PADI Platinum Course Director SF Chong’s PADI assistant instructor (AI) course is a 5-day course designed to prepare PADI divemasters or equivalent to become PADI assistant instructor. This course begins the PADI instructor development process and is scheduled during the first 5 days of our instructor development course (IDC).
