OWSI – What does that mean?

What your PADI Pro rating allows you to do.

What your PADI Pro rating allows you to do.

After having completed the IE and graduated as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor I am sure some of you are wondering what I am allowed to do. I am allowed to teach ALL PADI Open Water Courses. From Bubblemaker up to Divemaster.

There are a few speciality courses that I am allowed to teach: Peak Performace Buoyancy, Project AWARE Specialist and AWARE – Coral Reef Conservation. The first one involves going for a couple of dives and working on buoyancy skills, the other two are classroom based but you can easily add on a couple of dives if you so wish.

The next step now is to learn how to teach some specialties – today I will start with Enriched Air Nitrox and O2 Provider, with the ultimate goal of becoming a Master Scuba Diver Trainer.
