Are you thinking of becoming a Scuba Instructor, an Instructor Trainer or Course Director?
Becoming a dive professional is a serious step forward and often time-consuming, not even mentioning the costs involved! During the last 2 (COVID years, many instructors have chosen another path of life due to the complete and worldwide shutdown of the dive industry. Now, with the world open again, a large number of scuba positions are open worldwide, with not enough instructors to be found anywhere!
So, we want to help the scuba world and create an international training camp, all as affordable as possible. Combining the efforts of a NAUI training team and ScubaBiz.Help, we are setting up a complete Instructor Training Camp at Bonaire. This Caribbean island is centrally positioned and has the best training conditions you can ultra-clear waters, calm and predictable conditions!

need to go out and find an Instructor Examination (IE somewhere else! So this offer is really ALL-IN!

Teaching Specialty courses is NOT just about doing special diving; it is the opportunity to connect to your customers on different
levels and challenge them to experience and explore the area below the surface!

Due to the warm conditions in Bonaire, DRY SUIT will not be offered, but if you want to meet Bill in Canada later in the fall, this too can be completed!
