PADI Assistant Instructor

37 days to Belize, and now I get to look forward to advancing my diving career from DiveMaster to Assistant Instructor. There are a few people interested in learning how to dive on this trip, so I figure I can use the opportunity to get closer to becoming an Instructor. Kathy at Belize Diving Services is going to train, and hopefully certify, me and one of their staff. After Belize I can do the IDC test to become a full-blown Instructor, which is the level where you can teach beginners and make a little money if you wanted to work at diving.

I won't be able to certify up to that level. I'm pretty sure I will just be able to certify Open Water and Advanced Open Water. Probably not even Rescue Diver. Even after Instructor there are more levels, Master Scuba Diver Trainer and Master Instructor Diver. I would need to be one of those before I could certify DiveMasters.

Maybe some day, when I live on a tropical island again.

Oh. :(
Well if you get to that point, let me know and you can cert me in underwater beer drinking or something.. :)

I just had an idea for a surface to underwater beer bong. I should start my own diving certification.

I've given this some thought.
A device that clamps onto the top of a beer bottle. Uses the HP off of your stage-1 to drive a piece of metal through the cap to open it. Then regulates down to pump a steady trickle of air into the bottle. Maybe use a diaphram system like the stage-2 does to sense how much suction it needs to replace.
It would be big and bulky, but drinking a beer at 100ft would be worth it.
