ASSISTANT INSTRUCTOR Gain Additional Experience As A Padi Professional Scuba Diver

The PADI Assistant Instructor course with AQUATIC ADVENTURES

At AQUATIC ADVENTURES, as a PADI Assistant Instructor, you not only gain additional experience as a PADI Professional scuba diver, but you also start learning 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 in order to become a 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 AQUATIC ADVENTURES PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.

  • Open water workshops, rescue assessment and candidate presentations

The PADI Assistant Instructor Course consists of these sections:

  • Module 1: Academic Training

    • Developing Knowledge Development Presentations
    • Teaching Project AWARE and Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialties
    • Teaching in Confined Water

  • 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
  • Teach Project AWARE Specialty courses
  • Teach the AWARE Coral Reef Conservation specialty course
  • Conduct PADI Discover Scuba Diving experiences in a pool or confined water

At a glance, compare what you can teach when you continue your professional diver education.


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.


The Learning Materials You Need

The PADI IDC crewpak includes all the materials needed to prepare for a PADI Assistant Instructor or Open Water Scuba Instructor course. The 23-item pack includes:

  • Instructor cue cards for PADI’s core courses (OW, AOW, Rescue and Divemaster)
  • IDC Candidate Workbook and related reference materials,
  • Lesson planning slates for confined and open water
  • Quiz and exam booklets for the core courses
  • Specialty outlines for Project AWARE
