PADI ASSISTANT INSTRUCTOR

£395

Are you looking for something extraordinary? To do something others can only dream of? To help people transform their lives? To open doors you didn’t even know existed? All of this, and more, awaits you as a PADI Professional Instructor.

We offer a flexible approach to PADI Professional training, with a dedicated team of Instructor Development staff including our very own full-time PADI Course Director.

 

PADI Professional Instructor programs are flexible, allowing you to complete both the PADI Assistant Instructor & PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor programs independently as stand alone courses, or combined as a full PADI Instructor Development program (IDC).

As a PADI Assistant Instructor, you not only gain additional experience as a PADI Professional scuba diver, but you also start learning the PADI System of diver education. You can act as an instructional scuba assistant and assume limited teaching responsibilities. It’s a great way to gain experience in order to become a scuba instructor!

The PADI Assistant Instructor course is the first portion of the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) and when followed by the Open Water Scuba Instructor course (OWSI) and successful performance at the Instructor Examination (IE), leads to certification as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.
