Caribbean dive instructor candidates from St. Lucia, Antigua and Barbados will have the opportunity to further their training with Anse Chastanet Resort and Scuba St. Lucia.

The partnership between the popular resort and Scuba St. Lucia is aimed at enhancing tourism on the island and making diving a viable career opportunity for residents. The first instructor course was led by PADI Course Director Patrick Hammer and Georgiana Merlusca, Scuba St. Lucia’s manager. PADI Regional Manager Nick Buskirk acted as the examiner for the course.

According to Karolin Troubetzkoy, executive director of Anse Chastanet:

“By offering training opportunities to scuba diving professionals in the region, Scuba St. Lucia helps make the scuba diving industry a viable and attractive job proposition for Caribbean nationals, while simultaneously assisting St. Lucia and the Eastern Caribbean to gain traction as one of the world’s foremost diving destinations.”

After a very successful first course in 2018, Anse Chastanet and Scuba St. Lucia are planning on repeating the experience in 2019. The Instructor Development Course (IDC) will be starting on August 25, 2019, and the Instructor Exam (IE) will take place on September 3-4, 2019.
