Diving Bali with Bali Scuba

PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor course (OWSI) is the second part of the PADI Instructor Course (IDC). If you are already a PADI Assistant Instructor, or if you are already a scuba diving Instructor from a different dive agency, you can take just the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor course (OWSI) in 10 days here in Bali, plus 3 days for the PADI Exam (IE), to become a PADI Instructor and start teaching scuba diving.
As a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) you'll be able to teach all PADI courses from Discover Scuba & Open Water beginner courses all the way through to the PADI Divemaster course.

Prerequisites and Course Content:

To enter the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor course you need to have PADI Assistant Instructor certification (or already be an Instructor with a different dive agency), be certified as an Emergency First Response Instructor, and have medical clearance to dive signed by a doctor within the last 12 months. You'll need to be at least 18 years old and have 100 or more dives and have been a certified diver for at least 6 months to begin the course. If you aren't an Emergency First Response Instructor yet you can take this during the OWSI for additional US$200 (usual price $300).
