crossover program to switch

to PADI FROM OTHER DIVING ORGANIzATIONS 

Are you already a scuba diving instructor with another training organization and wish to become a PADI Instructor? Here is what PADI asks you to do before you can start teaching PADI courses:

  • Complete the OWSI portion of the IDC

  • Pass the PADI Instructor Examination

  • Show proof that you are qualified to teach CPR & First Aid

As we would like to provide you with the best available preparation, we offer you to participate in the entire IDC but only pay for the OWSI portion. This will give you some extra time to familiarize yourself with PADI's training philosophy, courses and teaching methods.

You are also welcome to join our 2-day IDC Preparation program, which you will find particularly useful if you have not been teaching for a while.

Please check our "Welcome Aboard" Package which is a special package for instructor from another organization such as SSI, NAUI, FEESSM, SDI...
