INSTRUCTOR DEVELOPMENT COURSE
If you want to have one of the best jobs in the world, call the ocean your office and work in some of the most beautiful places on earth, then becoming a dive instructor is an amazing way of living your dream.
* We include the costs of PADI materials separately in our professional courses as candidates may wish to personally purchase in advanced. If you wish to purchase the materials through us, then please let us know with enough time to have them shipped
If you have a passion for diving and like people, then being an instructor allows you to share this love of the aquatic world with others while doing what you enjoy most, being in and around water.
PADI professionals are the most sought after in the world because they have completed a program that sets the standard for training dive professionals. Achieving an instructor rating is a lot of hard work and commitment and one that you earn, but the reward is that you get to share this life of adventure with others, transforming their lives. No one ever forgets their first dive nor the instructor that taught them.
You also have the bonus of doing your course in one of the most beautiful places on earth. One that boasts such seasonal pleasures as Whale sharks, Eagle rays at the shipwreck, and Loggerhead turtle mating dives. Isla Mujeres has one of the top 5 most beautiful beaches in the world and its international culinary delights are just a short walk away.
Our IDC training center, located within Selinas, offers a comfortable, professional environment, conducive to studying and learning. All within the tropical, beautiful hotel that is Selinas, with access to a swimming pool designed with the IDC in mind and located on its own beach close to the famous North Beach
The instructor course follows three basic paths, all of which apply the same IDC instructional system and performance requirements
You may complete the Instructor Development Course (IDC) as a single program (AI and OWSI)
You may take the Assistant Instructor course (AI) , which consists of key IDC components and then complete the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) which includes the remaining IDC components
An instructor from another dive organisation may cross-over to become a PADI instructor by completing the OWSI program
The IDC consists of 2 components
Attending the two parts together is what we call Full IDC training
This course also includes three extra modules
1 PADI IDC prep course
(2 days and scheduled before the commencement of the full IDC). This is included free of charge.
We highly recommend purchasing the dive theory online and commence study before beginning the course. (Normal cost $144 USD, special IDC price $57.60 USD)
2 PADI EFR Instructor
(1 1/2 days and included during the course) This is mandatory and is paid separately
3 Free PADI oxygen provider instructor speciality course
to be completed alongside the EFRI course (PADI certification fee paid separately)
A free day of diving or whale sharks is included during the course free of charge and depending upon the season.
After completion of your PADI IDC, you will be independently assessed in a PADI examiner over 2 ½ days.
This is your PADI Instructor Examination (IE)
