PADI Instructor Examination
Once you have completed the PADI Instructor Development Course you are ready to challenge the PADI Instructor Examination. This is an evaluation sponsored by PADI to be an independant judge of your teaching abilities and understanding of the PADI System of Education. Typically done over a two day period, day one is written testing followed by classroom presentations and pool presentation. The following day is spent with Open Water Presentation and an evaluation of the candidates rescue abilities. An intense weekend that opens the door and makes you a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.
