PADI Assistant Instructor

As a PADI Assistant Instructor, you not only gain additional experience as a PADI Professional Scuba Diver, but you also start learning the PADI system of diver education. You can act as an instructional scuba assistant and assume limited teaching responsibilities. It’s a great way to gain experience in order to become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.

What's involved?

The PADI Assistant Instructor course is the first portion of the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) and when followed by the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor course (OWSI) and successful performance at the PADI Instructor Examination (IE), leads to certification as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI). You build upon your abilities to organize and supervise scuba diving activities, while concentrating on developing teaching skills. You learn through:

  • Knowledge development through self-study, quizzes, lectures and presentations
  • Confined water skill review and assessment, workshops and presentations
  • Open water workshops, rescue assessment and candidate presentations

What does this qualification mean to me?

In addition to the responsibilities and duties you already have as a PADI Divemaster, as a PADI Assistant Instructor you can:

  • Teach academic presentations under the indirect supervision of a PADI Instructor
  • During confined water dives, present initial skills training under the direct supervision of a PADI Instructor
  • Evaluate Open Water Diver surface skills under the indirect supervision of a PADI Instructor
  • Teach PADI Specialty courses under the direction of a PADI Instructor.
