Our IDCs are about more than just getting you through the Instructor Exams. Our aim is to equip you with the knowledge, tools and skills to be a safe, competent and successful PADI dive Instructor after you pass the Instructor Exams. We run a full 14-day Instructor Development program (including extended dive theory “prep” classes) and include special workshops on complex skills such as lift bag exercises, CESA & descent skills, and conducting DSDs.
PADI launched their revised Instructor Development Course in late 2019, and we were thrilled to be two of the first Course Directors to adopt this new program. Their world class Instructor Development program has been enhanced with practical workshop and realistic teaching presentations. Add to this our own tips and suggestions from years of teaching, and other extras in our program, and you have the best package available.
With every IDC, we also include a:
1 Extra month practicing at HDC co-teaching and co-guiding real clients after your certification (optinal)
FREE PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Instructor
FREE Boat dives
FREE Sidemount diving introduction
We give one-to-one counselling during all our programs to help you overcome any hurdles and develop your strengths to get the most out of your instructor-training experience.
If you are looking to expand your teaching skills and knowledge outside of the IDC then we also offer our MSDT Prep program covering the most valuable PADI Specialties.
The IDC can be divided into five sections:
PADI’s IDC eLearning is a self-study program designed to help you get familiar with the PADI system and prepare you for the workshops that we will run together. It includes 16 interactive segments that you read through on your personal tablet, phone, or computer
