BSAC has released the Twin-set Instructor workshop (TIW), specifically created to make progressing to a Twin-set Instructor much more accessible.
The one-day ‘streamlined’ workshop aims to get more instructors actively teaching the BSAC Twin-set Diver course within their club or the regions. The new workshop will be led by experienced Instructor Trainers (ITs) and is intended as an alternative to the current route which requires instructors to assist twice on Twin-set Diver courses.
One-day pilots of the workshop have already been held, attracting positive feedback from all the participants. As a result, the Twin-set Instructor workshop is now live on BSAC’s centrally coordinated Programme of Events.
More dates are in the process of being scheduled for later in the year, so please check back regularly.
BSAC’s Head of Diving and Training, Dom Robinson, said the one-day workshop was a positive step forward in making the route to a Twin-set Instructor more efficient and accessible.
Learning to dive with a twin-set is an aspiration for many BSAC divers so we need to provide a better route for experienced twin-set divers to pass on their knowledge. With this Instructor Trainer-led workshop, we will increase the number of high-quality Twin-set Instructors able to teach within BSAC’s club network and bring on the next wave of BSAC Twin-set Divers.
To attend the new one-day Twin-set Instructor Workshop, divers must be a BSAC Open Water Instructor (or other agency equivalent) and hold the BSAC Twin-set Diver (or equivalent) qualification. Once approved, instructors can teach the BSAC Twin-set Diver course using the same kit configuration as their students.
