Blue Horizons Dive Center Instructor Career Development Courses - Assistant Instructor at the premier Northeast scuba shop in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania metro area

Blue Horizons Dive Center


As a PADI Assistant Instructor, you gain additional experience as a PADI professional scuba diver, as well as learning the PADI system of diver education. You can act as an instructional scuba assistant and assume limited teaching responsibilities.

The Assistant Instructor (AI) course is the first portion of the Instructor Development Course (IDC). When followed by the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) course — and successful performance at the Instructor Examination (IE) — students become certified as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.

Scuba Tune-Up classes are conducted every first Saturday of each month. Call to schedule your class, today or send us an e-mail.


Are you a certified diver who hasn’t been able to get in the water enough —too much work, not enough play?

Join us on the first Saturday of each month (excludes December) for $10 Bubbles and a Beer. For $10, any certified diver can join us in the pool. Tank is included. Don’t have your own gear yet? For another $10 you will get an entire scuba kit to use.

Cylinder and weights are included with first $10.

Right after the event, we will head to one of the local watering holes/restaurants to grab a beer, some food & hang out. The restaurant will be a family-friendly establishment, welcoming those who can drink beer, as well as those who can only drink root beer. For those who want to drink beer, proper ID and legal age are required.

Come as often as you like; we would love to see you. Blowing bubbles is always a great time, even if it’s just in the pool. Please call to sign up so we know how many are coming.

Event costs include scuba-related activities, only.


Private dates are available for all courses — by appointment.
