First Payment: $800.00 (this will get you the Instructor Crew Pack and e-Learning materials)

Balance $2000.00 is broken up into 4 payments of $500.00. Balance must be paid before the first day of class.

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made up of two parts – the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program. Most dive professionals complete the entire IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification.

Dive professionals who hold an instructor rating with another diver training organization may be eligible to enroll directly in the OWSI program. This recognizes prior instructor training and provides a path to become a PADI Instructor.

Once you have completed these programs you are ready for the Instructor Exam! Give us a call or stop by the shop if you have any further questions.
