Kuwait Mantas could not provide training were it not for its gallant band of qualified instructors who give their time voluntarily. Unlike some other organisations, such as PADI where instructor training only starts after a diver has reached the highest diving grade, with BSAC one can start training as an instructor from Sports Diver level by attending an "Instructor Foundation Course" although one cannot actually become fully qualified until one is a Dive Leader.
Open Water Instructor
Neil is one of those gifted few who have managed to progress from zero (no instructor qualification) to hero (Open Water Instructor) in a week. It required two trips to Doha, Qatar, within that time frame, and a lot of hard work. A remarkable performance!
This has made a great difference to training within the club, and the general level of competence has noticeably improved since Neil joined our band of instructors.
Theory Instructor and Assistant Diving Instructor
Having never dived before arriving in Kuwait in 2011, training by Kuwait Mantas Diving Club Instructors allowed John to attend an Instructor Foundation Course in Doha, Qatar, in November 2016. Subsequently, with great enthusiasm, he joined our band of instructors.
Recently, he successfully participated in the two part, on-line Theory Instructor Examination and has been awarded Theory Instructor status.
