Instructor

Educate the next generation of passionate divers.

Assistant Instructor

The SDI Assistant Instructors (AI) course not only provides valuable preparation for the Open Water Scuba Instructor training, but also expands skills that enhance an AI’s professional capacity. During the course you’ll concentrate on developing an academic presentation style that allows you to effectively conduct classroom sessions for any SDI course.

What will SDI AI qualifications allow me to do?

Having a SDI Assistant Instructor on staff is desirable since you may conduct several SDI programmes independently, including but not limited to Altitude, Boat, Computer, Equipment, U/W Photo and the IDC with minimal guidance.

Pre-requisites

Include at least six months diving experience, certified as a SDI Divemaster or equivilant leadership level with another recreational diver training organization (note PADI Divemaster is not equivalent unless you hold specialty ratings in deep, night, navigation and limited visibilty). Submit a medical statement for diving conducted within the last twelve months and have logged 60 dives or 50 hours and 25 hours accumulated bottom time.

Although the Assistant Instructor qualification is not a pre-requisite to entering the SDI Instructor Development programme, we highly recommend it. AI candidates consistently show good results during Instructor Development and Instructor evaluations.

Getting started

As with the Divemaster programme, the Assistant Instructor programme offers two options in how you choose to do the course. The internship option is ideal for local residents; the 7 day scheduled course option is ideal for travelers.
