How Do We Make Exceptional Assistant Instructors?

Training Philosophy

Assistant Instructors are taught the same methodology of teaching that is used all the way to the highest level of instructors. While Assistant Instructors may not conduct a full Open Water course on their own, they do participate heavily in the development of new divers. Assistant Instructors also independently conduct youth programs such as Scuba Rangers LINK HERE and help divers refresh their dive skills during a Scuba Skills Update.


The Assistant Instructor course is usually conducted in 3 weekends and a few weeknights in the classroom.

Knowledge Development

You will build your knowledge of course standards and teaching techniques through independent study of your digital student materials. Then you will participate in a series of classroom sessions to review these ideas and discuss how to utilize these tools effectively.

Skill Development

You will participate in workshops to improve your core dive skills, rescue skills, and group control skills in a class setting. You will learn how to brief, demonstrate, troubleshoot, and debrief core diver skills.
