The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) consists of two sub- courses; the PADI Assistant Instructor (AI) Course and the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) Program. The first part of the PADI IDC is the AI Course, in which you develop instructional skills for knowledge development, confined water and open water. Completing the AI Course will qualify you to conduct certain programs independently, and be a more qualified assistant in others. Next, you’ll move onto the OWSI Program. You’ll further refine your teaching skills, and apply them across the full range of programs that a PADI OWSI can conduct. You’ll also be introduced to topics on PADI standards and procedures, the business of diving, risk management and other areas that will assist you to become a professional dive instructor.
