Florida Keys Dive Center offers PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors a full range of PADI Continuing Education Courses to make you more marketable. Although, life experiences are very important in the overall workings of a dive center or resort your ability to teach a wide array of student continuing education courses is paramount. In today’s dive business atmosphere the minimum usually accepted for employment of a newly certified PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor in a dive center or resort is PADI Emergency First Responder Instructor, PADI Enriched Air Instructor, and at least 3 or more PADI Instructor Specialty ratings. These specialties vary from region to region.
