PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors and PADI Assistant Instructors are the most sought-after dive professionals around the world because they’ve completed the program that sets the standard for training dive professionals. You earn a PADI Instructor rating through hard work and commitment, but you’re rewarded with a job that lets you share incredible underwater adventures with others – transforming their lives for the better and enriching yours..
Empowering our new instructors
The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made up of two parts – the 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.
Training the best by the best
With our team of experienced IDC Staff Instructors and the islands only Padi Course Director Josh Childress, you will be receiving the best training to start you on your way as a PADI Professional. In the PADI Instructor internship, you will be exposed to all facets of our PADI dive center operations.
