Getting Started

Your adventure begins NOW!!
The first portion of the course is done online, through the PADI e-learning portal. This lets you study independently, at your own pace before arriving to Cozumel, saving valuable classroom time allowing for more time  practicing the skills that will make you stand out as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. 
While you are working on the 16 Knowledge Development sections, remember that we are just one text, call or e-mail away.

If  it’s been a while since you last had a comprehensive review of dive theory, you may want to do that first. The program is a straightforward review of dive physics, physiology, skills, equipment and environment, plus using the Recreational Dive Planner (RDP). By successfully completing Dive Theory Online, you can get credit for the dive theory exam requirement during your IDC.

Dive professionals who hold an instructor rating with another diver training organization may be eligible to enroll directly in the OWSI program. This recognizes prior instructor training and provides a path to become a PADI Instructor.
