PADI Rebreather Instructor and Instructor Trainer Programs

The excitement started before our Designated Instructor Trainers, Martin Robson and Vikki Batten, had even left the UK. Arriving at London Heathrow they discovered the new “PODs”  that transport you from the car park to the terminal are just as high tec as rebreathers and make kit transport a piece of cake! 

Poseidon hosted the event and early on the first morning Poseidon’s New Director of Sales for Asia Pacific, Holger Pfeilmaier, escorted Martin and Vikki by to the Poseidon factory. 

The facilities were excellent with a classroom right next to the pool and deep water test tank. The pool is every rebreather diver’s dream, not only is it deep enough for rebreather divers but looks really cool because it is lined in metal! 

James Roberton, Sverker Palmblad and Jorgen Nilsson welcomed all the participants  to Poseidon and kept an eye on us throughout to make sure we never wanted for anything.

Over the next two days, Martin and Vikki orientated our eager instructors and trainers to the new PADI courses and they in return showed us their rebreather skills and knowledge.

 Feedback from the course has shown our participants to be eager to start teaching their first courses so look out for a rebreather diver or instructor course near you! 

Now that PADI’s eagerly anticipated recreational rebreather courses are here you can be a part of this exciting new opportunity, just like the instructors and trainers who came along to the program in Gothenberg. For more information email vikki.batten@padi.com.
