The PADI instructor program is an online program that teaches you how to become an instructor at your own pace. It is a premium program that sets the standard for scuba diving instructors. It consists of two parts which are the Open Water and Assistant Instructor programs.
Once you complete the program, you can take the examination to become certified. Please note that you must take both parts and pass the exam in order to get a full rating.
But before you can get certified, you must meet other requirements as well. First, you have to log in a certain number of dives. Secondly, you must have trained and passed CPR and First Aid. In addition, you must present a medical statement from your doctor.
