PADI Assistant Instructor
Not sure if you want to become a full instructor, or not enough time for the full Instructor Development Course?
Most people attend to the full IDC to become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor after the Instructor Examination (IE), however it is your choice to divide your training into the first part, the PADI Assistant Instructor (AI) and follow up with the PADI OWSI program later.
The Assistant Instructor Course is a 6-day program, which can be conducted as the first half of an IDC or as a standalone course. This course introduces you to the role of an instructional assistant, both in academic teaching as well as confined and open water training. As a PADI Assistant Instructor you can gain experience teaching, under the supervision of a PADI Instructor, before committing to the full Instructor Development Course.
PADI Speciality Instructor Courses
Broaden your skills and enhance your employability with PADI Specialty Instructor courses. These courses teach Open Water Scuba Instructors how to promote, organise and conduct PADI Speciality Diver courses in a fun, safe and rewarding way.
Our Course Directors offer a wide range of PADI Instructor Specialities including Nitrox, Emergency O2 Provider, Deep, Wreck, Digital Underwater Photography, Fish ID, Sidemount, Dive against Debris and many more. Please select a location to see what specialities are available.
Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) Program
Kick start your career with our Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) Program. This program is a package of 5 Instructor Speciality Courses that can be taken straight after successful completion of the PADI IDC and IE. To qualify as a Master Scuba Diver Trainer, you will need to issue 25 PADI certifications of any level, which will be easy now you teach so many specialities!
