PADI Assistant Instructor
(AI) Training Semporna Sabah Borneo Malaysia
PADI Assistant Instructor (AI) course is a 5-day course designed
to prepare PADI Divemasters or equivalent to become PADI Assistant
Instructor. This course begins the PADI Instructor Development process and
is scheduled during the first 4 days of our Instructor Development Course
(IDC). The PADI Assistant Instructor rating authorizes you to function as an
instructional assistant and independently conduct certain PADI programs.
Successful completion of the AI course also qualifies you to participate in
the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program
Combination of AI course and the OWSI program into a continuous program
makes up the entire IDC.
2-day free IDC Pre-Study and Preparation Workshop is also available to our
PADI Assistant Instructor candidates. In fact this is the ideal way to go
for those wanting to be well prepared Instructors with greater chance of
success at the IE.
You have several training options and flexibility for reaching your
professional goals depending on your current certification level, experience
level, time restraints, etc. Options include:
PADI Divemaster may choose just to attend the AI course forst and later on
after gaining more experience go on to complete the OWSI program
PADI Divemaster may attend the full IDC and, upon successful completion, go
on to the IE (as long as all other IE prerequisites are met).
