PADI Instructor Development Course – “Basic”

“Basic” package includes:

  • IDC Preparation day
  • Full IDC course

Before you arrive:

Once we have received payment for your IDC, we will send you a link that will allow you to access PADI Pros eLearning.

This will enable you to study independently and at your own pace before class. There are nine interactive knowledge development sections. Completing the online section before arrival saves classroom time, which allows more time for practicing the skills that distinguish you as a PADI Instructor both in and out of the water.

Course Details:

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. Basically, you become a better public speaker and get really good at demonstrating skills while watching out for student diver safety. Key topics include:

  • PADI Standards and Procedures for courses you can teach with in water workshops.
  • Learning, Instruction and the PADI System.
  • Risk Management and Diver Safety.
  • The Business of Diving and your role as an instructor.
  • Marketing Diving and Sales Counselling.


IDC Preparation

Meet the Course Director and staff as well as completing any last-minute paperwork.
Review the five theory topics that you covered during your IDC eLearning and have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have on these subjects.

You will also complete a skill circuit to refresh the 24 skills from the PADI Divemaster.
