The PADI Assistant Instructor course (AI) is 4-5 days long. This course doesn’t have to be taken together with the PADI IDC, and can be taken at any time during the year
The things you taught me last year during my DM/AI internship proved very valuable indeed. Especially the practical experience I got working in a real environment and with real students. This was a great asset during the IDC. Thank you for giving me such a solid foundation for my professional diving career!Marnix Arnold, Dec 2008
Qualifying as an AI allows you to progress on to the OWSI program and allows you to teach programs like the Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty, Project Aware and also conduct certain portions of the Open Water Diver Course.

Many dive operations use the term ‘Internships’ loosely, and it may have different meanings from one center to another.
In some operations, internships are offered where the dive center provides the courses for free and then the candidates will work for free in order to pay back the cost of the course. It seems like a great deal to the students, but in reality the students do not get as much benefit or attention as they should. Some examples of such instructor experiences:
We do not this type of internship at Two Fish Divers for several good reasons. In our opinion, the Instructor course is a professional level in diving. Instructors should be treated with respect as future professional dive leaders, this is why it’s even more important that they are part of a professional organized Instructor Internship programme focused on their candidates and their training. This helps to shape future dive leaders as well as instructors.
At Two Fish Divers we try and achieve this with all our Instructor Internships. We do not offer “work off free courses”, but our Instructor Internship / IDC Platinum Package offers the candidates an opportunity to gain teaching experience under supervision and with professional guidance after their IDC.
The IDC Staff Instructor course is run over 12 days, and is conducted in conjunction with every IDC program
Marlies has been diving for more than 20 years, has been a PADI Course Director for more than 3 years and has been involved in training over 700 Instructor-level candidates. Her passion for diving itself, teaching people, the underwater world – and specially preserving it – has never faded.
