Certify Your Instructors

PLEASE NOTE: We are revising the Dive Boat Programme and are not taking school or instructor applications for dive boat training at this time.  We will notify all schools when we have completed the revision and this page will be updated. 

However, if Dive Boat Schools wish to apply to teach IYT courses such as Small Powerboat & RIB Master, we will certainly accept and review these.

Instructor approval will be determined by evaluating each application on a case-by-case basis. However, the instructor:
