About Steve Prior

About Steve Prior.
Steve has vast experience of teaching courses on communication, motivation and confidence building. During your PADI Instructor Development Course you’ll learn the very latest practices that modern corporations develop. People often tell me that they use these techniques in other areas of their lives.
Choosing your PADI IDC is a massive decision. You will want to be a great instructor and want to learn in a fun but challenging environment. You only become a PADI Instructor once in your life so make sure your PADI IDC experience is memorable for all of the right reasons.

His passion is psychology, and particularly in how people learn. This is what makes Steve unique. He follows his motto of “Don’t teach courses – teach People!” in every area of his work. With this in mind, you’ll find that Steve’s methods are not always the same as some others in the Dive Industry. He is adamant that people learn using their own learning style and that they have fun,


I’m still buzzing from the whole IDC/IE experience. It really was a life changing experience – I learnt things about myself, as well as how to go about teaching people.” Keith, Sheffield

The last two weeks will live in my memory for a very, very long time. I have had the good fortune in my working life of spending time with many of the most famous trainers/educators/consultants (whose books you have probably read) but you leave them all in the shade! It truly has been a privilege. You have inspired me to be the best insrtructor I can be. So once again, thank you” Tom, London
