If you have a passion for scuba diving and want an extraordinary life - If you want to become a PADI Instructor. Teaching scuba diving allows you to share your love of the aquatic world with others while doing what you enjoy - being in, around and under water.

PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors and PADI Assistant Instructors are the most sought-after dive professionals around the world because they've completed the program that sets the standard for training dive professionals.

You earn a PADI Instructor rating through hard work and commitment, but you're rewarded with a job that lets you share incredible underwater adventures with others - transforming their lives for the better and enriching yours.

Are you ready to join the ranks of the dedicated professionals who teach the world's most progressive and popular scuba diver education programs? Then Go PRO with an Instructor Development Course.

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made up of two parts -

The Assistant Instructor (AI) course and The Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program.

Most dive professionals complete the entire IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification.

Successfully completing PADI Open Water Instructor Course results in qualifying you to attaend 2 days Instructor Examination (IE). once passing your IE, you earn PADI Instructor rating.

 

Who Can Enroll on the PADI OWSI?

PADI Assistant Instructor or Instructor member with a recognized recreational diver training organization for at least six months.

You also need:

  • At least 60 logged dives to start the OWSI Course and 100 dives to attend IE.

  • You also need to be an Emergency First Response Instructor, but you can earn this rating during your instructor training.

What Will You Learn?
