PADI Open water Scuba Instructor Course (4 days).
The PADI OWSI Course is the core of the PADI Instructor training process. The course will prepare you to function as an effective PADI Instructor by familiarizing you with the PADI system and all its diver training programmes. You will use your current skills and knowledge while learning how to conduct classroom, pool and open water teaching sessions. Successful completion of the IDC will prepare you to easily pass the Instructor Examination, albeit this is not the focus of the course. Our programme is specifically designed to arm you with the basic skills and knowledge you will need to begin your career as a scuba Instructor. Please note that the OWSI processing fee is not included in the OWSI course fee and must be paid to PADI. Please see our prices page for the current PADI OWSI application processing fee.
