PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor

The PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor course (OWSI) is the second part of the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC). If you are already a PADI Assistant Instructor, or if you are already a scuba diving Instructor from a different dive agency, you can take just the PADI (OWSI) Program. After completion of the program you will be able to egiter to sit the PADI IE.

However at Kiwidiver we encourage you to consider joining us for the whole IDC at no extra cost if you have completed your AI or other agency Instructor qualification more than 6 months previously. This also enables you to take advantage of our unique FREE 3 day IDC Prep & Tec Explorer day

The PADI Instructor Exam (IE), is conducted indipendantly by PADI to ensure everyone comes up to the same level. Once you pass the 3 day examination you will become a PADI Instructor and be ready start teaching scuba diving.

As a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor you'll be able to teach all PADI courses from Discover Scuba & Open Water beginner courses all the the way through to the PADI Divemaster course.

On completion of you OWSI you will be able to attend the PADI IE (Instructor Examination) where PADI independently verify you are ready to teach people to dive the PADI way.
