  • Turn a hobby into a profession: get paid to do something you love – why not?!       

How Does It Work?

To become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI):

  • Complete a PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) and;
  • An Emergency First Response Instructor Course
  •  Pass the PADI Instructor Exam (IE).

The IDC is made up of 2 components: the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor program.

In the AI component you are taught how to teach, and it takes four to five days. After that, the OWSI program is a minimum of four days. It introduces you to the entire PADI System of diver education and concentrates on developing your abilities as a professional dive educator.

Most people do the full IDC. So, that means they complete both sections. You also complete the Emergency First Response Instructor.

You may just want or need to do one part of the IDC – just the Assistant Instructor, or just the Open Water Scuba Instructor part. That’s fine, just contact us for details on how we make this work for you.

Kat’s Story

To me, teaching people to scuba dive has always been something special and a great privilege. I take great pride in being able to share my passion with others and provide them with opportunities for life changing experiences by introducing them to the underwater world. I have had personally countless experiences of awe, beauty and amazement underwater. The heart warming feeling of introducing and sharing these experiences with other people is something only a passionate Dive Instructor can relate to.  Over many years of teaching Open Water, Advanced courses and Specialties, I commenced teaching Divemaster courses, which gave me a new aspect to Dive Instruction. Now I had an opportunity to teach others to start passing on their own passion for scuba diving and leading.

I thoroughly enjoyed each and every course and as a result realised the next step was professional training. Completing my Staff Instructors course I could now teach Divemasters to become Assistant Instructors and also help them prepare for the PADI Instructors exam. This was a new level of job satisfaction for me. My passion lies in all levels of diving, however becoming a PADI Course Director in 2014 has given me the opportunity to further contribute in enhancing peoples lives. The feeling that you get when you introduce people to our beautiful underwater world is so unique. At the end of the day you change peoples lives for the better, which is amazing.” – Kat Vcelka
