For me, the motivation to become an instructor was a mixture of the frustration associated with the limitations of being a DiveMaster and an Assistant Instructor, a natural progression that comes from developing one’s skills and the need to share the experience and passion that comes from diving, especially to those people who may struggle through physical or mental challenges. I still get the buzz from seeing a skill mastered or the wide-eyed wonderment of someone experience the delights of the underwater world for the first time. It is a privilege as well as a huge responsibility being an instructor, but I love it!
