PADI Scuba Diving Instructor Course
If you like people, have a passion for scuba diving and want an extraordinary life, become a scuba diving pro Instructor through the PADI Instructor Development Course.
Teaching scuba diving allows you to share your love of the aquatic world with others while doing what you enjoy most: being in, around and under water.
PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors and PADI Assistant Instructors are the most sought-after dive professionals around the world because they’ve completed the program that sets the standard for training dive professionals. You earn a PADI Instructor rating through hard work and commitment, but you are rewarded with a job that lets you share incredible underwater adventures with others, transforming their lives for the better and enriching yours.
Are you ready to join the ranks of the dedicated professionals who teach the world’s most progressive and popular scuba diver education programs? Then, enrol an Instructor Development Course (IDC).
What does the course look like and what will you learn?
The PADI Scuba Diving Instructor Development Course (IDC) extends over eleven days. Your PADI Course Director (trainer) will teach you how to successfully pass the PADI INSTRUCTOR EXAM (IE). Over these eleven days, you will learn how to present theory lessons and develop pool and sea practical sessions. Public presentation skills will be focused on, which will make you a better speaker.
In addition, you will become an expert in rescue techniques. You will also be trained as a First Aid Instructor.
The course is very practical, that is, you will learn how to develop and teach your own course, once you have successfully completed the IE.
The PADI examination is conducted by PADI’s own Examiner, not by your Course Director. This is a quality warranty, as you must be very well prepared to successfully pass the examination. For this reason, PADI Instructors, are scuba diving professionals that have proven their high qualification in their training.
If you are a scuba diving professional accredited by another organisation, you may enrol directly in the Instructor course and apply for the IE to become a PADI Instructor.
If you are a PADI Divemaster who has been a certified diver for six months, you may enrol in the PADI Instructor Development Course.
