Why become a PADI Assistant Instructor?

Perhaps you are already a Divemaster but don’t have the time to take the full IDC? Instead you can take the 5-day PADI Assistant Instructor (AI) course. The AI course is the first part of the IDC and costs IDR 10,400,000 taken during the first 5 days of the IDC or IDR 11,700,000 if taken outside of our scheduled IDC dates. You can take the OWSI (click here for OWSI details) to become a full PADI Instructor whenever you have the time and you can either do it with us here at Bali Scuba or at any other PADI IDC Center in the world! The Assistant Instructor program not only breaks up the IDC for you, it will provide you with an invaluable insight as to how the OWSI program will run should you decide to take it at a later date – plus you’ll have a lot of fun and make some lifelong friends!


What can a PADI Assistant Instructor teach?
With your PADI Assistant Instructor rating you’ll be able to start teaching and certifying Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty Divers under the direction of an instructor. This is a great way to get hands on real-life teaching experience before committing to the OWSI program. You’ll also be able to conduct the surface skill evaluations during the Open Water Diver course under an Instructors indirect supervision.

And that’s not all – independently you’ll be able to teach the Project AWARE (nondiving) Specialty course, the AWARE – Coral Reef Conservation Specialty Course, you’ll be able to conduct Discover Scuba Diving in a pool or confined water AND teach Bubblemaker programs – all without supervision.


Prices exclude PADI materials and PADI fees (contact us for current prices).

  • I really enjoyed my experience in the IDC. Chong has a wealth of knowledge and experience and I learned a great deal from him although I myself have quite a bit of experience already. Please extend my gratitude to Chong and all the staff in Bali Scuba for making it such a memorable and valuable experience.
