Assistant Instructor


The AI course is open to Divemasters and allows a person to assist in teaching. It also allows you to teach academic portions of PADI courses and evaluate students for some water skills. A valuable course for those intending to become instructors but are currently short on time.

The course builds on your abilities to organise and supervise dive activities while concentrating on developing teaching skills and teaching PADI programmes. It also familiarises you with the structure of the dive industry and provides basic marketing ideas, sales philosophy and legal and risk management techniques.
