HSA Instructor Training Course
The HSA Instructor Training Course will equip you with the skills and knowledge
necessary to work with a wide range of disabilities. In addition, you will be able to
run the HSA Dive Buddy Course.

The Instructor Training Course provides 3 full days of intensive, insightful theory and
application for those instructors eager to accept the challenge of sharpening their
teaching skills. Each instructor acquires medical information through a series of
lectures on disabilities - what they are and how they relate to diving - followed by a
series of confined and open water exercises, designed to simulate disabilities.

By "acting out" these disabilities, instructors actually experience what it's like to BE a
mobility or sight-impaired diver, a sensitising , often surprising revelation even for
instructors who have been teaching diving for many years.

Courses are run periodically throughout the year by our in-house HSA Course
Directors, based on the level of demand. Alternatively, we are able to tailor a course
to suit dive centres or clubs at a convenient time and location.

Please contact us for further details.

HSA Dive Buddy Course
Course Pre-requisites:


This course can be undertaken by any
qualified diver from any recognised
training agency.

The HSA Dive Buddy Course is a hugely rewarding course aimed at providing you with
the skills and knowledge necessary to dive with those who have a disability.

Maybe you know someone, a friend or family member, you'd like to involve in scuba
diving. Or, you'd welcome the challenge of learning about disabilities, accessibility
issues and how to dive with people who have disabilities. Whatever your reasons, the
HSA Dive Buddy Course offers able-bodied divers this opportunity to expand their
underwater world to include sharing it with a disabled partner.

An HSA certified Dive Buddy receives nearly as much information and skill training as
an instructor , except the training focuses on recreation, not instruction.

Our team of HSA Instructors teach this course periodically throughout the year,
based on the level of demand. Alternatively, we are able to tailor a course to suit
dive centres or clubs at a convenient time and location.
