The PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) is the mixture of both the AI and OWSI programs. Taught over one course, it builds upon each block to turn you in an effective SCUBA instructor. The course contains some segments that can be covered through the eLearning facility. This decreases classroom time and focuses more on the practical aspects of teaching.
Freestyle difference: Even though passing the Instructor Exam is a mandatory step of the process, we will not focus on much more than this during the IDC. After your IDC with us, not only will you pass without having to worry about it, but more important, you will be ready to teach your first students right away!
