The Professional Scuba Association International’s Divemaster & Assistant Instructor Program is to provide training for individuals who wish to supervise PSAI Sport Divers. Should this supervision be for a Sport Diving Specialty course or dive, the Divemaster-Assistant Instructor must be certified in the particular specialty(ies) and have logged sufficient dives.

PSAI Divemaster-Assistant Instructors may supervise, escort, and assist in PSAI Open Water Diver Courses. They may act in this capacity of an Open Water Diver Assistant Instructor only under the direct supervision of a PSAI Master Instructor. Under the direct supervision of a PSAI Master Instructor they may conduct Open Water Diver Course training exercises (thereby gaining valuable experience prior to taking an Open Water Instructor IQC).
