PADI IE-INSTRUCTOR EXAMINATION

To complete your Instructor training you need to be tested after you complete your IDC, You will only be allowed to
take these exams once you r IDC has been passed successfully, these tests or examinations are needed so that you can certify
as an OWSI. The exam is a right of passage for PADI Instructors and is known as the Instructor Examination (IE).

The purpose of the IE is to evaluate your knowledge and skills in order to make sure they are sufficient to earn a
PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certification. It is an evaluation program that tests your teaching ability, dive theory knowledge,
water-skills, understanding of the PADI System and attitude and professionalism. The IE is a standardized evaluation conducted by
Instructor Examiners who work for the various PADI Offices.

The IE is run by professional PADI Instructor Examiners from the local PADI Regional Headquarters, which goes a long way to
ensure that your Instructor assessments are correct and without bias.

You will be tested both on your dive theory and knowledge as well as your personal dive skills and teaching presentations and these
will occur in a classroom type environment, additionally these exams take place in both confined (pool) and
open water (normally the beach if local dive conditions allow) environments.
Confined water environments for the PADI IE is normally restricted to swimming pools to aid administration and logistics.

To pass the IE and to get certified as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor you have to successfully meet the standards
in every section of the Instructor Examination or IE. If you fail at your first attempt at the IE you will be permitted to take a second IE.
Your second IE is not allowed to be taken within 5 days of the first and if you wait longer than 1 year after the first one you will need
