PADI Assistant Instructor Course – AI Course
The foundation of PADI Instructor Development is the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC). The program consists of two parts-the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program. Combining the AI course and OWSI program makes up the IDC.
Successfully completing an Assistant Instructor Course (AI) course allows instructor candidates to earn the PADI Assistant Instructor rating which authorizes them to function as instructional assistants and independently conduct a number of great PADI programs. AI course completion also qualifies candidates to participate in an OWSI program.
Candidates who are already certified as PADI AI’s are invited to do their IDC at the reduced OWSI price.

PADI Instructor Examination – IE
After completing all aspects of the IDC or the (OWSI) program, you are qualified to participate in the PADI Instructor Examination directly after your IDC with us . This two-day program and is conducted by PADI Staff, and not by your Course Director. This ensures impartiality and fairness during the testing process. When successful at the (IE), you will become certified as an PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.
The IE consists of four sections. To get certified as a PADI Instructor, candidates must be successful in all four areas. If a candidate is unsuccessful in one or two areas, then that candidate must attend another IE and complete only that area in which he was unsuccessful. For example, if a candidate was only unsuccessful in the Open Water portion of the exam, then he or she would only redo and pay for that part at a later IE. This saves you both time and money.
Your Course Director Andy Auer will go over the IE in great detail during the IDC here and ensures all your questions have been answered.
