PADI IDC Course

padi-idc

When you are a Divemaster and want to become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, we have a 12 day IDC or a 1 month internship that will help you to become qualified.  (See both options below).

In our program we make sure you leave with a great theory of knowledge, outstanding diving and can demonstrate that you have the skills and focus on becoming a responsable and safe dive Instructor.

We have the best set up for these programs, with a comfortable air-conditioned conference room at the hotel for the classroom sessions, and we are the only company to have a swimming pool onsite, which means you can practise your skills whenever you like.

You will learn how to teach PADI courses from Open Water Diver to Divemaster and even a few other specialties.

As we want to spend less time in the classroom and more in the water our students can do the online IDC presentations before they come to us.

Also for the best preparation for the exams we give you the theory online from PADI so you can prepare your knowledge at your own pace in your own time.

With this approach we take out a lot of unnecessary stress during your actual Instructor program learning about your theory knowledge, and allows you to focus completely on your teaching skills.

When you sign up you will receive your online access pass through PADI and you can complete that part when it is convenient for you.

That will take away the long lectures during the IDC on topics of business in diving, marketing diving etc. in the classroom which we better spend practicing skills. Of course your Course Director is always available for questions and explanations on theory etc.
