BECOME AN IANTD
DIVE PROFESSIONAL...


IANTD standards of education, safety and professionalism set us apart from other agencies. By qualifying as an IANTD instructor, you join a small team of dedicated, high quality technical instructors, proud to train divers to the highest standards.

Whatever your training background, Vobster Quay can help you turn your diving dreams into a career reality. As the UK HQ of IANTD, our team of IANTD instructors and instructor trainers can guide you through every step of the way.


Introducing IANTD...




Whatever you want to do, IANTD can get you there. Our diver training programs offer a means of diving more safely and in more environments - whatever your level and interests...

The International Association of Nitrox and Technical Divers has been at the cutting edge of diver training for more than 30 years. From the first nitrox course in the world to our Tek Lite programs which allow for reduced narcosis in the entry-level tech depth range, through to CCR Cave and Expedition Trimix, we've been setting the standard since the very beginning.

We offer a complete range of training courses from Open Water Diver through to Expedition Trimix using both open and closed circuit equipment and a full range of cave diver training programs. Our instructor trainers and instructors represent some of the very best technical divers and educators in the UK and across the world.

IANTD PREREQUISITES

All IANTD Instructor ratings have these prerequisites...
  • Pass a rigorous watermanship evaluation
  • Current First Aid with AED + CPR rating
  • Current Oxygen Administration rating
  • Rescue Diver certification
  • Qualified as a Sport Diving Instructor in active teaching status with an accredited Scuba training agency
  • Qualified as a diver at the level you wish to teach
  • Meet minimum experience requirements at the level you wish to teach
  • Meet minimum age requirements at the level you wish to teach
IANTD Instructors all share one thing in common - a genuine passion for all-things diving. If you live and breathe diving and have an unstoppable drive to share that passion with others, IANTD wants to hear from you...

Becoming an IANTD Instructor offers a privileged opportunity to pass on your knowledge, experience and dive skills to the divers of tomorrow. With an IANTD Instructor Trainer as your mentor, IANTD Instructor courses are designed to develop and enhance your diving skills, teaching and supervisory skills in a controlled and structured manner.

Each IANTD Instructor level consists of an instructor evaluation course where you'll work alongside an IANTD Instructor Trainer to develop the tools and know-how to successfully deliver IANTD training at that level. For new IANTD Technical Instructors, you'll start at the 'tech lite' level teaching the IANTD Recreational Trimix and Advanced Recreational Trimix programs.

All IANTD instructor candidates are required to pass a rigorous watermanship evaluation - we take fitness seriously when we have responsibility for others. Our instructors are all fit enough to perform at a high level AND rescue others.

If you are already an experienced technical instructor, contact us for options and routes to join IANTD's team of professionals.
