How does it work and where do you start?

Even if you have never dived before, getting to Instructor level will take you around 7 months – which is far quicker than re-training for any other career.

Your first certification is the PADI Open Water Diver course, followed by the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course, and then the PADI Rescue Diver course and Emergency First Response course. At this level you are ready to enter the course for your first professional level – that of PADI Divemaster.

Following completion of the PADI Divemaster course you can enter the Instructor Development Course (IDC) this culminates with an Instructor Exam (IE), which when you pass, certifies you as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. If you are short on time or cash or just want to get more experience before committing to the IDC then you can become a PADI Assistant Instructor.
