*** TAUGHT BY DIEGO SÁNCHEZ ( ONLY COURSE DIRECTOR PLATINUM OF SPAIN )
If you like people, you have a passion for scuba diving and you want an outstanding life- become a PADI Instructor. Learning how to dive allows you to share your love for the aquatic world with other members while you do what you enjoy- being in and underwater. The PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors and the PADI Assistant Instructors are the world’s most sought-after dive professionals because they have completed a program that establishes the standards for professional scuba diving trainers. You obtain the PADI Instructor qualification through hard work and a commitment, but you are rewarded with an occupation that allows you to share incredible adventures underwater with others- transforming their lives for improving them and enriching yours.
Are you prepared for joining the community of professionals dedicated to teaching the most popular formation scuba diving programs in the whole world? If so, Go PROSM is an Instructors Development course.
The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made of two parts- the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program. The majority of diving professionals complete the full IDC and then they assist in an Instructors Examination (IE), which is the final step for obtaining the certification of PADI Instructor.
Completing with success only an AI course leads to the PADI Assistant Instructor qualification. When an AI is prepared for progressing, assisting to an OWSI program allows you to participate in an IE for obtaining the PADI Instructor complete level.
The diving professionals that have an instructor level of other diving training organizations may be suitable for signing up directly in the OWSI program. This recognizes the previous instructor training and sets you on your way to becoming a PADI Instructor.

- To have at least 60 registered dives and 100 dives for assisting an IE.

In a minimum of seven days, the IDC will teach you to teach all the fundamental PADI courses. You could organize and present information, to teach sessions on knowledge development and controlling immersions in open waters. You will become a better public speaker and you will be good at demonstrating skills while observing the safety of student divers. The key topics include:

An Instructors Examination (IE) is an evaluative program of two days that examines the capacity of a candidate to be an instructor, the knowledge of diving’s theory, the skills level, the understanding of the PADI System, attitude, and professionalism. The PADI IEs are standardized and run by specially trained PADI Instructor Examiners. The location of the IE, the environment of the exam, and the evaluative sessions are organized to be as most objective as possible with the aim of evaluating fairly and consistent with the capacities of the candidates. Only those who meet the requirements of an IE execution obtain the respected certification of PADI Instructor. There’s a fee for assisting an IE.
