Year one Review of RfA Instructor Development

Rumble fish Adventure officially recognized as a PADI 5* IDC on 17th August 2010. As our first full year anniversary is approaching, we looked back at the successes of our interns and candidates who came to train with RfA at our new facility, and with the help of our partners at Scuba Junkie, Malaysia and Barefoot Scuba, India.

Recognizing our Candidates Success

We measure our successes on what our candidates do after their course, not on a passing percentage. Similar to the previous 5 years, many of Course Director Thien's former candidates can still be found working in the dive industry throughout Asia and the Americas. RfA graduates are found in the Maldives, Cambodia, the Philippines, California, Florida, the Red Sea, and beyond. Some are now PADI Course Directors. Many others are now owners of their dive businesses, and managers of dive centers and liveaboards.

Where are our 2010-2011 graduates today? We succeed when our candidates succeed. So today, you can find almost all of our past year graduates teaching throughout Asia Pacific. Our recent graduated instructors and divemasters can be found at:

'Stand out in the Crowded' Businesses of Diving

Why divers chose RfA for their PADI Pro training? It's probably because of our fair and honest business philosophy. They can count on us to do the right things for the clients and the environment, and to live by these policies:
  • We practice and support 'fair pricing practices.' We highly encourage all of our guests to shop our competitors.
  • We expect individual effort and creativeness during training under challenging real world conditions.
  • We are lovers of the sea, an 'ECO company' and encouraged our candidates to be as 'green a diver' as they can be.
  • Our Course Directors and Instructors are divers, not classroom lecturers! So our candidates actually learn to teach and supervise in the ocean, under real life dive conditions, not from power point presentation!
  • We don't work for free, so therefore our candidates are expected to be the same. There's no FREE education. So, don't expect to work for free in exchange for experience from us. If you teach for us, you get compensated!
  • Our divers safety and fun are our main priorities!
  • We have a "Price Match Guarantee," do let us know if you receive the same written offer at a lower price, we'll match it.
  • And finally, we educate our candidates 'the business of diving' in 'a real business', ours! Because we started where they were, as active dive instructors.

Final words

Hearty Congratulations to RfA 2010 and 2011 graduates. Thank you for the opportunities to meet and learn from you as much as you might have learned from us. We look forward to support all of our past candidates in anyway we can with their passion, and goals. Remember to keep diving green!
