Becoming a PADI Instructor can be one of the most rewarding experiences in diving. You get to share your enthusiasm for diving with others, helping them discover their own love of the underwater world. Plus, you gain professional skills that can be applied across various fields, such as business, community service, and education.
PADI’s Instructor Development Course (IDC) equips you with the latest instructional methods and materials to teach scuba in classrooms, pools, and open water settings. By taking this course, not only do you gain confidence in your teaching abilities, but you’ll also earn the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) rating as well.
The PADI Instructor training system will give you the knowledge, role-model watermanship, rescue abilities, as well as leadership qualities. After graduating, you’ll be prepared to teach all aspects of PADI diving programs and lead groups in various settings such as scuba schools or resorts.
