The Instructor Development course is split into two main parts- the Assistant Instructor (AI) and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) most people complete both parts during the Instructor Development Course (IDC) which combines the two parts together. This is the most efficient and effective way to work towards becoming a PADI Instructor. After successful completion of the IDC you can enrol in the Instructor Exam (IE) and after successful completion of the two day exam, conducted by a PADI Staff member, you will now be a PADI Open Water Instructor.
To enrol in the PADI IDC you must be a PADI Divemaster, and have been a certified diver for at least six months. You will also need;
• 60 logged dive to start the IDC and 100 logged dive to attend the IE
• CPR & First aid training within the past 24 months
• A dive medical, signed within 12 month by a Physician. stating you are medically fit for diving
Although not needed to complete the IDC, you will need to become an Emergency First Responder Instructor before receiving your PADI Instructor rating; you can easily earn this during your IDC if necessary.
