As a PADI Assistant Instructor, you not only gain that all-important experience as a PADI professional scuba diver, but you also start properly getting to grips with the PADI System of how to teach.

You can act as an Instructor’s assistant and even take on some teaching responsibilities yourself. It’s the best possible way to gain experience on your route to becoming a fully-fledged scuba instructor…

The PADI AI course is actually the first portion of the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) and when followed by the Open Water Scuba Instructor course (OWSI) and passing the Instructor Examination (IE) that follows, leads to certification as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.

The Cool Part

You get mentored while gaining hands-on experience actually teaching students!
