PADI INSTRUCTOR DEVLOPMENT COURSES

COURSES STARTING EVERY 2ND MONTH ALL YEAR ROUND!
Internationally recognized PADI Instructor Certification
Qualifies you as a PADI Dive Professional to Teach PADI Scuba Courses
TRAINING OVERVIEW:
The PADI instructor Development Course (IDC) is the heart of the instructor training process. During the IDC, you will apply your diving skills and knowledge to learn to teach the PADI system in the Classroom, Confined Water (Pool) and in Open Water.
The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) consists of 2 training phases – The Assistant Instructor (AI) Program and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) Program.
The IDC is then followed by a two day Instructor Examination (IE), conducted by PADI Worldwide.
Completion of the training phase may be met by taking either an Instructor Development Course (AI) plus (OWSI), or by completing the programs individually as it suits you.
However, it is highly recommended that you complete the IE as soon as viable after the OWSI program.
PADI Divemasters or PADI Assistant Instructors and qualified Divemasters from other recreational scuba-training agencies may enroll in an IDC.
Renewed in-date PADI Assistant Instructors that have upgraded with the 2001 update are only required to complete the OWSI program.
The PADI Instructor Examination (IE) is the evaluation phase of the PADI IDC.
Candidates who have successfully completed an IDC enroll in a PADI IE.

To be a certified PADI Open Water Instrcutor, an individual must successfully complete a PADI IE conducted by a PADI Instructor Examiner
