COURSE STRUCTURE

FOR OUR LIVEABOARD CRUISE DIRECTOR PROGRAM

TRIP 1

During the first trip the candidate will “shadow” the Cruise Director to gain an insight into the work involved in planning and leading a dive safari.

This will include but is not limited to:-

PAPERWORK, 
DIVE AND SAFETY BRIEFINGS 
DAILY SCHEDULE AND ITINERARY PLANNING

The candidate will be diving together with each of the dive staff in order to learn the dive sites and gain a general idea of the aquatic life of the region. The candidate will learn specific dive techniques (drift diving, use of reef hooks, macro diving, free negative descents, diving with photographers) as required by the local environment. 

TRIP 2

During the second trip the Cruise Director will delegate some of his responsibilities to the candidate and give guidance for the leadership role on board.

Topics covered during this trip will be:-

DIVE BRIEFING
GUEST AND BOAT PAPERWORK
BOAT ACCOUNTS AND INVENTORY

In conjunction with the Cruise Director and Captain the candidate will plan the route and the daily dive activities. 

The candidate will be also given an introduction to recreational rebreather diving, using the 
Poseidon MKVI. This could be either in theory or, if the time and schedule allows, as a try dive. 

The candidate will learn the use of the oxygen booster pump and the specific accounts relating to 
the use of Siren Fleet re-breathers.

TRIP 3

The candidate will act as Cruise Director with the Worldwide Dive and Sail Cruise Director taking a supervisory role. This trip is the final assessment for the candidate and he/she will be required to plan the route and dive program independently of the Cruise Director, submitting his/her schedules to the Cruise Director for approval.

The candidate will conduct the majority of the social and dive briefings for the duration of the trip, along with organising the dive groups and co-ordinating with the other dive staff and deck crew. Non-diving activities (kayaking, water ski, dragon walk, beach visit) should also be 
scheduled at appropriate times or dependent on guest requirements.
