PADI Instructor Training

The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) consists of two separate but linked programs – the PADI Assistant Instructor (AI) Course and the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program.

The first part of the IDC is the AI Course, in which you gain an overview of the instructor development process, and are introduced to preparing and delivering presentations for confined water, knowledge development and open water teaching.

After completing the AI Course, you’ll be qualified to conduct several programs independently, and also serve as a more qualified instructional assistant in other programs.

Many of our candidates choose to tackle the AI Course and move straight into the OWSI Program. We structure our Instructor Development Courses to allow either approach, ensuring you are able to complete the overall program at your own pace.

Having completed the AI Course, you’re ready to move into the OWSI Program. Here, you’ll further refine your teaching skills, and learn how to apply those skills in the full range of programs that a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor can teach.

You’ll be introduced to topics on PADI standards and procedures, business aspects of diving, risk management and other areas that will assist in your preparation for becoming a professional dive instructor.

We schedule our PADI Instructor Development Courses over 9 days to give you the chance to learn at a comfortable pace, and to practice as much as possible.
