DIVEHEART INSTRUCTOR & BUDDY TRAINING
DIVEHEART ADAPTIVE SCUBA TRAINING
At this very moment, specially trained Diveheart
instructors are training and certifying people with
disabilities all over the world. You are invited to
join this elite group of dedicated
Instructors and buddies!!
The Diveheart Instructor/Buddy Training
Course has been shared with dive professionals all
over the world including Australia, China, Israel &
all over the U.S. & Caribbean.
The Diveheart adaptive scuba training for instructors & dive buddies is very unique and has compiled the best practices that exist in the field of adaptive scuba training for individuals with disabilities.
During the course, you will learn about a variety of
disabilities, what accessibility means as well as go thru
empathy training so you will know what it is like to dive
with a disability. During lectures you will be introduced to
a variety of physical and cognitive disabilities, Diveheart
training procedures and certification criteria, special
considerations for classroom and in-water training,
equipment and accessibility.
During confined water training, you will dive as a paraplegic with your legs tied together. You’ll wear a blacked out mask so you can relate to diving blind, and be put into typically problematic training scenarios to experience what your students will experience. As a
scuba instructor, you teach your students to do
what you do. If you haven’t experienced what they
will experience, you do not have the tools to teach
them. This will give you the tools.
Student logistics can change significantly when
disabilities are introduced into your tried- and-true
training procedures. The open water training will
prepare you to be flexible when you are conducting
open water training and dive planning.
