Teaching status PADI Course Directors may conduct IDCs and OWSI Programs.

The PADI Instructor Examination (IE) is the evaluation phase of the PADI Instructor Development process.

To be certified as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, an individual must successfully complete a PADI IE conducted by a PADI Instructor Examiner.
