PADI Platinum Course Director 's PADI assistant instructor (AI) course is a 5-day course designed to prepare PADI divemasters or equivalent to become PADI assistant instructor. This course begins the PADI instructor development process and is scheduled during the first 4 days of our instructor development course (IDC). The PADI assistant instructor rating authorizes you to function as an instructional assistant and independently conduct certain PADI programs. Successful completion of the AI course also qualifies you to participate in the open water scuba instructor (OWSI) program in Bali!
Combination of AI course and the OWSI program into a continuous program makes up the entire PADI IDC.
Chong's unique 2-day free IDC pre-study and preparation workshop is also available to our PADI assistant instructor candidates. In fact this is the ideal way to go for those wanting to be well prepared instructors with greater chance of success at the IE.
