Become a PADI Instructor
What to expect on the PADI Instructor Development Course
The focus of these programmes is on development and learning by making mistakes and being corrected. We learn best by making mistakes, then receiving the necessary feedback to help us improve.
You are expected to have good diving theory skills as this does not form part of the course, you will have covered these subjects in your Divemaster Course or similar course from another diving organisation.
If you are already a PADI Assistant Instructor you need only complete the OWSI part of the PADI IDC, however it is strongly recommended that you attend the entire Instructor Course, to familiarise yourself with any changes that PADI may make.
