The 2013 PADI Instructor manual is now available as a free download for renewed PADI Professionals.
After logging in to the PADI Pro’s Site, click on Training Essentials from the main menu then choose Digital Instructor Manual.
On the next screen you’ll see several language options. Click the language you wish to download and save the PDF to your computer or other device. Below the language list is an (English only) option to download a summary of the changes from the 2012 to 2013 PADI Instructor Manual.
Teaching an IDC? Be sure candidates download a copy of the new manual and continue to update it with subsequent training bulletins. The Systems, Standards and Procedures Exam at the IE are updated regularly to reflect the most current standards. This is also an excellent way of instilling the good habit of referencing the latest materials before teaching any PADI programs.
