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.

Son altı ay içince sertifikalı dalgıç olan bir PADI Divemaster, PADI Eğitmen Geliştirme Kursuna kayıt olabilir. Ayrıca aşağıdaki kriterlere uygun olmanız gerekecektir:

  • Minimum 60 kayıtlı dalış ve 100 kayıtlı dalışı olması ¨IE¨ Eğitmen Eğitimi için
  • Son 24 ay içinde CPR ve İlk yardım kursu almış olması
  • medical statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months

Diving Instructor who holding an instructor rating from another diver training organization may be eligible to enroll into IDC or directly in the OWSI program. This recognizes prior instructor training and provides a path to become a PADI Instructor.

You also need to be an Emergency First Response Instructor in order to get your PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor status, but you will earn this rating during your instructor training with us.
