The Erickson Foundation has announced that after teaming up with Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas, five new dive instructors have qualified after completing a PADI Instructor Development Course.
The foundation provides funding for candidates to successfully complete their IDC. Historically, Stuart Cove has absorbed the cost of putting a candidate through the program, so teaming up with the Erickson Foundation is a great help to making the dreams of some instructor candidates come true.
The foundation does not give out direct grants to instructor candidates, but instead approves a program, and then selects candidates on a case-by-case basis.
The foundation will be running to programs in 2019, with the first in June in the Bahamas, and the second in October in St. Vincent.
