Take the next step to PADI Assistant Instructor!
Not sure on becoming a full Dive Instructor or not enough time to follow the whole Instructor Course?
Start gaining experience as a PADI Professional by becoming an Assistant Instructor. While having already a certain amount of teaching responsibilities, you will still have the time to concentrate on developing your own teaching skills.
As a PADI Assistant Instructor you can teach dive theory, present initial skills during confined water dives, evaluate Open Water Diver surface skills, and many more under the supervision of a PADI Instructor.
This course is the first component of the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) and builds upon Divemaster training. The Assistant Instructor course is a 6 day program that introduces you to the role of an instructional assistant, both in academic teaching and in confined & open water training. After this program, you can enroll in the Open Water Scuba Instructor course (OWSI) for another 6 days. This is the second component of the PADI IDC at Oceans 5. After a successful performance at the Instructor Examination (IE), you will become certified as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.
