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
The OWSI program is a minimum of four days. It introduces you to the entire PADI System of diver education and concentrates on further developing your abilities as a professional dive educator.
The IE is an evaluative two-day program conducted by one of the PADI Instructor Examiners. You’ll be asked to demonstrate your teaching ability, rescue ability and understanding of the PADI System and dive theory. The IE is pass-fail. PADI Instructor Examiners are highly trained professional PADI Course Directors who represent PADI’s international offices. Examiners may offer you helpful suggestions, but their primary job is to evaluate your performance. There’s no coaching at an IE, so you must go fully prepared. But no worries, the passing scores are the same as the IDC so you will be well prepared!
It’s about life transformations—both yours and those around you. The fun part of instructor training is interacting with course participants while creating friendships that continue long after the course concludes.For more info go to: IDC at Oceans 5 Dive resort, Gili Islands
