PADI INSTRUCTOR DEVELOPMENT COURSE Change your life

The PADI Instructor Development Course

The PADI Instructor Development Course is your way to join a very special and privileged group of people. Those who teach others how to dive!  Being a PADI Instructor can take you around the world. It can be an entire new career. Or you can teach others in your spare time and at weekends.  Whatever you want to do, this is the starting point!

Whats Involved

Our Full time IDC is held over 8 days and includes EFR Instructor and 7 Instructor Specialities. The price ALSO includes accommodation at the Portland Bunkhouse .

The whole package if paid for course by course the price would be £1540 but book as a single 8 day package and we will reduce the price to £1240 – that’s a saving of £250!

You can of course book each element separately, and if you’d like to do that get in touch with us through the contact form.  If you just want the IDC it will be £850.  Specialties can be done 1 at a time (£120 per Spec) or as a 7 course package (£500).  EFR Instructor is a requirement for becoming an Open Water Instructor. As a stand alone course is £250.

The Bunkhouse is £17 a night if booked direct.

 

 Who teaches the course?

Our PADI IDC is taught by 2 Course Directors, Dale Spree from Dive Beyond and Ian Craddock from Flippas-n-Fins.  Dale has been a CD for 13 years and has taught hundreds of instructors.  Ian is a new CD but as a result has all the latest and cutting edge techniques and info at his finger tips. Our IDC will give you the ALL the tools you need to pass the IE and be a truly great instructor.

We also offer pre-IDC courses either onsite or distance learning to help you prepare for the IDC.  Click here for more detail.

 

What You Learn

During the course you’ll learn how to apply the PADI System of Education by presenting at least

  • Two confined water teaching presentations
  • Two knowledge development presentations
  • One open water teaching presentations integrating two skills

 

What You Can Teach

After completing the IDC you will be elegable to go to a Instructor Examination, which once passing you become an Open Water Scuba Instructor, this means 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.

 

The Scuba Gear You Use

You will need to equip yourself with all the basic scuba gear as well as two scuba signaling devices —one audible and one visual.


The Learning Materials You Need

The PADI Instructor Development Course crewpak includes all the materials needed to prepare for the Instructor Development Course. This is not included in the price the IDC. The 23-item pack includes:

  • Instructor cue cards for PADI’s core courses (Open Water and Advanced, Rescue and Divemaster)
  • Instructor Development Course Candidate Workbook and related reference materials,
  • Lesson planning slates for confined and open water
  • Quiz and exam booklets for the core courses
  • Specialty outlines for Project AWARE
  • PADI Instructor Manual
