You will be assigned a lead instructor who will mentor you during the course;  this personal touch is what makes all the difference!  You will be working with many other Barefoot instructors during your training, but the Lead Instructor is there to be your guide to becoming the best Divemaster possible.  This close working relationship often continues long after the course finishes.
