What to Expect

The IDC teaches you to conduct all PADI core courses. You'll be able to organize and present information, conduct skill development sessions and control open water dives.

Candidates develop their instructor-level knowledge and skills in the Instructor's Development Course through:

  • Independent study
  • Live presentations and workshops conducted or supervised by a PADI Course Director and IDC Staff Instructors.
  • The IDC emphasizes development, not testing, and so provides a low-stress environment that frees candidates to learn from their errors and concentrate on knowledge and skill development.

On completion of the Instructor Development Course, you will attend the PADI Instructor Exam. The Instructor Examination (IE) evaluates the candidate's teaching ability, dive knowledge, skills level, understanding of the PADI System, attitude, professionalism, and other attributes required of PADI Instructors.

We offer a Full-time Program, an Accelerated Program, and a Part-time Program. You can join at any time of the year.
