The PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) course is part two on the path to becoming a full PADI Instructor, with the first part being the PADI Assistant Instructor (AI) course.
To begin the PADI OWSI course you need to already be a certified PADI Assistant Instructor. PADI Divemasters who are looking to become Full PADI Instructors can complete both segments together on the PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course).
Most dive professionals complete the entire IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification.
