After living on the vessel for almost 18 months, he is the perfect instructor for a PADI Advanced Wreck Diver course . Furthermore, he will be attending the PADI Course Director training course in June. Afterwards, Wyatt will be joining Divers Direct’s PADI instructor development team to train entry level open water instructors. Jim is a licensed 100 ton captain and will work with the Ocean Divers and Emocean Sports crew in his 40th year as a PADI instructor.
