PADI IDC Instructor Development Course

Our training to be a PADI instructor consist of 3 parts. 1) The Emergency First Response Instructor course (EFRI) The Emergency First Response Instructor Course is a one day course. Depending on the IDC group we can schedule it at the beginning, middle or at the end of the IDC. During your Emergency First Response Instructor course you will update your knowledge to the latest CPR, Primary and Secondary care skills using an infant, junior and adult mannequin as well as an Automated External Defibrillator training unit while giving classroom presentations and hands on practical sessions. 2) The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) – combining the Assistant Instructor course (AI) with the Open Water Scuba Instructor course (OWSI) To become a PADI instructor you have to pass the 11 day IDC training followed by a two day exam. During the course you will learn how to teach PADI courses safe and effectively which enables you to work anywhere in the world after you pass your exam. The Instructor Development Course is - as the name already suggests - a devolpment course. After each presentation – either in the water or in the classroom – we will evaluate your performance and help you improve your teaching skills. You will also learn from the other IDC candidates while playing students for your colleagues. At the end of the IDC you will be more than ready to go and pass the Instructor Exam. 3) The Instructor Examination (IE). Most dive professionals complete the entire IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification. Successfully completing just the AI course results in a PADI Assistant Instructor qualification. When an AI is ready to progress, attending an OWSI program allows entry into an IE to earn a full PADI Instructor rating. Dive professionals who hold an instructor rating with another diver training organization may be eligible to enroll directly in the OWSI program. This recognizes prior instructor training and provides a path to become a PADI Instructor. A PADI Divemaster who has been a certified diver for six months may enroll in the PADI Instructor Development Course. You also need: At least 60 logged dives and 100 dives to attend an IE. To make it easier for you to get a job after you certify as a PADI instructor we include the Master Scuba Diver Trainer (MSDT) preparation into our IDC training. This means you will be trained to be an instructor in 5 specialties and are able to teach these as soon as you are certified as a PADI Instructor. The specialties you can choose from are: Boat, Deep, Drift, Naturalist, Night, Nitrox, Sidemount...
