Assistant Instructor

The Assistant Instructor (AI) Courses are specifically designed for PADI Divemasters or for those who have an equivalent qualification (DiveCon SSI, FEDAS Group Guide, etc.) and want to continue advancing within the PADI system. They develop the most important issues in the training of an Instructor, that is:

Theoretical instruction: how to teach theory
Teaching standards: Instruction in confined waters
Knowledge of all the exercises
What specialty courses can they give and how to give them all with a structured system and high practical application
