Author Dan Robinson

Dan runs PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor, Instructor Development Courses, IDC Staff Instructor Courses, Master SCUBA Diver Trainer programmes, Speciality Instructor Training Courses and DSAT TecRec technical diving instructor courses in Indonesia, Maldives, New Zealand, Philippines, Spain, Sri Lanka, Thailand and the United Kingdom. He will do all he can to help you be successful, starting from first contact and continuing throughout your dive career. Dan is an approachable and personable dive educator. As a PADI CD, Dan’s main goal is not simply to train you to pass your Instructor Examination. He does have a 100 per cent. first-time pass rate at the IE, but that is largely due to his focus on real-World teaching applications. Dan wants you to teach after your IE and will do his best to equip you for this. However, all PADI Open Water SCUBA Instructors and higher have passed an IE.
