If you enjoy interacting with people, have a passion for scuba diving, and desire an extraordinary life, consider becoming a PADI Instructor. Teaching scuba diving enables you to share your passion for the aquatic world while engaging in what you love—being in, around, and under water. PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors and PADI Assistant Instructors are highly sought-after worldwide because they have completed a program that sets the standard for professional dive training. Earning a PADI Instructor rating requires hard work and dedication, but it rewards you with a career that allows you to share remarkable underwater experiences with others, positively transforming their lives and enriching your own.

Are you prepared to join the ranks of dedicated professionals who teach the world’s most advanced and popular scuba diving education programs? If so, advance your career with a Go PROSM Instructor Development Course.

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) consists of two segments: the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program. Most dive professionals complete the full IDC and proceed to an Instructor Examination (IE), the final step to achieving a PADI Instructor certification.

Completing the AI course alone grants a PADI Assistant Instructor qualification. An AI can progress by participating in an OWSI program, which leads to an IE and the opportunity to obtain a full PADI Instructor rating.

Dive professionals with an instructor rating from another dive training organization might be eligible to directly enter the OWSI program, acknowledging their previous instructor training and offering a pathway to becoming a PADI Instructor.

  • A PADI Divemaster who has been a certified diver for six months is eligible to enroll in the PADI Instructor Development Course. Additional requirements include:
  • A minimum of 60 logged dives and 100 dives before attending an IE.
  • Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training completed within the last 24 months.

Need to Know

Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.

Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.

If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN).
