Dear Instructor Development Candidate,

Congratulations and Welcome! You have made the right decision to join the best profession in the world, being a PADI Scuba Instructor!  As an instructor, you may have the opportunity to travel around the world and work in exotic locations.  No other group of instructors has enjoyed as much success as PADI Instructors!  PADI Instructors are in demand!

As an instructor, you may have the possibility to work for any one of 4600 PADI Dive Centers or Resorts around the world.  At any given time, there are more requests for PADI Instructors than there are Instructors available to fill them.  The PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor is diving’s most sought after instructor rating and your first step towards a career as a diving educator.  You have already started down the path when you completed your PADI Rescue Diver and Divemaster courses.

PADI, the world’s largest diver training organization, offers the finest instructor training programs available.  The PADI Instructor course provides a professional learning experience in which you will learn how to teach diving utilizing the most successful program in existence, the PADI System of Diver Education.  Not only will you learn how to teach in the classroom, pool and open water environments, you will also learn how to effectively use PADI’s instructional support materials.

Our PADI Instructor course is much more efficient than non-PADI instructor training courses, thanks to our stress-free atmosphere.  We emphasis knowledge and skill development and as a result, you can relax and learn, knowing that mistakes are part of the learning process.  You will not have a lot of extra time on your hands, so you should plan to devote yourself entirely to the course.  Avoid scheduling anything, which might compete with your time during the program.

When you complete the PADI Instructor course, you are prepared to attend the PADI Instructor Examination, the next step toward your PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor Certification.  You will also be equipped with an excellent understanding of the diving industry, marketing and promotional techniques, progressive instructional methods and state of the art diving information.  We pride ourselves on having a 100% SUCCESS RATE at the I.E.’s.  All our candidates have passed with above average marks.  We have been in the Instructor Training business since 1988 and have taught or assisted with the teaching IDC candidates who are now very successful in the diving industry!
