Just found this old email recommendation for Steve Prior, perhaps you should take Peter’s advice and live the dream?
Steve was my Course Director when i done my PADI IDC a few years ago, and I can truly say that he was an integral part in making my dreams come true. I made the decision a few weeks after becoming an Instructor to leave the UK and take up my dream job in Cyprus. Since becoming an Instructor it’s been a privilege teaching others to achieve their dreams also, and it really is a wonderful feeling. I have since taken my dream a step further and am know part owner of a Dive Centre.
The icing on the cake during my career so far, was during 2011, I was able to teach an enthusiastic student from non-diver to Divemaster, and had the privilege of doing my Staff Instructor Training while she done her IDC with Mr Steve Prior. Having the privilege of sitting in on an IDC and seeing it from a different perspective was not just fun but educational, and a great way to finish 2011. If you are reading this and considering becoming an Instructor, then live the dream. Peter
