Would you open the door you didn’t even know existed? All of this, and more, awaits you if you become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI).

What's involved?

The OWSI program lasts for a minimum of four days. It introduces you to the entire PADI System of diver education and concentrates on further developing your abilities as a professional dive educator. The challenging part of this course is your personal commitment to the training. The OWSI-course requires you to complete all the self-study Knowledge Reviews before the course begins and to prepare daily assignments for teaching presentations. Organization and dedication are the key.

During the OWSI-course you’ll learn how to apply the PADI System of Education by presenting at least

  • Two confined water teaching presentations
  • Two presentations on expanding knowledge
  • One open water teaching presentation integrating two skills .

How can I benefit from this qualification?
