									The Instructor Development Training Process

The Instructor Development process is a combination of programs designed to
enhance Instructor Candidates abilities as Dive professionals, as well as offer
specialised training programs, all of which are intended to increase your success as a
dive professional.

The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) consists of 2 training phases, the
Assistant Instructor Program (AI) and the Open Water Scuba Instructor Program
(OWSI). The IDC is then followed by a 2 day Instructor Examination (IE) program
conducted by PADI Worldwide.

The IDC emphasises development, not testing. Candidates can relax and concentrate
on skill development knowing that making mistakes is part of the learning process.
You will be assessed on your readiness to attend an IE during the IDC by means of
feedback during individual counselling sessions.
