IDC Online Packages

Our IDC training 

PADI has recently launched the option of splitting the IDC into 3 parts – IDC eLearning, IDC online presentations with the Course Director (ATTENTION, this is NOT the eLearning! The IDC eLearning will also be provided, This is an online presentation with Course Director / IDC Staff for 4 hours for 8 days before the IDC Practical part starts) AND The IDC practical part with live workshops and Confined and open water presentations will be run at the dive center facility.

This means that you will have access to the most up-to-date, practical, convenient, and also exclusive digital training materials.  These materials will be yours as soon as you make your deposit with us so that you can start preparing for your IDC straight away.  
Completing part of your training beforehand via eLearning AND THE ONLINE CLASS presentations with our CD means that the time that you spend with us will be utilized in the most beneficial ways.  We will help you build on your knowledge and apply your instructor-level skills in a practical way that will help you not just in the IDC and examination process but also when you start your real diving instructor career.

Our IDC practical training part is a 10-day development program.  This means that you will save up some days to study, relax, and save on accommodation costs. IDC days are not rushed nor too long, giving you plenty of time to prepare your presentations or enjoy the area.  You will also work on your strengths and weaknesses with our dedicated GoPro team.  It also means that we can include our special workshops designed to give you a better understanding of how to teach complex skills such as lift-bag use, CESA, DESCENTS & ASCENTS, RESCUE skills, etc., and Dive Theory online review (we do not teach Dive Theory, but review doubts, questions and topics in advance online) classes to improve your knowledge and understanding of dive theory.

As PADI Instructors also need to be EFR Instructors, we run the EFR Instructor Course during the IDC over one day.  This is a highly 1 day practical and enjoyable course with a focus on Care for Children. The EFR Instructor eLearning is provided.

The final Instructor Examination, run by PADI staff (IE) will take place just after the IDC where you will give presentations in confined, open water and classroom, as well as take PADI Standards and dive theory exams.  A PADI Examiner will conduct the I.E.

Besides all of this, we also include a FREE PADI Enriched AIR Nitrox Specialty AND PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Instructor Course, with any purchase of an IDC, plus a FREE FUN dive.

Can you take Specialty Instructor Courses after your IDC?

Of course!  After each IE, candidates can continue in the very popular MSDT Preparation course.  During the MSDT Preparation course, we will be teaching you how to broaden your professional capabilities, afterwards, you will be able to teach 7 PADI Specialties (Deep, Emergency Oxygen Provider, Wreck, Drift, EANx, AWARE Dive Against Debris & Night).  Being able to teach Specialty courses gives you the chance to pursue your interests and makes you more employable in the process. 
 Our MSDT Prep Program includes 7 PADI Specialty training courses.  With these 7 Specialties, you can apply to become a Master Scuba Diver Trainer once you have attained 25 student certifications. 

As part of our MSDT Prep program, we also allow you to team-teach your first courses during our FREE up to 3-week instructor internship.  You will be shadowed alongside our experienced instructors gaining valuable experience of the “real world”. Team-teaching your first courses as an instructor is highly recommended by PADI and in our opinion, this is a hands-on dive industry opportunity that should not be missed.
