PADI Instructor Development serves two purposes – to develop and refine both personal dive skills and leadership ability to an elevated level. PADI’s instructor development begins with learning how to be a PADI Assistant Instructor through the Instructor Development Course (IDC).

The IDC can include online independent study through PADI eLearning ® or live-delivery segments. The IDC may also be separated into an Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program. Most dive professionals complete the entire IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification.

Successfully completing just the AI course results in a PADI Assistant Instructor qualification. When an AI is ready to progress, attending an OWSI program allows entry into an IE to earn a full PADI Instructor rating.

What is the prerequisite?

  • Dive Leader certification — PADI Divemaster or leadership-level certification
    with a recognized recreational diver training organization* who is either:
