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. Successfully completing just the AI course results in a PADI Assistant Instructor qualification. When an AI is ready to progress, attending an OWSI program allows entry into an IE to earn a full PADI Instructor rating. Dive professionals who hold an instructor rating with another diver training organization may be eligible to enroll directly in the OWSI program. This recognizes prior instructor training and provides a path to become a PADI Instructor. Requirements : A PADI Divemaster who has been a certified diver for six months may enroll in the PADI Instructor Development Course. You also need: • At least 60 logged dives and 100 dives to attend an IE. • Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. • A medical statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months You also need to be an Emergency First Response Instructor, but you can earn this rating during your instructor training. • Organizing a search and recovery project and a deep dive • Conducting a scuba review and skin diver course • Assisting with Discover Scuba Diving and leading Discover Local Diving programs.
