PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty Instructor

To truly explore and do so safely, understanding the use of a compass in a buddy team is crucial.

If a dive is planned to navigate to a point of interest on a reef, a shipwreck for example, the dive is more enjoyable if most of the dive time could be spent there.

The PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty Instructor aims to build a student divers’ previous training in underwater navigation by conducting more challenging skills.

Navigation allows a diver to conserve air, maximize time for underwater tasks, avoiding long surface swims and confusion; an instructor is expected to possess the ability to provide a dive plan with these qualities.

During your PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty Instructor course, your training will demonstrate how to introduce advanced navigational skills to your student diver; you will conduct dives and act in an instructional role. Navigation needs planning, so your level of control and supervision will be assessed. When briefing skills, underwater communication is also important to avoid any problems; you will be taught how to teach the course effectively.

Knowledge development is a component of the course, which needs to be completed, so that you may understand and explain the information to your students.

Candidates must be PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors to be qualified as PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty Instructors.
