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 Open Water Scuba Instructor.

The Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program is the second of two distinct components of PADI's unique Instructor Development Course (IDC)—the core of PADI Instructor training. The first portion is the Assistant Instructor course followed by the Open Water Scuba Instructor program, they can be run as a single ongoing program.

The OWSI program is a minimum of four days. It introduces you to the entire PADI System of diver education and concentrates on further developing your abilities as a professional dive educator. Our professional courses at Diveworld are run on a bespoke basis. Each prospective Instructor has different requirements to develop into a rounded professional, our courses reflect this. We teach you not the course.                                                                                                         Click here to get in touch with one of our Instructor Development Team.

The Fun Part

It’s about life transformations—both yours and those around you.                                                            You will work closely with our dedicated pro-team to develop your skills as an instructor and ensure you have all the qualities required to become a successful PADI Professional. This is not about just passing exams, our course will prepare you for you future life as an PADI instructor.

The fun part of instructor training is interacting with other professionals while creating friendships that continue long after the course concludes.

You’ll begin networking with other professionals and can begin to explore PADI Pro Diving Jobs worldwide, or work within your local school. You’ll also have the opportunity to continue your professional education by participating in specialty instructor courses with our PADI Course Director, these train you to teach specialties after instructor certification.

The Challenging Part

The challenging part of this course is your personal commitment to the training. The course requires you to complete online self-study  before the course begins and to prepare daily assignments for teaching presentations. Organisation and dedication are key. As ever, PADI Digital materials will guide you through ready for starting your development work with our dive team.

What You Learn

During the course you’ll learn how to apply the PADI System of Education to theory presentations, confined water presentations and open water teaching presentations.

The Scuba Gear You Use

You will need to equip yourself with all the basic scuba gear ( as listed in General Standards & Procedures) of a dive professional. We can help if you do not have the full range of equipment.
