Assistant Instructor

This is the  leadership course that enables you to actively participate in teaching people how to SCUBA dive. Many SCUBA divers can recall the Assistant Instructor (AI) that taught them how to dive—a dive “super person.”Learn how to best help someone learn to SCUBA dive, and at the same time perfect your diving and teaching skills. As a PADI Assistant Instructor, you will be able to independently conduct many PADI programs or choose to go on to an Instructor Development Course. You will meet a lot of wonderful people, increase your interpersonal, communication and teaching skills and be left with a tremendous sense of satisfaction. AI or Divemaster certification is a prerequsite to becoming a SCUBA instructor.
