ASSISTANT INSTRUCTOR PADI Professional

PADI Pro Assistant Instructor Course

Are you looking to do something others can only dream of? To help people transform their lives? To open doors you didn’t even know existed? All of this, and more, awaits you as a PADI Assistant Instructor.

The Course

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.

You’ll begin networking with other professionals and begin to explore PADI Pro Diving Jobs worldwide. You’ll also have the opportunity to continue your professional education by participating in specialty instructor courses, which train you to teach specialties after instructor certification.

The challenging part of this course is your personal commitment to the training. The course requires you to complete all the self-study Knowledge Reviews before the course begins and to prepare daily assignments for teaching presentations. Organisation and dedication are key.

What You Learn

You will build upon your abilities to organise and supervise scuba diving activities, while concentrating on developing teaching skills. You learn through:

  • Knowledge development through self-study, quizzes, lectures and presentations
  • Confined water skill review and assessment, workshops and presentations
  • Open water workshops, rescue assessment and candidate presentations

The PADI Assistant Instructor Course consists of these sections:

  • Module 1: Academic Training
    • PADI Discover Scuba Diving and Snorkeling Programs
    • Developing Knowledge Development Presentations
    • Teaching Project AWARE and Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialties
    • Teaching in Confined Water

  • Module 2: Independent Study
    • Knowledge Development
  • Module 3: Practical Application
    • Confined Water and Open Water Teaching Presentations
    • Standards Exam
    • Dive Rescue Skills Assessment

The Scuba Gear You Use

  • You use all the basic scuba equipment and some scuba accessories such as a dive slate, dive knife, compass, dive watch, etc.
  • It is highly recommended that you own all of your own scuba equipment, as familiarity with personal gear improves general scuba diving skills.
