New Course Director for Emperor Sharm

| No TrackBacks

Emperor Divers has invited a Platinum-rated Course Director to run their Instructor Development Courses at their Sharm El Sheikh dive centre in the Red Sea.

Steve Prior has been a PADI member for over 15 years and for the past seven has been teaching Instructor Development Courses. Steve has now reached the remarkable milestone of over 1700 instructor level certifications.

Together with his wife, PADI IDC Staff Instructor Janet, they have extensive teaching experience of the diving industry and use this experience to create a low stress learning environment, which helps people to learn more readily when not under pressure.

"Over the years, we have developed our very own unique 'Prior Knowledge' materials that we hand out to our Instructor candidates," said Steve. "The materials accelerate their learning and are very useful for instructors after the exams as well."

"Janet and I work well as a team and our satisfaction comes from being good at what we do. Dive centres find our enthusiasm for the sport is infectious and leaves candidates with a real feel-good factor," said Steve. Which is why dive centre owners want 'Steve Prior' trained instructors because they know they will get people with the right attitude.

Candidates can get ahead of the game with some special tricks to help them pass exams, such as "Easily pass a physics exam without a calculator" and "A foolproof way to tie knots". Simple ideas that make passing an Instructor Exam easy.

"Whilst we take our role as instructors seriously, we are always light-hearted and enthusiastic about our teaching," explained Janet.


To date, Steve had a 100% success rate on his most recent IDC in Sharm; in fact all of the candidates also became MSDT's at the same time. A great achievement for them and for the Emperor/Prior partnership.
