth Scuba has come into existence through shared attitudes about a passionate sport. We may have come together for a number of different reasons, but our goals are the same – to achieve peak performance and experience success and have fun in the process. All our dive course goals may differ but the means by which one gets there is the same – teamwork. Every staff member of the team is accountable when it comes to teamwork.

Career opportunities for the PADI professional have never been better, especially in Perth. After a huge increase in diver certifications, recreational diving continues to expand all over the world. Almost anywhere there’s a tropical island, you’ll probably find a dive shop with a PADI Instructor, and this means you can get a job in scuba diving in a lot of cool places.

PADI Instructors have many advantages over instructors from other organizations. These include not only more member support, better communications, new programs and far superior teaching materials in many languages, but also recognition by governments and educational institutes all over the world as having an international standard of quality.

Graduates in our PADI Instructor Development Course enjoy an almost 100% success rate in finding work either here or abroad. Their success is a result of our commitment to high quality courses, as well as our dedication to preparing the candidates for teaching in the real world. Passing the Instructor Examination is not the main objective. Successful employment should be the goal of every newly certified PADI Instructor. Our goal is to get you there. Our program offers many unique advantages over others and it’s highly unlikely you’ll find a more qualified and dedicated team anywhere.

The IDC is your final step in the quest to become a PADI Instructor. The IDC is simply a combination of the Assistant Instructor and the Open Water Scuba Instructor courses. Normally these two courses are run concurrently. During the IDC, You’ll learn to use and adapt the PADI system of diver education to individual student needs. Comprehensive training, supported by a wide variety of PADI educational materials, earns PADI Instructors respect from both students and peers.

If you are you dreaming of hanging up your suit and tie, leaving the office behind and reaching for your wetsuit, suntan lotion and towel and looking for a life in the sun and sea or leaving college eager to leap into the excitement and adventure of the underwater world and planning on diving your way around the world or just fancy working in an industry which allows you to meet people, go places, and see things most people only ever dream of then allow the team at Perth Scuba to make these dreams a reality.

Many people work part time in the dive industry not only do they have their “desk job” but as a PADI instructor they can earn extra money and teach their friends and family. Whatever your reasons for choosing to become a PADI Instructor you will find that it not only allows you to find work almost anywhere in the world… but also that it is an awesome way of life!

I have been a PADI Instructor professionally for 13 years now and have trained and conducted diver education in 25 countries worldwide, converted hard core military divers, instructor trainers from different organisations and commercial divers to the PADI system of training and I am still blown away by the opportunity of seeing:

  • Fear changing into courage…
  • Faint-hearted converted into accomplishment…
  • Timidity transformed into confidence…
  • Anticipation turned into passion…

And also as a Scuba Instructor I am privileged to:

  • Open mind and hearts to the hidden beauty of nature’s creation and our obligation to protect it…
  • Give self esteem to another person…
  • Teach the value of character and integrity…
  • Transform another human being and change their life for the better and forever…

Perth Scuba is evolving and we encourage you the diver to be part of this awesome transition. We, the staff are continually upgrading our knowledge and development to offer you our valued customer a better experience with superior service. By offering accredited training in Applied First Aid, Certificate IV in Training and assessment to the Diploma of Outdoor Recreation.

Congratulations to Mark van der Poel attaining his rating as a PADI Course Director, Ian Ross assisting me in a complete IDC and on the way to becoming a Master Instructor, Joshua Phillips and “Terrible Terry” attaining their Master Scuba Diver Trainer certifications and to the following IDC candidates for completing their IDC and becoming PADI Instructors: Jamie Kiddle, Tom Bellamy, Glen Outhred and a special word of encouragement to Chris Harrison for an outstanding achievement. Chris walked into Perth Scuba a few Saturdays ago fresh off the plane from London enquiring about becoming an instructor and that morning I found him in my classroom ready to complete the whole program proving that the “dive today” approach to all courses most certainly works.

A huge thank you to Lee and the whole team at Perth Scuba for mapping out an amazing journey, lets enjoy the ride together.

 Just remember T.E.A.M. – Together Everyone Achieves More!
