The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made up of two parts – the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program. Successfully completing just the AI course results in a PADI Assistant Instructor qualification. When an AI is ready to progress he can attend an OWSI program. This course will further expand your knowledge, developing skills in the classroom, confined water and open water and allows entry into an IE to earn a full PADI Instructor rating. Most dive professionals complete the entire IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification.
The OWSI (Open Water Scuba Instructor) program takes 5 days. But if you combine the two parts together it will take you 7 days.
