Remember the feeling of breathing underwater for the first time? The freedom, the weightlessness, the smile on your face! Together with our partner PADI 5-Star IDC Centre, Pleasure Divers on Magnetic Island, we offer the chance to share that experience with other people. As a PADI Open Water Instructor you'll have the skills and knowledge to teach others to enjoy the underwater world as much as you do. PADI Instructors are highly sought-after globally and the job opportunities are endless.

The PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor course builds on the PADI Assistant Instructor course. It can be done as a separate course, after having been certified as an Assistant Instructor (AI), or more commonly, is combined with the AI course in our ten day Instructor Development Course (IDC).
