The PADI Assistant Instructor (AI) course is the first step to becoming a full Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI).
The AI course runs over 4 to 5 days, or a number of evenings (the first section of the IDC), depending on the amount of candidates attending. The program includes academic, confined water and open water teaching sessions and takes you through the basics of becoming an instructor.
Courses run both in the UK and Sharm El Sheikh (please click on the 'Details' button for the dates below for location)
Qualifying as an AI allows you to progress on to the OWSI program and allows you to teach programs like the Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty, Project Aware and also gain valuable experience conducting certain portions of the Open Water Diver Course.
