Become a PADI Instructor

What’s Involved?

1.  If you’re ready to become a PADI Instructor, enroll in the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC). 

2.  During your IDC training, you’ll build upon your skills as a divemaster or certified assistant while also developing your public speaking and teaching skills. You will also hone your in-water skills to demonstration-ready levels, and learn how to properly evaluate in-water skills performed by student divers. 

3.  Upon successful completion of the IDC, you’ll attend a PADI Instructor Examination conducted by PADI Regional Headquarters staff. This is the final step towards earning your PADI Instructor certification. The Instructor Examination is unique to PADI and ensures all new PADI Instructors are prepared for real world teaching prior to certification.
