Social skills are important, and necessary, to teach diving! Our Go PRO team are not expecting for you to be a social butterfly constantly, but being approachable is more favourable for both student and Instructor.

Mike Jones assists one of our PADI Instructors to conduct the PADI Discover Scuba Diving program at our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya Island, and is gaining valuable knowledge from observation.

Timmy has a very sociable and open personality, which many student divers respond to very well when learning a new skill. A friendly atmosphere will motivate most students to master skills and continue their dive education to develop their independence.

This principle applies to Go PRO internship candidates’ relationship with their mentor too. PADI IDC Staff Instructor Pablo evaluates Mike’s professionalism throughout his 1-month PADI Divemaster internship, and a candidates’ attitude determines their professionalism.
