Padi is an acronym for PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors). Padi Instructor Training is a course that takes someone who has never dived before and turns them into a PADI instructor. This article will discuss the three steps to become a Padi Instructor.
1) Pass your Padi Open Water Diver course.
The first step in Padi Instructor Training is to pass your PADI Open Water Diver course. It is the entry-level scuba diving certification that allows you to go on dives under the supervision of a PADI professional.
2) Pass your Padi Advanced Course.
The second step is to pass Padi’s Advanced Course. This certification will allow you to go on dives unsupervised and with divers who have already completed their courses.
3) Pass your Padi Rescue Course.
The final step is to pass Padi’s Rescue Course. This course teaches you how to prevent and manage diving emergencies and what to do if one arises.
These courses will give you everything that you need to become a PADI-certified scuba diver!
