PADI Instructor Examination Fee (IE)
Course Cost $599 (Paid to PADI) (2016 prices not released)
PADI Headquarters host a two-day evaluative program that tests an instructor candidate’s teaching ability dive theory knowledge, skill level, understanding of the PADI System, and attitude and professionalism. PADI IEs are standardized and conducted by specially trained PADI Instructor Examiners.
The IE location, testing environment and examination sessions are organized to be as objective as possible to fairly and consistently evaluate a candidate’s abilities. Only those who meet the IE performance requirements earn the respected PADI Instructor certification. Successfully completing an IDC is a prerequisite to attending.
We schedule our Instructor Development Programs to coincide with a local or regional IE.
