ASSISTANT INSTRUCTOR Gain Experience As A Padi Instructor

The PADI Assistant Instructor course with DIVEWORLD

At DIVEWORLD, as a PADI Assistant Instructor, you not only gain additional experience as a PADI Professional diver, but you also start learning to best utilise the PADI System of diver education. You can act as an instructional scuba assistant and assume limited teaching responsibilities. It’s a great way to gain experience on the road to becoming a full scuba instructor!

The PADI Assistant Instructor course is the first portion of the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) and when followed by the Open Water Scuba Instructor course (OWSI) and successful performance at the Instructor Examination (IE), leads to certification as a DIVEWORLD, PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.


The Fun Part

Being mentored while gaining hands-on experience teaching students.


What You Learn

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


What You Can Teach

In addition to the responsibilities and duties you already have as a PADI Divemaster, as a PADI Assistant Instructor you can:

  • Teach academic presentations under the indirect supervision of a PADI Instructor 
  • During confined water dives, present initial skills training under the direct  supervision of a PADI Instructor.
  • Evaluate Open Water Diver surface skills under the indirect supervision of a PADI Instructor 
  • Teach and certify  PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty Divers under the direction of a PADI Instructor

  • Conduct PADI Seal Team AquaMissions
  • Teach PADI Digital Underwater Photographer specialty courses under the direction of a PADI Instructor after earning the PADI Digital Underwater Photographer Specialty Instructor rating


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.
