The Course

Training for the Deep Specialty Instructor certification begins with showing you new teaching techniques, as well as how to fine-tune your skills to be the best instructor you can be. During this course, you will be responsible for teaching divers how important it is to respect personal limits when it comes to deep diving. Throughout four deep dives, you show your students the effects of specialized deep diving equipment, how to properly plan a deep dive, buddy procedures, buoyancy control, how to manage gas supply, dealing with narcosis, and other safety considerations.


PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors are able to take this course. Some OWSI/IDC candidates may participate in this training, but can only apply for their certification after passing an IE. Instructors looking to take this course must have logged some deep dives, and a minimum of 10 dives must be completed as course exit requirement.
