Details about the Instructor Development Course


 

Instructor Development Course (IDC)

Relaxed program

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 of this, and more, awaits you as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.

 

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is the core of PADI Instructor training. The first portion is the Assistant Instructor course followed by the Open Water Scuba Instructor program. The IDC introduces you to the entire PADI System of diver education and concentrates on further developing your abilities as a professional dive educator.
 

What do you need to start?

 To qualify for training you must:
 
  Be certified as a PADI Divemaster or a PADI Assistent Instructor or
  Be an instructor with another training organization for at least six months
  Be certified as an Emergency First Response Instructor *
  Be at least 18 years old
  Be certified as a diver for at least six months
  Have 100 logged dives that include experience in night, deep and navigation diving to participate in the Instructor Development Course.
  Have proof of CPR and First Aid training within the last 24 months. The Emergency First Response course meets this requirement
  Be fit for diving and submit a Medical Statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months


 * If you not already Emergency First Response Instructor this course can also be done during or after 
    the IDC
 

The fun part

It’s about life transformations—both yours and those around you.

The fun part of instructor training is interacting with course participants while creating friendships that continue long after the course concludes. You’ll also have the opportunity to continue your professional education by participating in specialty instructor courses, which train you to teach specialties after instructor certification.


The challenging part

The challenging part of this course is your personal commitment to the training. The course requires you to complete all the self-study Knowledge Reviews before the course begins and to prepare daily assignments for teaching presentations daily. Organization and dedication are key.


What can you do after the course?

After becoming an Open Water Scuba Instructor, you will be able to conduct the entire range of PADI programs from Discover Scuba Diving up to Divemaster. You may also choose to acquire specialty instructor ratings in areas of interest, such as Digital Underwater Photographer or Enriched Air Diver.


Your next adventure

You’ll want to continue your professional training by completing courses that allow you to teach beyond the core courses. For example, Emergency Oxygen Provider Instructor, Emergency First Response Instructor, and specialty instructor courses complement your Open Water Scuba Instructor rating and add to your professional portfolio.
