Instructor Development Course

from 1500€

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made up of two parts:
the Assistant Instructor (AI) course
Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program.
Dive professionals complete the entire IDC and attend an Instructor Examination, 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 Instructor Examination to earn a full PADI Instructor rating.

A PADI Divemaster who has been a certified diver for six months may enroll in the PADI Instructor Development Course. You also need:

  • At least 60 logged dives and 100 dives to attend an IE.
  • Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months.
  • A medical statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months

You also need to be an Emergency First Response Instructor, but you can earn this rating during your instructor training.
