An Open Water Scuba Instructor or OWSI is qualified to teach all of the core PADI recreational dive courses. An OWSI can conduct DSDs and teach the whole range of courses from Open Water all the way to Divemaster.

During the Instructor Development Course (IDC) you will learn to organize and present information, conduct skill development sessions and control open water dives.


topics include

  • PADI Standards and Procedures for courses you can teach with in water workshops
  • Learning, Instruction and the PADI System
  • Risk Management and Diver Safety

  • Marketing Diving and Sales Counseling

Become an OWSI

The course takes 15 days to complete and we have 1 course each month.

We can organise for you to do some fun dives or even assist as a Divemaster on a few recreational courses before the IDC. In other words we can tailor the course to your requirements and experience.

" Great People, Good Training, Worth the money. I went to BV to complete OWD and AOW. They are one of the oldest dive shops in Ko Tao. And they did not disappoint. The instructors are very professional and take time to explain things clearly. "
