UTD Foundational Instructor Development Course UTD's Foundational Instructor Devlopment course is the entry level instructor development course that prepares the candidate for his or her Instructorship within the UTD Educational System and get's them ready for evaluation by the UTD Training Advisory Board. Once completed and passed the evaluation the candidate becomes a full UTD Foundational Instructor* and can teach within the TAB recommendations. The UTD Foundational Instructor can then start to upgrade within the Foundational courses and move up into one or more upper level categories by taking the Technical, Trimix, Cave, Wreck, Rebreather, and Side-Mount Instructor Modules. Foundational IDC Prerequisites: The prerequisites to become a Foundational Instructor are Divemaster with any recognized training agency, proof of 200 non training dives and at least UTD IDC Prep / Rec / Tech or any other upper level UTD class. A full list of prerequisites can be found in the UTD Standards and Procedures. (http://www.utdscubadiving.com/page/standards/) For more information on becoming a UTD instructor. Click Here * A Foundational Instructor can teach UTD Zuba and Open Water courses, in addition to Essentials of Recreational, Essentials of Tech, Essentials of Overhead, Rec 1, 2, and/or specialties, Divemaster and/or other classes as designated by the UTD Training Advisory Board during evaluation. With the exception of Rec 2, the instructor must be certified one level higher than the classes he is certified to teach. If a Foundational Instructor wishes to teach Rec 3, he/she must meet the above criteria in addition to being certified at UTD Tech 1 or equivalent. Foundational Instructors without at least one year prior teaching experience with a recognized Scuba training agency may only teach non-critical skills classes for their first year unless certified as UTD Tech 2 or equivalent.

Event Reviews

From Peter Kubic 09 May 2015
By UTD ScubaDiving

Twelve years ago when I was under the training of AG, it completely changed my diving life, opened my eyes, showed me how things work in diving, taught me how I can make it easier, simpler, safer, fun and effective. We met again 2 months ago; we talked a lot about new trends in teaching diving, how it is developing and what is new. He told me about coming to IDC in Budapest; I could not let this opportunity go, because I immediately knew it will be greatly inspiring for me. I can completely confirm this; this week in Budapest was really great. It will move me one big step forward in teaching, it brought about new and exceptional experiences and gave me a lot of new information. I am proud to say, that Andrew and especially UTD bring the best new trends and methods to teaching, making it very effective for divers, safer and fun to make dives. I really appreciate and am thankful for this opportunity to spend and attend this week, it was incredibly inspiring. I am very happy about it, thankful for it, it was my pleasure to meet these nice guys; it was amazing! Thanks a lot!
