PADI Instructor Development Course - IDC

Are you looking for something extraordinary? To do something others can only dream of? To help people transform their lives? To open doors you didn’t even know existed? All this, and more, awaits you as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI).

What's involved?

The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) — is the core of PADI Instructor training. The first portion is the PADI Assistant Instructor (AI) course followed by the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program.
The challenging part of the IDC-course is your personal commitment to the training. The IDC-course requires you to complete all the self-study Knowledge Reviews before the course begins and to prepare daily assignments for teaching presentations. Organization and dedication are, therefore, the key.
During the IDC-course you’ll learn how to apply the PADI System of Education through:
 

  • Two teaching presentations in confined water.
  • Two presentations for expanding knowledge.
  • One open water teaching presentation integrating two skills.
  • Performing all 20 dive skills listed on the Skill Evaluation.
  • Performing a facedown, nonstop swim for 800 meters’/yards using a mask, snorkel and fins.

During the IDC-course you’ll need to demonstrate competence in dive theory by passing a five-part theory exam and you have to score 75% in each part. You will also attend and participate in 14 curriculum presentations

How can I benefit from this qualification?

After becoming a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI), you will be able to conduct the entire range of PADI programs from PADI Discover Scuba Diving up to PADI Divemaster. You may also choose to acquire Speciality Instructor ratings in areas of interest.
